COMS 4995 From Algorithm to Development | Brian Borowski

Prerequisites: (COMS W3134 or COMS W3137), COMS W3157 recommended

Description: From Algorithmic Thinking to Development focuses on refining problem-solving and coding skills so that students can devise solutions to problems that are frequently used in interviews for software engineering positions. The selected problems fall under the domains of brute-force, hashing, sorting, transform-and-conquer, greedy, and dynamic programming and are found on various online judges, including HackerRank, LeetCode, and SPOJ. Python, Java, C, and C++ are used to implement solutions. While the instructor will provide short lectures and code walk-throughs to help the class, students will learn primarily through experimentation, working in small teams, and sharing ideas. At the end of the semester, each team will select and solve a problem from an online judge and present their solutions to the class.
