What You Will Learn?
- How to code a dynamic programming solution
- How to solve frequent 1D and 2D dynamic programming problems
- How to come up with a dynamic programming solution
Preparing for a job interview is no easy task, and it becomes manifold harder when you have a whiteboard coding interview coming up. Actually, a lot of developers straight up confess they are bad at (or even hate) them. If you are one of these developers and if you want to get better, this dynamic programming tutorial is just for you.
Learn the Most Common Coding Interview Questions
In this dynamic programming tutorial, you will solve all kinds of problems using dynamic programming. You will go through a number of 1-dimensional and 2-dimensional dynamic programming problems. You will learn how to derive the recurrence relation and write a recursive solution to it. Then you will write a dynamic programming solution to the problem and - in the span of just a few minutes - code it!
By the end of this dynamic programming tutorial, you will be entirely prepared for a whiteboard coding interview. You will know how to focus on complex algorithm-related questions that require deep and focused thinking and a good grasp of the concepts of problem-solving. That is, you will learn how to handle algorithm interview questions will ease and confidence.
To accomplish this, you will have to develop a strong intuition on how to solve new and novel problems. Therefore, this dynamic programming tutorial will provide you with a lot of powerful tools that will help you ace your coding interview. You will solve complex algorithm interview questions until you gain that intuition and be able to walk into a real interview confidently.
This Tutorial Was Created By Analyzing Real Interview Questions
The problems in this tutorial have been constructed and created by handpicking real interview questions, by combing through hundreds of interviews and handpicking the most common and eye-widening cases interviewees have been presented with.
These questions come from a number of tech companies, from new up-and-coming startups to massive corporate enterprises. The questions you will encounter in this tutorial are hard because beneath them hide complex problems involving profound concepts. When you know how to solve them, you will develop an intuition that will help you approach new questions you have never encountered. Your mind will become a powerful tool, ready to use all the tricks you have learned here.
Tutorial for Beginners with a Background on Recurrences
Each section will comprise numerous lectures - comprehensive video tutorial - showing you how to approach and solve on the spot any new problems you might encounter.
Each lecture will begin with an introduction - what you need to solve - and will move on to explaining the intuitions that hide behind the question (with graphic examples). Then you will learn the concepts and tricks that will help you solve the problem.
So if you are a beginner and don't know where to start, if the prospect of a whiteboard coding interview scares you - you need not worry anymore. This tutorial will teach you real interview questions to provide you with the intuition that will help you tackle any new problem you might encounter.
- You should have a slight background on recurrences
