Smart / OKR
- Goal: prepare for contests. Pass 50->75->100% of contest problems in time
- Improve python skills.
- Improve understanding of common algorithms and data structures.
Measurable: How will we know that change has occurred?
- solve top 100 questions that cover common algorithms and data structures.
- participate in LeetCode contest, solve 50%+ problems in time.
Relevant: Is it possible to achieve this objective?
- achievable with practice.
- improve skills in solving business problems more efficiently, quickly, understandable.
Time-Bound: When will this objective be accomplished?
- 1-2 hours a day, 5-6 days a week, ~5 problems a week
- first contest after 20% problems pass.
- 20 weeks from start.
- Summarize results on 28 Feb 2023
OKR + roadmap
- pass 20 problems: (4 weeks, 12 Nov 2022)
- Ability to define algorithm/idea of solving problem.
- participate in contest, solve minimum 1-2 problems in time.
- next participate in contest/solve contest tasks every week:
- solve minimum 1-2 problems.
- fix results, correct next goal keys if I go ahead.
- pass 40 problems: (10 Dec 2022)
- participate in contest, solve minimum 2 problems in time.
- after 50 problems have a rest one week. (24 Dec 2022)
- pass 70 problems: (28 Jan 2023)
- solve next 10 medium problems without hints effectively.
- 80-100 problems: (28 Feb 2023)
- have understanding in which topics I have gaps.
- emphasize problem solving on these topics in addition to the tasks on the list.
- Sum up results (28 Feb 2023)
- open task
- first thoughts
1510 minutes on coding/drawing/understanding algo
- finished or not, read hints
- spend 10 minutes on fixing if needed
- read solution, discussions
- if there is a new algo, read theory the rest of first hour, practice
- code from scratch with comments/code snippets
- repeat 7-9 until tests pass
to observe any change in python use nodemon npm package
npm i -g nodemon
run python file:
nodemon --exec python p.py
from typing import List class Solution: def twoSum(self, nums: List[int], target: int) -> List[int]: return 1 nums = [1,2,3] target = 5 s = Solution() res = s.twoSum(nums, target) print(res)
leetcode Top 100 Interview Questions
List of problems cis mutable. Will take first not solved until all first top 100 problems are solved. It can take + ~5-15 problems
