This book is intended for Python developers who are studying courses concerned with data structures and algorithms at a beginner or intermediate level. The book is also designed for all those undergraduate and graduate engineering students who attend, or have attended, courses on data structures and algorithms, as it covers almost all the algorithms, concepts, and designs that are studied in this course. Thus, this book can also be adapted as a textbook for data structure and algorithm courses. This book is also a useful tool for generic software developers who want to deploy various applications using a specific data structure as it provides efficient ways of storing the relevant data. It also provides a practical and straightforward approach to learning complex algorithms.

It is assumed that the reader has some basic knowledge of Python. However, it is not mandatory as we provide a quick overview of Python and its object-oriented concepts in this book. There is no requirement to have any prior knowledge of computer-related concepts in order to understand this book, since all the concepts and algorithms are explained in sufficient detail, with a good number of examples and pictorial representations. Most of the concepts are explained with the help of everyday scenarios to make the concepts and algorithms easy to understand.
