Algorithms for the rest of us

I think a lot of developers today work  in the software industry without a deep knowledge of what the algorithms are. They use the nice classed provided by the framework they use, without knowing what is an algorithm.

Well I think if you a re an engineer you need to be able to build at least your dog house, before to go building a skyscraper…

Yesterday I bought this book

It;s a very good one, written for an university course, so full of examples and exercise. A must. I will write example, specially in F#, trying to port the imperative code in a functional fashion.
