# What It Is and How It Can Make Your Code More Efficient

Have you ever tackled a problem so vast that you needed to break it down into smaller, more manageable pieces? If so, then you've already experienced a technique called dynamic programming!

Dynamic Programming: Taming Complex Problems
- Breaks down complex problems into smaller subproblems
- Stores solutions to subproblems in memory for efficient problem-solving
- Applicable in various contexts, from finance and economics to computer science

Dynamic Programming in Action
- Example: Finding the shortest path from point A to point B in a graph
- Inefficient approach: Consider every possible path and calculate its length
- Dynamic programming approach:
-> Calculate the length of the shortest path from point A to every other point in the graph
-> Use this information to find the length of the shortest path from point A to point B
- Saves time and computational resources, especially for larger graphs

Real-Life Example
"Dynamic programming has been a game-changer for our logistics operations. By efficiently determining the shortest routes for our deliveries, we've managed to save time and resources while boosting customer satisfaction." - Logistics Manager

Dynamic programming is a powerful technique for solving complex problems in diverse fields. By employing this approach, you can achieve more efficient problem-solving and unlock new levels of success in your endeavors.

At Startup House, we use dynamic programming to develop custom software solutions for our clients. Our team of expert software engineers leverages the power of dynamic programming to create efficient, scalable, and optimized software solutions that meet the unique needs of our clients. Dynamic programming allows us to break down complex problems into smaller, more manageable pieces, and find the optimal solution quickly and efficiently.

Fun fact!

Dynamic programming was first coined by a mathematician named Richard Bellman in the 1950s. He named it "dynamic programming" because he didn't want to use the word "optimal" in his research, which was funded by the military at the time. The word "optimal" had a negative connotation due to the cold war, so Bellman chose a more neutral name instead!
