A Bottom-Up approach to problem solving
I wanted to compute 80th term of the Fibonacci series. I wrote the rampant recursive function, int fib(int n){ return (1==n || 2==n) ? 1 : fib(n-1) + fib(n-2); } and waited for the result. I wait… and wait… and wait… With an 8GB RAM and an Intel i5 CPU, why is it taking so long? I terminated more » the process and tried computing the 40th term. It took about a second. I put a check and was shocked to find that the above recursive function was called 204,668,309 times while computing the 40th term. More than 200 million times? Is it reporting function calls or scam of some government? The Dynamic Programming solution computes 100th Fibonacci term in less than fraction of a second, with a single function call, taking linear time and constant extra memory. A recursive solution, usually, neither pass all test cases in a coding competition, nor does it impress the interviewer in an interview of company like Google, Microsoft, etc. The most difficult questions asked in competitions and interviews, are from dynamic programming. This book takes Dynamic Programming head-on. It first explain the concepts with simple examples and then deep dives into complex DP problems. « less

This book is an interview resource created for designers, consultants, technical, solution, domain, enterprise, and chief architects to help them perform well in interview discussions and launch a successful career. The book begins by providing descriptions of architecture skills and competencies that cover the 12 key domains, including 350+ questions relating to these domains. The goal of this book is to cover all the core architectural domains. From an architect's perspective, it is impossible to revise or learn about all these key areas without a good reference guide – this book is the solution. It shares experiences, learning, insights, and proven methodologies that will benefit practitioners, SMEs, and aspirants in the long run. This book will help you tackle the NFR domain, which is a key aspect pertaining to architecting applications. It typically takes years to understand the core concepts, fundamentals, patterns, and principles related to architecture and designs. This book is a goldmine for the typical questions asked during an interview and will help prepare you for success! WHAT YOU WILL LEARN * Learn about IT strategies, NFR, methodologies, best practices, and frameworks to ace your interview * Get a holistic view of key concepts, design principles, and patterns related to evangelizing web and Java enterprise applications * Discover interview preparation guidelines through case studies * Use this as a reference guide for adopting best practices, standards, and design guidelines * Get a better understanding with 60+ diagrams depicting various scenarios, models, and methodologies * Benefit from coverage of all architecture domains including EA (Business, Data, Infrastructure, and Application), SA, integration, NFRs, security, and SOA, with extended coverage from IT strategies to the NFR domain ABOUT THE AUTHOR Sameer Paradkar is an enterprise architect with 15+ years of solid experience in the ICT industry which spans across consulting, systems integration, and product development.

Interview preparation guide
This book is about the usage of data structures and algorithms in computer programming. Designing an efficient algorithm to solve a computer science problem is a skill of Computer programmer. This is the skill which tech companies like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Adobe and many others are looking for more » in an interview. This book assumes that you are a C++ language developer. You are not an expert in C++ language, but you are well familiar with concepts of references, functions, arrays and recursion. In the start of this book, we will be revising the C++ language fundamentals that will be used throughout this book. We will be looking into some of the problems in arrays and recursion too. Then in the coming chapter, we will be looking into complexity analysis. Then will look into the various data structures and their algorithms. We will be looking into a linked list, stack, queue, trees, heap, hash table and graphs. We will be looking into sorting, searching techniques. Then we will be looking into algorithm analysis, we will be looking into brute force algorithms, greedy algorithms, divide and conquer algorithms, dynamic programming, reduction, and backtracking. In the end, we will be looking into the system design that will give a systematic approach for solving the design problems in an Interview. « less
