DIY: Serialize and Deserialize N-ary Tree

Solve the interview question "Serialize and Deserialize N-ary Tree" in this lesson.

Problem statement

You are given an N-ary tree. You have to make the following functions:

  • serialize(root: Node): This function takes the root node of the tree and serializes it into a string.
  • deserialize(data: String): This function takes the serialized string and converts it back into a tree.

There is no restriction on how your serialization and deserialization algorithm should work.
