There are many types of data structures within the world of programming. Most new coders are aware of structures such as arrays and hashes, but binary trees on the other-hand, especially for a bootcamp grad, are not as well known and/or understood.

In part 1 of this series, we will cover the following:

What is a Tree?

What are the differences between a tree and binary search tree?
