Hi Daniel Zingaro,

Welcome to the ranch!

I am trying hard to get some edge in competitive programming for some time. Will this book be helpful in understanding and deploying the best algorithmic strategy?

Thanks

Hi,

Thank you. Happy to be here!

... this depends on your current competitive programming level. If you've been doing competitive programming for a few years then you probably already know most of the material in the book. Or if you've already read a full-on competitive programming book, then there's probably not much new here.

But if you want to get started with competitive programming, or if the other competitive programming books are too fast/intense (for now -- they eventually won't be), or you want a hand-picked set of competitive programming problems worth your time, then I think my book could serve.

I'd love to write a book one day targeted more at advanced competitive programming. Competitive programmers have so many tricks that don't show up in more mainstream books. Some of them are in Algorithmic Thinking, but there's a whole world of stuff out there...

Dan

Thanks Daniel Zingaro, looking forward to it. Good luck!
