Competitive Coding Bootcamp

Overview

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.

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.

Greedy Problems

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.

FAQ

(Drop a line at [email protected] if you have further queries)

  • Who should do this bootcamp?

    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.

  • 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.

Review:

The best part of it was that they actually taught more than they mentioned in the curriculum without affecting the quality of the content being taught. As told, 80–100 questions were given in assignments, the faculty was available after and before the classes and was very friendly.
