Interactive video lesson plan for: Lecture 12 | Programming Abstractions (Stanford)

Activity overview:

Lecture 12 by Julie Zelenski for the Programming Abstractions Course (CS106B) in the Stanford Computer Science Department.

Julie continues to go over pointers and moves on to recursive data and linked lists. She starts off explaining the basics of pointers and have two variables pointing to the same address then explains that it is better to not delete the same address more than once, as something not wanted might happen. Julie then explains the interaction between pointers and dynamic arrays.
