Competitive Programming Online

Overview

Coding Blocks is pleased to bring you the ultimate competitive programming course, hand crafted to ensure your success in challenges such as Google CodeJam, Google Kickstart, ACM-ICPC, and more. This 8 week programme will kickstart your foray in to the exciting world of competitive coding. You will master commonly used problem solving techniques, hone your mathematical analysis skills, and push the boundaries of your reasoning abilities. The course will cover Advanced Data Structures like Segment Trees, Binary Index / Fenwick Trees. You shall learn construct algorithms involving Dynamic Programming, Bitmasking, Greedy Algorithms, and Divide & Conquer. The course will also cover other advanced competitive topics. This course is for all the coders who are looking forward to optimizing their problem-solving process, and learn new algorithmic skills which will help them to solve problem quickly.

More than 180 recorded videos and 5 live webinars, along with 24x7 doubt clearing support. Course starting June 18.

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 course, 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 course 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 admissions@codingblocks.com if you have further queries)

  • Who should do this course?

    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 course.

  • Which programming language will be used in course?

    Although, the idea of the course 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 course and implement the same logic in the language they prefer.

  • What are the pre-requisites for this course ?

    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 course 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 ?

    Coding Blocks Competitive Programming Module is shipped separately and can be purchased from Amazon for reference.

    Review:

    I joined C++ course in coding blocks,pitampura. It has been a wonderful experience since then. Course content is well structured and taught at a nice pace with ample questions covered in class. Assignments given contain good questions both in quality and quantity.

    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.
