It is Wednesday morning and the cleaning crew is at our place making lots of noise. Typically they show up on Fridays but due to personal issues they requested to move the appointment. They do an excellent job. If you live in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul and are in need of a good cleaning service, please let me know. I will pass your information so you can get in touch with them or vice versa. I value privacy. Continue reading “Implement Trie (Prefix Tree)”

I did so and Tries came up as an initial candidate. I wrote a blog about it. I tend to be quite passionate with my work and computer science in general. I went and spent some time solving a challenge All Domains -> Data Structures- > Trie -> Contacts on HackerRank (https://www.hackerrank.com/challenges/contacts). Continue reading “Contacts with Trie”
