Let’s talk about algorithms. Specifically, the binary search tree algorithm. In this post, I’m going to explain (like you’re 5 years old) what a binary search tree is, how to implement it, and when we use it. Ready? Let’s go!

What is a Binary Search Tree?🌲

A binary search tree is an ordered tree data structure. It’s a convenient way to sort some data according to a set of “greater than/less than” rules.

The tree is made up of things called nodes. Whenever you add new data to your tree, it begins its sorting journey starting from the root node and going down the tree from there until it finds an empty position to insert itself at. More on those technical terms soon.

JavaScript: Chessboard Program

Exercise from Eloquent JavaScript. Today, we will write a function that forms a chessboard. You can find the exercise in the Eloquent Javascript book (3rd edition, chapter 2; Program Structure). Write a program that creates a string that represents an 8×8 grid, using newline characters to separate lines. At each position of the grid there is either a space or a “#” character. The characters should form a chessboard.

Learning JavaScript: Data Types and Variables

To paraphrase the title of an old computer science textbook, “Algorithms + Data = Programs.” The first step in learning a programming language such as JavaScript is to learn what types of data the language can work with. The second step is to learn how to store that data in variables. In this article I’ll discuss the different types of data you can work with in a JavaScript program and how to create and use variables to store and manipulate that data.
