There has been a constant discussion among Tier-II and Tier-III college students that getting placed in top product based companies is only for the elites. Indeed, the road to glory for such students is not an easy one, but definitely achievable – we are there to help you with it. CodeChef’s collaboration with Unacademy last year has paved a whole new path of opportunities for budding programmers and learners, and we are here to share those with you. With free live classes, known as Special Classes and Micro-Courses, we give you the very best to stand out from the crowd. 

Every week, a host of Live Classes is happening on the Unacademy Platform under the Learn Competitive Programming with CodeChef category. Here we will be highlighting some of those popular classes that happened on the platform in the last seven days.  

Classes that bring out the best in you!

Dec 25, 2020 – Having doubts about the linked list? The linked list has been an essential part of DSA, allowing you to solve several intricate problems with ease. Riya Bansal’s micro-course will help you sort out all of your queries. With over thousands of minutes of watch time, the video lecture will help you ace linked list based problems. The discussed problems will be important from the perspective of interview preparation. Riya Bansal has over 551K watch minutes and 1K followers. She has been a constant source of knowledge and inspiration for students across the programming community. 

Dec 27, 2020 – Backtracking has undoubtedly been one of those topics that keep the coders perplexed. Backtracking is an important tool for solving constraint satisfaction problems, such as crosswords, verbal arithmetic, Sudoku, and many other puzzles. With Sanket Singh’s course on backtracking, this won’t be the case anymore. Sanket Singh has been the number one educator in competitive programming with over 1 million watch minutes. His classes and micro-courses have received excellent reviews from the students, and he continues to grow his community of learners. 

Dec 28, 2020 – Graphs have always been a very essential part of programming and it certainly has also been one of the trickiest topics. With so many terminologies and basic traversal algorithms, graphs are a very important topic during job interviews. Himanshu Singh’s micro-course on graphs will help you not only in understanding the topic but will also help you in implementing it. With Himanshu being one of the ICPC World Finalist 2020, he has the experience in algorithmic programming to provide you with nothing but the best.

Dec 28, 2020 – Individual free classes help you to tackle specific small topics. If you have trouble understanding primitive and discrete roots, then Nishchay Minwani’s class is certainly the one that you should try out. Here he discusses the primitive root, which is a generator for numbers in modulus m. This value is used very often in many problems surrounding modulo m operations. 

With immense experience in the field of programming, these educators have cracked some of the most challenging coding interviews. Their talent has allowed them to work with the best technical teams in the world. They have also made it to the final rounds of some of the world’s most coveted coding competitions, like ICPC and IOI. 

Interactive live sessions have allowed the students to clear their doubts as soon as they have them. These micro-courses and individual classes are a great way to get started in the world of competitive programming. Already hundreds of students benefit from it, and now it’s your turn to make the best out of this opportunity.

The journey demands dedication and hard work, but if you are motivated and go hand in hand with us, any summit is scalable. We are doing our bit by providing the students with all the necessary resources. It’s your time to make the best use of them.
