Hello Codeforces Community , this is CodeNCode.

I have created a course for basic algorithms and teaching binary search in there as beginning.Just as I was thinking what next problem I should take to teach how beautiful this concept is , I saw Problem B from education round 87.

so here is the list of lectures added till now.


PS : Of course I will add more problems to this list (problems like aggressive cows from spoj)

PS1 : for pointing out any mistake of mine / suggestion please let me know in the comments.

Thank you for your valuable time. CodeNCode out.

 » 7 weeks ago, # |   +10 Hey, while I respect you and like your videos, CodeForces is not a place to advertise your videos. Please stick to Linkedin/Quora. Let the blogs be clean and not cluttered (like the discuss section on CodeChef), please try to understand.
•  » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ |   +9 I respect your concern but try to understand this , there were more than 2000 programmers who were not able to solve this educational round 87 B problem , which means they didn't knew binary search can be used to solve this problem.there are many students who do not know the same. I am not only just making an editorial for this problem but a whole course so that they know how to apply it in any problem solvable using BS.I do not understand how writing an article for BS will be considered as help for others while making a video course is considered cluttering.I have many courses including graph theory , Number theory etc. creating 1 blog here for each course will make it cluttered?
•  » » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   0 There are already many great tutorials on CF on Binary Search, if you want to genuinely help people, link those CF blogs as well. My concern is not with the nature of how you're doing it, but the influence it will have on other people. Soon everyone will start posting links to their YouTube channels and their blogs. Don't you think repetition of information by everyone would create clutter? Would you like to see 5 blogs on Binary Search after every contest on the CF blogs list? Advertise your channel as much as you can on other platforms and let the YouTube algorithm do it's job. This is a genuine concern for the platform and not related to you specifically. Thank You.

I saw this post and went to see the video and learnt how binary search can also be used to solve this problem. I only knew a 2 pointer approach to this problem earlier. There are very few people making quality educational content and he is one of them. Please don't demotivate such people by writing such comments. You are not doing any good to the programming community and he is, so please stop causing hinderance.
•  » » » » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ |   0 There is nothing wrong with advertising educational content, nor have I said that. If you had actually read my comments, you wouldn't have said that.
 » 7 weeks ago, # |   -12 Please stop spamming, this is not your Linkedin or Quora. Firstly rarely will anyone want to see a video on B, given that it has 7k+ submissions. I have been noticing you, you previously used to make videos on Codechef, since Codechef has limited number of contests, you started aiming for views at Codeforces, and started making this shit B tutorials. If you want to help the community, make something which people actually want, like C D E and so on, because those are the stepping stones. Lastly please edit your videos, many a times, you stammer, those stuffs can be edited and trimmed out.
•  » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ |   0 I already have made course which are helpful to many including Mo's algorithm , Mo's algorithm on tree , graph theory and so on.I do not only aim for contest I create complete course , just checkout the channel completely.
•  » » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ |   0 Learn to take constructive criticism. :) It will help you improve.
•  » » » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ |   0 Sorry for that , i will learn with time.Thanks for video editing suggestion.Just wanted to clarify i try to make videos which are helpful for others like the Courses i made.I solved E , may be I make video on that.
•  » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ |   0 and this blog is not just for editorial for problem B , this is to teach those who could not solve B , how binary search is not just a technique to search element in a sorted array.
•  » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ |   0 If you want to call people out, do it respectfully. No need to go on a personal attack. Even I do not agree with the spamming, but this is not the way to do it.
•  » » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   0 What did i said was personal? I did not remember anything i said was personal. If you think there was a personal attack i apologize for that , you can mention that part i will delet or change it. (I actually do not know whether your reply is for me or not , sprry for that not very familiar with codeforces blogs)

•  » » » 7 weeks ago, # ^ |   0 @Clickbait bro can u tell me what is the problem you are facing if he makes videos for problems . it's because of cf blogs i came to know about this guy. great work man keep doing.
 » 7 weeks ago, # |   0 Thank you very much.Actually i was looking for different use of binary search for a few days. This is just what i wanted. Keep up the good work bro.
 » 8 days ago, # |   0 @kazama460 you are really doing a great job..i really learned a lot from your video..your explanation through concept and solving problem related to it consequently helped me a lot to improved and give effort..keep up the good work.. you are really doing an awesome and inspiring job..And you are really an admiring person..just keep up doing the great job your are doing..It help is a lot
