What is Project Euler and Who are the problems aimed at?

According to the post on the official website, Project Euler is a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that will require more than just mathematical insights to solve.

Computer science and mathematics go hand-in-hand in the area of computing and information technology.

As a computer scientist or software engineer, knowledge of mathematics helps you arrive at an elegant and efficient method of solving a problem.

However, having good computer and programming skills is required to apply those methods and actually solve most problems related to computing and technology.

Project Euler, created in 2001 by Colin Hughes, is named after Leonhard Euler, a Swiss mathematician, logician, and engineer who made important and influential discoveries in many branches of mathematics.

The website is designed as a platform dedicated to a series of computational problems intended to be solved with computer and programming skills.

Since its creation, Project Euler has gained notability and popularity worldwide and attracts adults and students interested in mathematics and computer programming.

It includes over 700 problems, with a new one added once every one or two weeks.

Problems are of varying difficulty, but each is solvable in less than a minute of CPU time using an efficient algorithm on a modestly powered computer.

According to the official post, the motivation for starting Project Euler, and its continuation, is to provide a platform for the inquiring mind to delve into unfamiliar areas and learn new concepts in a fun and recreational context.

It's no wonder that most tech organizations test Job applicants on their ability to efficiently tackle some of the problems on Project Euler.

As a matter of fact, regular practice, knowledge, and understanding of how to tackle and solve the problems in Project Euler sharpens your mind and prepares you for any coding job interview and job recruitment process.

Practicing these problems may likely give you an edge over other job applicants in the pursuit of a tech career.

To build a really good profile and increase your chances of being shortlisted and possibly hired, you should have a strong knowledge of how to solve problems in Project Euler.

A fresh job applicant may not necessarily have all the skills and knowledge of programming required to work at a company in advance, but a mastery of how to solve these problems in any programming language you are most comfortable with will give you an edge.

Actually, you should know all that is required before the job interview and recruitment process.

Before then, you should have built a strong online portfolio on Github and LinkedIn.

When your Github and LinkedIn Profile is really good, job recruiters may connect with you directly on LinkedIn or via email.

At Sikademy, Archangel believes that the following three things are very important for job candidates to keep in mind:

  • Knowledge.

    We always tell job applicants and developers that knowledge is the key to anything and to get knowledge, you have to learn. It is not an easy feat, you will have to work hard to gain the right knowledge. Knowledge comes to those who crave it. In fact, lifelong learning and accessibility to knowledge is the core vision of Sikademy.

  • Focus.

    Focus is required to pull off whatever you set your mind to do. For instance, Archangel's focus is to grow Sikademy to become one of the big tech companies and help developers, students, and other knowledge enthusiasts learn and gain knowledge to achieve their dreams. Similarly, if your focus is acing a Java programming language job interview, focus on it, and make it happen. We bet you will achieve it.

  • Persistence

    Persistence is all about striving to achieve something despite obstacles or repeated failures. To achieve a specific goal, oftentimes, one has to be able to persevere, to press on, despite repeated failures and obstacles.

How do I go about Training for job interviews on Sikademy?

These Project Euler problems are organized into levels of difficulty ranging across technical, straight-forward, and some brainstorming questions.

These questions do not belong to Sikademy and have been curated from the official project Euler website.

The most ideal approach to solving these project Euler problems is to focus on the data provided while developing a structured approach.

Most importantly, you must be able to explain your approach and make it very efficient to utilize as little CPU time as possible.

Tips for Getting the Most out of Project Euler Problems and Solutions for Job Training on Sikademy

  • Study and attempt each question carefully before viewing the correct answer.

  • Do not memorize the program, questions, or answers, rather, understand the concept and approach used in solving each problem. That way, when the question is asked in a different format, you will be able to answer easily.

  • Study at your own pace. Do not try to rush through the training. Remember, what matters most is your ability to analyze and think critically. The key is not in the completion of each activity, but the knowledge gained in the process of learning. So, take a step back and relax a bit when you feel tired or overwhelmed and come back to it.

  • When you perform poorly in live quizzes and mock tests, do not give up or be discouraged. Failure is part of the learning process. Simply dust it off and try again, again, and again until you succeed entirely on your standard. On the other hand, when you perform exceptionally well, we recommend you enjoy the moment and strongly advise you to continue practicing and learning.

  • It is important to know that despite giving our solutions to the programs, you can do things differently. If the question is theoretical or technical, you may not always be wrong and we may not always be right. With this in mind, if you strongly feel that your answer is correct, do not hesitate to let us know and we will instantly review and update it as soon as possible.

  • Report errors found in questions and/or answers when encountered. Not only will this be beneficial to us in debugging our system, but it will also help us serve you better by providing correct results especially during the mock test and live quizzes on Sikademy.

  • Do not forget to recommend these project Euler problems and solutions for job interviews and recruitment to others if it helps you.

  • Feel free to reach out to us if you run into any technical issues or have a question about these job interview preparation resources. We will get back to you as soon as we receive it.

Ready to start your job recruitment training and job interview preparation exercise?

I hope this project Euler problems and solutions will help you in preparing for a Job Interview and Recruitment or just sharpen your mind.

Please spread the word and share this with others who may need it!

Keep this in mind: If you are in the business of making something, do the best you can. All progress towards success takes place outside the comfort zone. Being successful in whatever you do takes one thing: pertinacity.

Good luck and Happy Learning :)

From Archangel and the Sikademy Team.
