Dear Aditya Bhargava,


Does the book contain practical implementations of the algorithms ?

If yes, in what language ?


Thanks.

Dear Aditya Bhargava,


Who is the target audience for your book ?

What are the prerequisites for reading your book, what base knowledge may come in handy ?


Thanks.

Dear Aditya Bhargava,


Does the book contain practical exercices and their solutions ?

Is there a companion website for your book ?


Thanks.

Hi Ludoviko,
Many of the chapters do have practical implementations. The source code is online in Python and Ruby:
https://github.com/egonschiele/grokking_algorithms

In the book, I go through the code line by line (I don't like it when tech books just have a page of code with no comments or explanation).

Target audience: see my answer here:
https://coderanch.com/t/665756/design/Grokking-Algorithms-python

Prerequisite: the only prereq is coding knowledge in one language. I use Python in the book, but you can read the book even if you don't know Python.

Exercises and solutions: YES! This book contains both.
