Learn by doing — Writing real code in the browser means learning faster than you would with videos.

Free tier — Free basic access to all lessons forever. We’ll even hook you up with Pro features on a 7-day free trial.

Learn advanced algorithms with Python — gain skills in one of the world’s most popular programming languages & pass tough interview questions with your algorithms understanding.

Why should you learn Advanced Algorithms?

advanced algorithms course 1024x576 1

Once you’ve mastered our other courses, Big O Algorithms and Big O Data Structures, you’ve still got a bit to learn before you have the level of education a typical CS grad at university would have. This course fills in the gaps.

As you code in Python and complete interactive coding lessons and multiple-choice questions, you’ll learn all about advanced topics like graph theory and dynamic programming.

Stack Overflow’s 2020 report on Python:

$120,000 average salary

Growing in popularity — Most used language for AI and machine learning

Loved by coders — 3rd most loved language

We love JavaScript because it is:

Simple & quick to learn — Python reads like English and lets you get to the meat of the logic faster

Modern — Python 3 is the latest version and it’s what we teach in all our courses

Attractive to employers — Python is still on the rise year over year with more and more companies on board

Frequently Asked Questions

Interested in upgrading to get full access to our Advanced Algorithms course, but unsure what that entails?

What’s the difference between Basic and Pro?

A Basic account is, well, basic. You can demo Pro features on the first 6 exercises of each course (such as our Algorithms courses). But after that, if you’re on a Basic plan, you’ll only be able to read the course material and play in the code sandbox. You won’t get access to feedback on your code know if you got the right answers.

Qvault Pro has everything in Basic, plus all the advanced tools, content, solutions, and certifications that you need to make your learning faster.

A Pro account lets you practice much more efficiently by getting instant verification of all your code solutions. If you get stuck, you can use the “cheat” feature to take a look at the solution and quickly see what’s holding you up.

Additionally, one of the biggest benefits our Pro subscribers get is access to free certificates of completion when they finish a course. Showing off your work to employers is a quick way to get that high-paying tech job

For a full list of the differences between Pro and Basic, view our Pricing page.

Do you offer any discounts?

Our top priority is improving the courses, the app, and your experience — so your feedback is super valuable to us.

If you’re happy to help us keep improving our courses to be the best they can be, we’re currently offering a 25% discount to anyone who completes this feedback form. When you’re finished with the survey you’ll be given a coupon code!

Do I need to have taken previous algorithms courses first?

We recommend you take our previous algorithms courses, Big O Data Structures and Big O Algorithms, before Advanced Algorithms.

Why should I upgrade to Qvault Pro?

I built Qvault based on the lessons I’ve been learning as a technical hiring manager, so everything we do here is designed to take you from your current level, and get you an eventual high-paying programming job. If you’re ready to accelerate your learning and apply your skills to real-world scenarios, then Qvault Pro is for you.

Aside from the direct benefits, if you like what we’re building here at Qvault, your support helps us improve the platform.

How easy is it to cancel my subscription if I don’t like it?

We do our best to be transparent about pricing, and never want anyone keeping a subscription they don’t use. You can cancel your subscription any time from your settings page and you won’t be billed again.
