I have written a blog post on how to solve Facebook Hacker Cup Round 1 problem Autocomplete using a trie. This is a beginner level article and is meant for those who want to know what a trie is and how to use it in programming problems.

Here's the link: http://blog.anirudhrb.com/2015/02/introduction-to-tries-through-facebook.html

Enjoy!

Thanks. For a log time I was looking for a good and easy-undersandable topic in tries.

        A beginner would probably find it interesting and upvote the post. A non-beginner, on the other hand, would find it boring and downvote it.
