# Break Away: Programming And Coding Interviews

## Break Away: Programming And Coding Interviews – Coding Tutorials and Tutorials

A course that teaches pointers, linked lists, general programming, algorithms and recursion like no one else

Programming interviews are like standard plays in professional sport – prepare accordingly. Do not let the Programming Interview getchas get you down! Programming interviews differ from real programming jobs in several important aspects, so they deserve to be treated differently, just like the 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 interviewer’s playbook this course was drawn by a team that has conducted hundreds of technical interviews in 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, creation or deletion of 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 the algorithms work and the speed and efficiency of these 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 the 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 a code for every data structure along with solved interview problems based on these data structures. Step-by-step 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. Includes a code for every data structure along with solved interview problems based on these data structures. Step-by-step 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. Includes a code for every data structure along with solved interview problems based on these data structures. Step-by-step 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.
