I solved this problem correctly and explained what I did , also during writing each line I was explaining why I am writing it. But still no next round . Very useless .... I suggest do not spend your energy for this dead old company. Moins

Could you please share the leetcode difficulty of the problems asked during the interview? Moins

The key in these questions is to cover the fundamentals, and be ready for the back-and-forth with the interviewer. Might be worth doing a mock interview with one of the Oracle or ex-Oracle Principal Software Engineer experts on Prepfully? They give real-world practice and guidance, which is pretty helpful. prepfully.com/practice-interviews Moins

LC Medium or Hard?

Through questions like this, interviewers are mostly trying to test your skillset (and its relevance to the role) as robustly as possible, so be prepared for multiple offshoots and followups. It could be a useful exercise to do mocks with friends or colleagues in Palo Alto Networks to get a real sense of what the interview is actually like. Alternatively Prepfully has a ton of Palo Alto Networks Principal Software Engineer experts who provide mock interviews for a pretty reasonable amount. prepfully.com/practice-interviews Moins

Apigee

Print unique strings in a array.

2 réponses

Used HashSet to keep track of string that were already seen.

1) Build a Trie and just then just walk and print it then... 2) Like above, use hash, however, this is challenging if you can have unbounded string... as definition of string.... char-sequence-until-null so potential input can one huge sequence.... if it is known that string can be resonably 256 char long at max and all english letter then you can make hash function.
