Recursion, Algorithms and Data Structures

About the Book

Here are some questions for you:

Did you learn your recursion in school or somewhere online but you did not make it

more that fibonnaci numbers?

Do you need algorithms to solidify your understanding of recursion?

Do you want to get better at functional programming?

Do you want to understand how to use recursion on multiple data structures?

Do you want to learn what is recursive leap of faith? (more on that in later chapter)

If there is one yes answer you are on right place.

In this book I will teach you how to use recursion with data structures and basic

data types. We will use JavaScript programming language. You can use any one

that you like. But its better to use some that is functional oriented. (Scala,

JavaScript etc…)
