Software Engineering Basics of XML Over the course of this article, we shall explore what XML is, its uses and advantages and then, basic syntax as well how XML documents are written. Let's begin!

Software Engineering Different types of API Protocols In this article, we shall briefly introduce APIs and then look at the various types of API protocols that are employed for their usage.

Algorithms Nearest smaller and greater numbers with same number of set bits In this article, we shall explore the various ways we can find the Nearest smaller and greater numbers with same number of set bits for given number.

Time Complexity Time and Space Complexity of Hash Table operations This article covers Time and Space Complexity of Hash Table (also known as Hash Map) operations for different operations like search, insert and delete for two variants of Hash Table that is Open and Closed Addressing.

Algorithms Alien Dictionary problem: Sorted order of characters In this article, we are given a sorted list of words in some alien dictionary. Based on the list, we have to generate the sorted order of characters in that alphabet. This problem can be solved using the idea of Topological Sort and Direct Acyclic Graphs.

Algorithms Kargerβs algorithm to find Minimum Cut In this article, we will explore how the Karger's algorithm works to find the minimum cut in a graph and its C++ implementation. This is a randomized algorithm based on Graphs.

Algorithms Hill Climbing Algorithm We will learn how the hill climbing algorithm works for local searching. This algorithm is a heuristic search algorithm, a concept prominently explored in areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

System Design Backpressure and Exponential Back-off to handle overloaded systems We explored how overloaded networks are handled using techniques such as applying back pressure and exponential back-off. Let us first begin with the reasons for overload and congestion, after which we will learn how to mitigate it.

Algorithms Applications of XOR operation We will begin with a brief introduction of what the XOR operation is, followed by its syntax in C++ and its applications such as memory-optimized doubly linked lists, swapping, XOR ciphers, Comparing two values, Gray codes and Partiy check.

Algorithms Longest Common Suffix Problem In this article, we will see how we can find the longest common suffix (i.e ending) that all the strings given to us have. We shall start with the brute-force approach for two strings. Following this, we will implement the Trie data structure to solve the problem for more than two strings.

Software Engineering 2D list in C++ STL (Defining and Sorting) In this article, we will begin with a brief recap of what lists are, followed by an introduction to 2-dimensional lists (2D list), where we shall explore creating and defining 2D lists in C++ STL and sorting them.
