The Algorithm Design Manual

September 6, 2015

While I was re-reading Steve Yegge’s post about getting that job at Google, I stumbled upon two great pieces of advice. The first one was to bring your own thin markers, because your density of code on the whiteboard will be bigger.

The second one was to start reading Steven Skiena’s book, The Algorithm Design Manual. So, in the bus on my trip from my hometown to Bucharest, I started lecturing it, without solving the problems. More like a story book.

I think I like it more than CTCI because the code is in C++ and there is a bigger focus on implementations.
