CS2 Data Structures Activity
|Title||CS2 Data Structures Activity|
|Overview||Using the HFOSS OpenMRS project to illustrate the use of data structures in a complex system|
|Prerequisite Knowledge||CS1 and Java|
Data structures are widely used in the development of large complex software systems. The decision to use a particular data structure is made by the programmer or in many cases a development team. Several factors must be considered including storage requirements, time requirements of the various operations that will be performed on the data, and usage patterns (i.e. the number of deletions, insertions, updates, etc.).
This activity will explore a class within the OpenMRS code base where a number of data structures are utilized. As such, it is expected that the students will have some general knowledge about the OpenMRS project.
