Not recorded lectures, but the 'best' book I've found lately for a good intro is [1]"Basic Concepts in Data Structures" by Shmuel Tomi Klein. It uses pseudocode so can be done in any language. Look at the preview table of contents. There's a cheaper paperback and Amazon has used copies.

Another good book is CMU's parallel data structures and algorithms course http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~15210/schedule.html which uses this [2]free book



If you don't mind dropping a few bucks on Coursera, Tim Roughgarden's algorithms sequence adopted from his Stanford lectures and MOOC are exceptional:


Can't recommend enough. The material and instruction are top-notch.

They are actually available for free on the Stanford online course website.

CS 61B UC Berkeley. I don't know if it's the best but it's the only series on the topic I've ever watched all the way through: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMV45tHCYNI&list=PL4BBB74C7D...

Not sure how this compares with the other links shared here but, I have found MIT's OCW, especially the parts on Hashing to be pretty concise.


MIT lectures are already mentioned in the end.. and from your link, one of the tutor is same (one with pony) and the content also looks the same..

While I'm always suspicious of the word "Best" when applied to a list this does look quite interesting. Looks like a lot of the material overlaps but I'm guessing that's not a bad thing for complex material like this.

Using the word "best" isn't always quite appropriate. I think it is better to mention, "Best for <whom>".

Any suggestions for kids (age 5-12) -- to teach just basic concepts?
