Coding Interview Practice #4

We are back at Chartboost for this meetup.

Doors open at 5:45 and we start at 6:00. Please note that due to the building security at Chartboost's office, the doors will be locked for entry after 6:30, so please arrive on time. Also, we won't be serving food or drinks, so eat before!

The format is the usual: A quick meet & greet, then pair off and solve some problems on paper/whiteboard walls.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

    This was a great meetup. Fantastic practice which I really needed. The people I worked with were really smart guys and super helpful and patient so I was really appreciative of their insights and guidance. Helped me analyse my code which will be great for interviews and in my daily coding. Thanks to all.

    I'll like to suggest that we perhaps try out a different type of problem each week, perhaps loosely based on topics in coding interview books. Maybe have 1 meetup on recursion and dynamic programming, 1 meetup on bit manipulation, 1 meetup on graph traversal etc. Or maybe based on going through conceptual problems on various languages e.g. why must a C++ destructor always be virtual. On another note, I've noticed that in response to the increasing availability of coding interview books and consequent improving ability of candidates to do these questions, programming interviews have been getting more challenging, and some companies require candidates to do a 2-hour custom problem before the phone interview, which is usually different from problems in coding interview books. Wonder how we can address this.

      Zhiyong,

      In some instances I think most people would prefer to do things at random instances as it helps adjust your mind to do more technical-related stuff on-the-fly. The best thing to do in these instances are to keep practicing and studying them, hence the meetup name "Coding Interview Practice".

      In your other note, again, just keep on studying/practicing to recognize a pattern. The main priority is to get comfortable with them; usually these custom problems that you mention tend to be more of the real-world stuff, only in simpler cases. Keep in mind that not everybody knows everything, so don't go overboard with them.
