Alex7's blog

By Alex7, history, 4 years ago, In English,

So I just made this video, a tutorial for Tarjan's algorithm for finding bridges.

It's less than 6 mins long.

This video is an experiment, I tried a lot of new things and I'm waiting to see if you guys like it or not. I will continue to do my step by step videos, this might be a different series.

I always wondered why there aren't many channels about Competitive Programming. (Especially in English). I'm pretty sure any experienced coder setting up one would get him many views.

Keep adding more videos. Good job!

    Well, there are plenty of video lectures (from open courses) for algorithms and data structures.

      I didn't see those, but I know that there are many lectures about data structures for academic purposes. They are sometimes useful, but there aren't many videos explaining things specially for competitive programming.

        Yes, you are absolutely right. Sometimes finding good resources in text is already hard enough, but these open courses help more or less.

        I'd say this is partly due to the competitive nature of the scene. Plus practice and schoolwork take up a significant amount of time.

        I highly support Alex7 's initiative. The scene is really getting better and better with all of you nice people :)

wow this is very helpful ! in addition to the fact that there is almost no good competitive programming channel on youtube.. I'm still a newbie at graph theory and I got it right away.. thank you so much for the wonderful tutorial :)

    Wow! I'm actually surprised that it's clear. Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it a lot :D

Can you please make tutorials on Tarjan SCC algorithm and maximum flow?

Thank you for your effort!

What I like about your video — Its very interesting to watch, because its short and to the point, you explained how to think it up from basic dfs, and the music too :) can you post a link to the music?

Please keep making such videos, they are great ice-breakers before picking up text resources to understand a new concept :)

    This is one of the links. Youtube actually provides a library of open music/ sounds for video creators (I got it from there).

if you do a video about weird maximum flow/min cut applications it would be really awesome !

    I'm really sorry but flows aren't my strong suit. I won't do any flow videos in the near future. At least till I get better at it. I've never really solved any flow problem before :D .

Nice one , but I think it would be better if you add some problems about this algorithm.
