Programming interviews are like standard plays in professional sport – prepare accordingly. Don’t let Programming Interview gotchas get you down!

  • The course instruction is in Hindi
  • Programming interviews differ from real programming jobs in several important aspects, so they merit being treated differently, just like set pieces in sport.
  • Just like teams prepare for their opponent’s playbooks in professional sport, it makes sense for you to approach programming interviews anticipating the interviewer’s playbook
  • This course has been drawn by a team that has conducted hundreds of technical interviews at Google and Flipkart

What’s Covered:

  • Pointers: Memory layout of pointers and variables, pointer arithmetic, arrays, pointers to pointers, pointers to structures, argument passing to functions, pointer reassignment and modification – complete with visuals to help you conceptualize how things work.
  • Strings: Strings, Character pointers, character arrays, null termination of strings, string.h function implementations with detailed explanations.
  • Linked lists: Visualization, traversal, creating or deleting nodes, sorted merge, reversing a linked list and many many problems and solutions, doubly linked lists.
  • Sorting and searching algorithms: Visualize how common sorting and searching algorithms work and the speed and efficiency of those algorithms
  • Recursion: Master recursion with lots of practice! 8 common and uncommon recursive problems explained. Binary search, finding all subsets of a subset, finding all anagrams of a word, the infamous 8 Queens problem, executing dependent tasks, finding a path through a maze, implementing PaintFill, comparing two binary trees
  • Step-by-step solutions to dozens of common programming problems: Palindromes, Game of Life, Sudoku Validator, Breaking a Document into Chunks, Run Length Encoding, Points within a distance are some of the problems solved and explained.
  • Trees and Binary Search Trees
  • Heaps and Binary Heaps
  • Graphs

Expected Outcomes

  1. Know how to approach and prepare for coding interviews
  2. Understand pointer concepts and memory management at a very deep and fundamental level
  3. Tackle a wide variety of linked list problems and know how to get started when asked linked list questions as a part of interviews
  4. Tackle a wide variety of general pointer and string problems and know how to answer questions on them during interviews
  5. Tackle a wide variety of general programming problems which involve just plain logic, no standard algorithms or data structures, these help you get the details right!
