7 Reasons you must learn Algorithms

Algorithms are the secret ingredient for success, and you don't have to be a programmer to add them to your recipe.

Here are 7 Reasons you must learn algorithms:

1. Solve Problem:

The main reason to study algorithms is to solve problems that otherwise cannot be addressed.

2. Broad and far-reaching:

In today's world, their impact is very broad and far-reaching. Be it the Internet, Biology, Computer Graphics, Security, Social Networks, Particle collision simulation, quantum computing etc.

3. To become a proficient programmer:

As Linus Trovalds said bad programmers worry about the code and good programmers worry about their data structures and their relationship with each other.

4. For intellectual simulation:

As Francis Sullivan once said that great algorithms are poetry of computation.

5. Common language to understand:

Algorithms have become a common language to understand nature. Computational models are replacing mathematical models.

6. Personal productivity:

Want to be a master of efficiency? Learn algorithms and watch your personal productivity soar.

7. The backbone of technology:

Algorithms are the backbone of technology and understanding them is like having a secret superpower.
