Hey guys!

I've started a YouTube channel called "Algorithms Conquered". I uploaded a video on segment trees to see how it goes. I am thinking of uploading videos on problems on segment trees and different ways in which we can use segment trees and well as educational dynamic programming problems (not classic problems but problems which will improve your understanding of dp in general).

I'd appreciate if you can check it out :)

Also, if you have any video ideas or want to learn something do let me know in the comments!

This is a great video, I really enjoyed it! I'll recommend it to people I know if they ask for segment tree help.

Good luck with your other videos! I'm excited to watch your videos on educational DP problems.

        I did, yes. What's wrong with recommending the video on both platforms?

          No there is nothing wrong, please accept my apologies for that comment, I hope you finally get to learn some dp from his videos. Happy learning!.

            Why are you so toxic? Is it that hard being nice to others?

            (Also if you want to criticize, give constructive criticism)

      I don't see how rating is involved in this. socho was simply recommending the video and/or giving an assurance about its quality. If you have feedback or suggestions to say about arujbansal 's video, you're free to comment. There's no reason to be toxic about the support he is getting for his contribution over here.

      If you see his previous blogs, you can also see how he's already provided good explanations on other topics.

You yourself seem to be struggling with easy problems why do you think that you can contribute enough to the community?

    Let me just clarify, I didn't start this channel because I want to become popular or get subscribers or anything. I'm just trying it out since I think I will be fun. As for "contributing enough to the community", if my videos don't help you that's alright. No one is telling you or forcing you to watch them.

    Just because I'm low rated/green on codeforces doesn't mean that I don't understand what I'm talking about. I'm not going to try to make videos on something that I don't understand.

      "I'm just trying it out since I think I will be fun". Sorry, I was mistaken, I thought you had plans of delivering some relevant stuff to the community. It's perfectly fine if it's only for your fun, best of luck buddy 👍 .

        is it not possible to have fun while giving back to the community? surely people wouldn't make educational content if they didn't enjoy producing it

    Thanks for your valuable feedback. As someone who is not struggling with easy problems like yourself, I hope people learn to think more before they think about contributing "enough" to the community. For example, by posting relevant memes on blogs about an explanation of something irrelevant.

      Well, when did I say that I am interested in contributing to the community? Also, I never said that I don't struggle with easy problems, and finally, it was just a general query where I only asked what was the point of making this channel? (I got my answer lol), that's it. I don't understand why are you guys getting so infuriated

        All the guys you see commenting here and on Codechef are his friends from a cp discord(galencolin-everule) , thats why they are so harsh in defending him no matter if the content/audio quality of video is shit.

        About all the downvotes,his whole team of friends(25 something) collectively downvote you and upvote the supporting comments.

        I realized it soon enough when I saw a master commenting that he looks forward to learn DP from a pupil's youtube video. It doesn't take a big brqin to understand whats going on.

          To be honest, it has nothing to do with CP. fireblaze777's comment is unwarranted regardless of video quality. It's just a level of basic respect for other humans that we should all have, and clearly the downvotes agree that the comment was disgusting, given that it's the most heavily voted comment on the blog.

              I will highlight.

              You yourself seem to be struggling with easy problems why do you think that you can contribute enough to the community?

              In fact, some people who are less rated than me for example can explain way better than me. I am bad at explaining to people so, this comment is a bit disrespecting compared to that one:

              "I'm just trying it out since I think I will be fun". Sorry, I was mistaken, I thought you had plans of delivering some relevant stuff to the community. It's perfectly fine if it's only for your fun, best of luck buddy .

              That comment is just too rude. The meaning of that comment that you are claiming that he will not post CP content and you are claiming that he is making that youtube channel mainly for fun and not to share his knowledge/educate people. So as if you are describing him in an indirect way that he is selfish or useless.

I hope you are capable enough to read that he himself wrote that he has made this channel for fun. Also, I think I've had enough of downvotes, I apologize for my comments, I highly encourage you to go and learn some basic dp from his videos. Happy learning! :) (btw I never asked you to interpret my comments:) )

                  I think because of your comments the channel got more attention than it would have.

                  This does NOT mean I support what you said though.

          Well it is their wish to support their friends. Wouldn't you support him if he was your friend as well? And to fireblaze777- Your comment is too harsh. It looks more of mocking than suggestion. You could have said it in a better way.

          There is a reason why he is a master and you and me are cyans. :)

Please make some videos on easier topics too (like Dp, Graphs, Number Theory, Combinatorics etc.). Because topics like segment trees are way over my head.

    That's why you should learn otherwise why would you learn something that is already known to you?

      I don't think it will be good for me as Segment trees never appears in Div 2 C and I can't even solve a Div 2 C. Div 2 C requires good problem solving skill, not the knowledge of an advance DS like Segment Tree.

      I think this should be true for you too.

awesome effort, could you make videos on acutal ALGOrithms instead of DATA structures like segment trees, BIT etc because we have enough of those available (although i appreaciate the stuff). By actual algorithms I mean combinatorics , matrix exponentiation etc.
