Course Overview

This course teaches bit manipulation, a powerful technique to enhance algorithmic and problem-solving skills. It is a critical topic for those preparing for coding interviews for top tech companies, startups and industry leaders. Competitive programmers can take full advantage of this course by running most of the bit-related problems in O(1) complexity. The course will begin by educating you about the number system and its representation, decimal and binary, followed by the six bitwise operators: AND, OR,...

What You'll Learn

Master problem-solving that involves bit manipulation.

Master the bit manipulation, which allows you to organize all inputs in binary representation at the memory levels.

Master how the bit-level operations are computed. Understand that bit-level operations are based on all the arithmetic operations built into all languages.

Solve problems that are commonly asked in coding interviews related to bit manipulation.

These bit tricks help in competitive programming in running algorithms mostly in O(1) time.

Solutions are available in 5 different languages.
