re: Are algorithms, complexity & data structures still relevant? VIEW POST


I'd argue they've been part of the interview process because they're integral to effective programming. Sure, you might not need to implement a doubly-linked list on the job, but you should certainly know how it works under the hood and what the pros and cons of using it are. I don't think any part of that knowledge has become any less relevant.


Hi Ben and thanks for reaching out!

Whilst I agree with you about the importance of knowing this topic, I'm trying to understand why the implementation of this knowledge during 45-60 minutes interviews is this important. I'm talking about problems as egg drop puzzle or knapsack problem etc. because this kind of situations may (very) rarely occur in real life apps.
