Extended Courses Discount
My Go courses are discounted for the next few weeks to help out anyone who may need or want access to them. I'm also going to try to help out anyone who can't afford a course, and I will be writing posts about working from home over the next week in an attempt to help anyone new to WFH. Read more here.
In this video we cover how the depth first search algorithm works. We do so by starting with a binary tree and walking through how the algorithm would iterate over the tree searching for a specific node. We intentionally start with a tree because this removes a lot of complicating factors that might be present in other graphs, such as running into a cycle, but everything you learn here will be applicable to when we start working with cyclical graphs to also run our DFS.
