Sometimes, you’ll need to keep track of many things in a collection and your main goal is to be able to find them quickly when needed. If you use a vector or a list, then you have to examine each item one at a time until you find the one you want. Or you might want to keep things sorted in a vector to help you find them faster. But if you’re going to do that, then you’ve given up one of the biggest advantages of the vector which is to keep things in the order you specify. And you take on extra responsibility to keep everything sorted.
If you find yourself in this situation, then a better solution is to use a different container. A map maintains its own order that allows you to find things fast. Maps are a little harder to work with but you’ll have no trouble once you learn to use them properly.
This is an online class that you can attend from anywhere. All you need is a good internet connection and your computer. It will help if you have a large monitor or even two monitors so that you can watch and follow along at the same time. Headphones or earbuds with a microphone are recommended to avoid echos.
This is a live class where you can ask questions if you like. Or you can listen and learn and follow along without asking anything if that makes you more comfortable.
We recommend that you plan to join a few minutes early to give yourself time to connect. Click the Venue, Virtual GoToMeeting, for details on how to join.
