This thesis outlines the algorithm and methods used to solve for the ground state energy and other ground state properties of the Fr\"ohlich polaron. Using diagrammatic Monte Carlo methods, the full Green's function of the system can be found and the ground state energy can be extracted. In this thesis we will discuss how to construct the algorithm and each individual update, how to test the code for both debugging purposes and accuracy, as well as how to construct the internal data structures used.
