    Algorithms have nothing to do with a programming language per se. Of course one language makes it easier to implement certain algorithms than the other but the two are two separate concepts. Both are worth studying. Data structures come with algorithms and they come with languages ...

    kind regards,

    If you are a starter, what would you cover first ? (I am at the start of the same chapter Data Structures/Generics for both text but I am thinking yet what cover first?)

    I have a question relative to Data Structures. Would you say Data Structures is imperative in JAVA, like Polymorphism?

    Start with Java. you must know at least one programming language well before you advance in any particular direction.
