Data Structures is traditionally a “bogeyman” discipline in Computer Science courses and has a high degree of failure. In FATEC São José dos Campos we are adopting a hybrid approach, with C and Python languages. The failure rate decreased from 85% (2008) to 10% (2015). The talk will be extensively illustrated with code in C and Python, addressing the various concepts taught in this course.
