About this video
Programming interviews are like standard plays in professional sport  prepare accordingly. Don't let Programming Interview gotchas get you down! 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. 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 problems and solutions, doubly linked lists. Bit Manipulation: Work with bits and bit operations. 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. Data Structures: Understand queues, stacks, heaps, binary trees and graphs in detail along with common operations and their complexity. Includes code for every data structure along with solved interview problems based on these data structures. Stepbystep solutions to dozens of common programming problems: Palindromes, Game of Life, Sudoku Validator, Breaking a Document into Chunks, Run Length Encoding, and Points within a distance are some of the problems solved and explained.
Style and Approach
This course requires some basic understanding of a programming language, preferably C. Some solutions are in Java, though Java is not a requirement
