About the Course

In this project you will read weather data from a file and populate a C++ Vector with the file data. The data is then uniquified in a Set data structure and stored in a Map for accessing data by year. C++'s standard template library or STL contains data structures or containers that are built for efficiency. They are used to store and retrieve data in various formats. A list such as a Vector can be used in place of an array to contain data where the size cannot be determined ahead of time. A List is like a Vector, except elements can be more quickly added and deleted from it, since no shifting needs to occur. A Map is used to quickly look up a value based on a key rather than a numerical index, for example, to look up a phone number based on a key containing a person's name. A Set may be used to remove duplicates from a list, simply by assigning the data to it. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

The material is ok but the tool provided is extremely irritating to work with. It would randomly and frequently collapse the panel I was trying to work in. I would almost certainly have given up on a longer project.

The instructor is good but the online IDE tool is poor , slow in response and even stops me from using it any more as the last session was too long. Any how , Thanks! hope this tool can be improved.
