Competitive Programming - Beginner - B16
Solving a problem is meaningless if you can't convert it to a workable code in a contest that covers all the edge cases. Solving a problem, writing its code in an efficient language is a must for a problem solver. And currently, the fastest known coding language for a competitive programmer is undoubtedly C++. We will go through each C++ concepts needed for a competitive programmer in order to ace in contests and problem solving.

Who Can Join This Course?

Good logic sense. Familiarity with at least one programming language will even boost your learning, but it is not mandatory.

As a very beginner I decided to do the course (Competitive Programming). It was a prosperous experience for me with 'Dev Skill'. I am well benefited with the course as a beginner and for this i am thankful to 'Dev Skill'. Specially i want to tell about our respectful teacher Sharif Minhazul Islam. He was with us throughout the course with a very helpful behavior. He tried to discuss in details even the small things. That was very helpful to build a clear concept in each step. His teaching method was very efficient and effective. There was a great consistency in his teaching method too. Almost it was a great work. Thank you.

The instructor, Sharif Minhazul, was outstanding. He discussed the topic very clearly and in depth. Give advice on what he learned about her learning journey. He told us how to think outside the box. Finally, he was a humble person; he answered every question, even if the question was less important, and he was very supportive.
