WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE AT THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND WORKSHOP

Technical session:
Minimum Steps to 1 – a dynamic programming problem that will take 1 hour to walk through including Q&A. We’ll be walking through both top-down (memoization) and bottom-up (tabulation approaches). We’ll be breaking down the problem on a tablet so access to a projector would be ideal. This session will be led by Ron Tsui our CTO.

Interview session:
Reverse Recruiting – a networking session that breaks down cold outreach to technical recruiters to help secure interviews that will take 1 hour to walk through including Q&A. This session will be led by Joshua Encarnacion our CEO.
