Why Learn Recursion?
Recursion gives you a new perspective on problem-solving by defining a problem in terms of itself. This mind-bending concept unlocks new strategies for reducing difficult tasks into a few lines of code. The best part is recursion is a concept which can be used in almost any programming language!
You’ll be ready to use recursion to write clean and elegant code, and use recursion to ace whiteboarding problems!
Note on Prerequisites:
You should be comfortable with basic Python syntax, such as functions, lists, loopings, etc.
