Kotlin coding challenges

This repository contains a set of programming challenges that are solved using the Kotlin language (hints, solutions tests and useful links are here as well). The purpose of this repository is to help you to practice coding and develop strong problem-solving skills. This will help you to become a better programmer and improve your chance of getting a new job by passing whiteboard coding interviews.

Challenge structure

Each challenge is located in separate package and it contains 3 main files (screen):

  • desc.md - the task description.
  • desc.kt - an empty method/class where challenge should be solved. This file also contains set of test and ocasionally helper methods. JUnit tests which verify that task was solved correctly.
  • solution.kt - a file containing one or more solutions.

Keep in mind that each challenge will usually have more than one solution. Even simple challenges like String reversal can be solved in 10 different ways. Usually, we compare various solutions using (Big O notation) to determine space/time complexity and we look at code readability.

How do I start?

  1. Install IntelliJ IDEA
  2. Import project by using IntelliJ IDEA menu: File | New | Project From Version Control | Git
  3. Choose a challenge and code the solution
  4. Run the tests to verify your solution

Let's solve some challenges

Challenges below are segregated by different difficulties. The repository also contains challenges grouped by problem type.

Some challenges may contain a reference to other challenges that should be solved before to have a better understanding of the problem. To succeed you need to practice often, repeat the same challenges multiple times and be persistent over time. Take your time before you take a look at the presented solution. Good luck!

Challanges

  • GeeksForGeeks - large and nicely segregated set of problems.
  • HackerRank - large set of problems and additional interview problems for business.
  • TopCoder - platforms for competitive programming online.
  • Project Euler - more complex challenges, usually related to mathematics. The site already contains 600+ problems and a new code challenge is available very week or two. You will probably have to discuss the problem with the community because solutions are not on the website.
  • Advent of code - one month of various programing problems released daily at the end of the year. Fortunately archive of past events is still there.
  • CoderByte - 200+ challenges, data structures / algorithms / company interview problems segregated by difficulty. Unfortunately most of them are only available for premium users. Premium gives you access to premium step-by-step solutions and user solutions.
  • CodeChef - contains set of programming problems segregated by difficulty.
  • LeetCode - data structures / algorithms / company interview problems segregated by difficulty.
  • Code Forces - list of programming challenges is smaller than other websites, but you will still have plenty of problems to solve.
  • Spoj - list of programming challenges is smaller than other websites, but you will still have plenty of problems to solve.
  • Exercism - coding challenge website that offers 3100+ challenges spanning 52 different programming languages.

Game challanges

  • CodeWars - solve visuial challanges by writing code for the.
  • CodinGame - solve visuial challanges by writing code for the.

Websites

  • Hiring without whiteboards - listing of companies (or teams) that don't do "whiteboard" interviews.
  • VisuAlgo - visualizes data structures and algorithms through animations algorithms.
  • Data structures explained - description of various data structures.
  • Sorting algorithms animations - visually compares most popular sorting algorithms using animations.
  • Big-O Reference - summarizes the complexities in terms of space and time (Big-O) of the most important algorithms and operations in common data structures.
  • Big-O poster - time/space complexity poster to print ant put on the wall.
  • Big-O Cheat Sheet - covers the space and time Big-O complexities of common algorithms.
