We have created a free online two-hour course on Graph Search that may be
of interest to beginner programming students. We are looking for people
around the world to take it. Please forward this to whoever you think may
be interested, whether students, teachers or schools.

Have you ever wondered how social networks find people to suggest as new
friends? If you have two hours, you can find out right now! Finding friends
online, solving a Rubik’s cube and searching for new pages on the internet
are all connected by something called Graph Search, which is useful for new
programmers to learn as early as possible.
In our two-hour Graph Search mini-course, you will learn about social
networks, Rubik’s cubes and search engines as we cover Depth-First Search,
Breadth-First Search and Topological Sort. With the knowledge you gain in
Graph Search, you’ll be a step ahead in your next programming course, and
better prepared for future technical interviews.
