Interview Prep: Formulas for Technical Solutions and Priority Queues with Heaps

Preparing for technical interviews? Join us to learn more about two topics that will help you land that next job!

== Formulas for Technical Solutions ==
We spend hours going through Leetcode or HackerRank questions writing code, optimizing, and picking through edge cases in our solutions to sharpen our skills breaking down and solving technical problems. However, solving technical problems isn't just about writing code. Effective communication is key to showing your knowledge of your solution and displaying how well you will work with others on the job. In this lighting talk, we will go through a set of steps to boost your communication skills in a technical interview.

== Implementing Priority Queues with Heaps ==
When we think of priority queues, we often think of a linear list structure where the high priority item is at one end and the low priority item is at the other. Unfortunately, operations on this type of structure are not optimal and this isn't how most languages implement priority queues. In this talk, we'll go over what heaps are and how they are used to implement priority queues.

== About the speaker ==
Alicia is a software developer in Philadelphia and a volunteer with Women Who Code Philadelphia. She has 10 years of experience building Java backend services in the cloud as her specialty and has dabbled across many different technologies from Python machine learning to Swift mobile development and a variety in between. You can find her on LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/abendz/ Twitter https://twitter.com/alibdev1 and at our regular Coffee, Code, and Chat meetup events!

Coffee, Code, & Chat — Quick Byte Edition

Online event

Grab a cup of coffee ☕️ (or your preferred hot beverage) and join us for this casual networking event to get to know other people working in tech!

This "Quick Byte" edition is a shorter, weekday version of our usual Saturday event!

We usually have casual chat for the first 5–10 minutes while people are still joining on and then do a round of introductions before we dive into the discussion.

We always open the floor to talk over whichever topics are on your mind at the moment, but if you have any discussion ideas beforehand, we encourage you to post them in the comment section below! We'll also come prepared with some "back pocket" topics to get the conversation flowing. 😉

Depending on the number of attendees, we'll break out into smaller groups to give everybody a chance to talk.
