Getting started with Competitive Programming - Build your algorithm skills

Aug 21, 2018

I started Competitive Programming as soon as I got into college, around 2014. And I seriously continued with CP till 2015. My career was only for a year. But I learned a lot during that time since it was my #1 priority. Before we go any further, you might be thinking why I left CP. This was because I got interested in open source back then, and creating cool GitHub projects became my new hobby.

Why you should do Competitive Programming, even if a little

Aug 16, 2018

I first started Competitive Programming (CP) in the first year of undergrad college. I should have started sooner. CP has played an important role in my career so far. In fact, it was the major reason I got the freelance contract (Toptal) that I am doing. Simply speaking, being good in Competitive or Sports Programming allowed me to outrank other programmers by a large margin. So yes, CP is important.
