Semal10's blog

AlgoShots is very effective platform for beginners. AlgoShots has basically 2 sections :

Learning :- Where you can grasp crystal clear concepts of Algorithms and Data-Structure from basic to Advanced (We will upload more algorithms soon) . Recommended for those who lack basic concepts from beginning. This section even contains pics, gifs to enhance the comprehensive concepts.

Practice : There is no shortcut to practice. You would have probably heard this many times but it is the reality, practice indeed improve your implementation skills along with basic DSA and problem solving skills. So this section contains handpicked questions from codeforces (the best platform for competitive programming) from 800 to 2000 rating with detailed explanation for the same. It even contains pics, gifs, even video explanation wherever it was necessary to enhance the comprehension.

We have selected 25 questions of rating 800 to 1000. Since, we believe 25 questions are more than enough as they are pretty straightforward. And we have approximately 50 problems (some questions are yet to be framed, stay tuned for the same) each from rating 1100 to 2000.

We have even linked our site with Codeforces for better results. If you want to keep a track of your progress, enter the Codeforces Handle at the top inside Practice Section and upon solving the problems, those cards will turn green.

Already many users are practicing daily from this platform. I hope you guys take the benefit to the its zenith and may it be helpful for you.

P. S :- A lot of efforts were made in order to help the community. We are just 2.5 months old, looking forward to help the community even more in the near future.

Don't take my word for it, check it out yourself : AlgoShots

Yeah, I know the effort behind it. Its no surprise that one can understand the solution and code in one go in AlgoShots website. I do recommend to have a go to the website, it would really be helpful if you want to ace competitive programming.

Is it possible to add the link of practice problem for each topic? Suppose someone has just learnt topological sort. As there is no tag available for topological sort in codeforces, so it will be hard to find a problem regarding this topic from your website.

Very good initiative. Lot of improvements I can watch in myself after joining AlgoShots.

I will say it again. Please finally slow down and polish your articles. An example terrible paragraph about Dijkstra:

It is a technique to reach the required destination , we call here destination as nodes since we represent it through graph, with the shortest possible path. We use weighted graph for its implementation. Consider this weight as distance to that node or destination.

It's cool that you want to help people but you still rush things, and thus get quality worse than average resources out there. And don't be afraid to just provide a link to existing tutorial, see the recent USACO guide https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/80438

I provided more feedback in your previous blog but the blog was then removed, I think.

    We are always open to feedback, thanks for providing one.

    The thing is that we want help the community out there, we are not rushing things, it's just that coders out there are seeking for the right material to get started with and a lot requests were made by people to launch this course by earliest means. Still it took out whole lot more time to make it as perfect as possible from our side. Every article is double checked by the authorities and beginner coders out there are finding it beneficial.

    That's just it for us. All our hard work will pay off when we see people finding this useful and to see them rise, it really makes us happy.

    Noone has any idea how much efforts our team made in order to help the community, day and night for few months. We just hope that programmers out there find this helpful even if its just a little bit!

    P.S :- Erichtto, you are inspirational for many programmers out there! We are grateful to receive your feedback.

Is there a way to find the acceptable "problem tags" in Codeforces? Those can be used to search in the website.

Thanks for the platform. This might be useful as like as A2oj. Thanks again <3

thank you very much. Is there any way in which I can hide tags for problems??

There are a few suggestions: I wasn't able to see the problems which I did in a mashup in green colour. So you could add a possibility of manually doing it or automate that for gyms. Also you could add a feature to add multiple handles and showing the number of them who did a problem below it, so that we could design mashups for our friends. Something like sorting by lists in codeforces.
