Show HN: High Schoolers start video series on how to write data structures in C
5 points by logicprog 6 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite
Hi everyone! We (Christopher and Govind) have started a video tutorial series of 20-25 minute long episodes on how to make various common computer science data structures, such as vectors, linked lists, hashmaps, and so on. So far, we’ve done a two-part series on how to implement vectors.

Links to parts one and two of the Vectors series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr0KzD_Owxc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3kgbdhUIxU

(Sorry about the low quality of the video in the first link, we accidentally recorded in 720p. The second part is in 1080p!)

Although so far only one of us has done a video series on a data structure, we plan on taking turns to cover the most common data structures. Our endgame is to use all these data structures we build up to write a simple C compiler in a longer series of videos.

We have some plans to use a partially scripted setup to streamline the explanations of core concepts, and are currently simultaneously working on episodes on linked lists and hashmaps.

Let us know what you guys think!
