Hello all! Still working my way through the wild world of algorithms and data structures. Lately I’ve been grinding on LeetCode almost everyday trying to solve easy level problems but even the easy problems can be very hard. Coming from a bootcamp, problem solving isn’t really something that’s fully taught but it’s kind of difficult to teach while also teaching how to build things. Through doing algorithmic problems is where I’m picking up the skill, very so slowly but making progress. One of the things I’m recognizing though is some problems can be solved with specific techniques. One of these techniques that I’m working on mastering is the sliding window. The way this technique works is moving through a subset of elements in a array or string, either expanding or shrinking that subset until a condition is satisfied.
