Recommended for student who are good data structures and algorithms and want to learn more new concepts and tricks used in Competitive Coding can do this bootcamp.
Competitive Coding Bootcamp
Hone your Competitive Programming skills with our 1 week bootcamp on Competitive Coding. This course is all about optimizing your problem solving process and algorithm skills, which will enable you to compete with your peers at solving problems quickly. The vast majority of problems that appear in programming contests are mathematical or logical in nature. Typically, such tasks belong to one of the following categories: Combinatorics, Number Theory, Graph Theory, Geometry, String Analysis and Data Structures. Such problems are also asked in exams such as Google APAC, coding contests and competititons like ACM-ICPC.
There is a total of 8 classes in the bootcamp. The bootcamp starts on July 15.
Mathematics, Number Theory
Divide & Conquer, The Greedy Approach, Misc Problems
Segment Trees, Lazy Propagation Fenwick Tree & Binary Index Tree
Bit-Masking, Dynamic Programming
Advanced DP Problems, Graphs
Misc Graphs Problems
Maths & Number Theory
We will cover various Number Theory Topics like Prime Sieve, Segmented Sieve, Euler's Totient Fn, Chinese Remainder Theorem etc along with Maths Topics like Birthday Paradox Problem, Pigeonhole Principle, Inclusion-Exclusion Principle and much more.
DP and Graphs
In the bootcamp, you will learn to solve problems using Dynamic Progamming. You will also learn to solve Graph problems using DP and Graph Algorithms. Dynamic Programming is the most important topic from the view of most exams.
The bootcamp will cover a variety of questions based on Greedy Strategy. You will learn when to apply greedy technique and then DP.
Game theory & Segment Trees
You will learn the basic concepts of Game Theory(like Nim Game) and apply those concepts to solve problems. Segment Trees an important data structure for solving problems will also be covered. You will learn to optimise your ST using Lazy Propagation.

Who should do this bootcamp?
Which programming language will be used in Bootcamp?
Although, the idea of the bootcamp is to teach you new concepts, we will be using C++ for the codes shared. More focus will be on logic and algorithms. Students who know Java/Python can also do this bootcamp and implement the same logic in the language they prefer.
What are the pre-requisites for this bootcamp ?
You should have good knowledge of basics(like sorting,searching, recursion ) and data-structures ( stacks, queues, linked lists, hashing, heaps, trees, graphs) along with space-time complexity analysis on problems.
Will this improve my ranking in Online Competitions ?
Yes, definitely. The bootcamp will teach you new concepts and tricks and will help you become smarter with solutions.
Will I get Coding Blocks Competitive Programming Module for studying ?
Yes, you will get a copy of Coding Blocks Competitive Programming Module for study and assignments.
What our students say
"Difficult Problems now a CakeWalk !"
I had no background in coding. After the course, I feel more confident. Sumeet sir made difficult algorithms look like a cakewalk.I also enrolled for Android Course, and its amazing too. Coding Blocks defined my love for Coding.Piyush Ajmani - via Quora
"Cracked Amazon the next day!"
I used to lag in C++ basics, but with Prateek Bhayia as my mentor I saw great improvement in coding style and problem solving approach.Just after the day of my course completion, I got internship offer from Amazon.Manish Mittal - via Facebook

"Really Good Experience"
I had a really good experience studying at Coding Blocks. Coding Blocks helped in a shaping solution building approach. Classes are held regularly and we practiced a lot. My only regret is not joining Coding Blocks earlier.Bhavyaa Bansal - via Facebook
