LeetCode - Some of the problem solutions are going above my head!!
I have solved some of the most complex problems in back end applications. I am good at writing compact, generic and extensible code with object oriented concepts in mind and developing multi tier applications.
So, I am not such a bad engineer or brilliant engineer. I know how to get the job done as an IC.
But still, some of the LeetCode problems are going way above my head. No matter how much time I spend I don't come up with a right solution myself. LC so far is just 40+. Though I look at the solution for some of the LC problems I don't quite fully understand it.
I tried debugging the solution too.
What will you do if you don't understand the solution? Do you ask your friends for help? Should I have to solve more problems so I understand the pattern of solutions to different problems?
PS: I am just a contractor at Apple.
