We define a harmonious array as an array where the difference between its maximum value and its minimum value is

exactly`1`

.Given an integer array

`nums`

, returnthe length of its longest harmonious subsequence among all its possible subsequences.A

subsequenceof array is a sequence that can be derived from the array by deleting some or no elements without changing the order of the remaining elements.

`1 <= nums.length <= 2 * 10^4`

`-10^9 <= nums[i] <= 10^9`

Given two strings

`and`

A`of lowercase letters, return`

B

trueif you can swap two letters in

Aso the result is equal to

B, otherwise, return

false.Swapping letters is defined as taking two indices

`and`

i`(0-indexed) such that`

j`and swapping the characters at`

i != j`and`

A[i]`. For example, swapping at indices`

A[j]`and`

0`in`

"abcd"`.`

"cbad"

`0 <= A.length <= 20000`

`0 <= B.length <= 20000`

`A`

and`B`

consist of lowercase letters.

Given

`head`

, the head of a linked list, determine if the linked list has a cycle in it.There is a cycle in a linked list if there is some node in the list that can be reached again by continuously following the

`next`

pointer. Internally,`pos`

is used to denote the index of the node that tail's`next`

pointer is connected to.Note that

posis not passed as a parameter.Return

`true`

if there is a cycle in the linked list. Otherwise, return`false`

.

Given the

`root`

of a binary search tree and the lowest and highest boundaries as`low`

and`high`

, trim the tree so that all its elements lies in`[low, high]`

. Trimming the tree shouldnotchange the relative structure of the elements that will remain in the tree (i.e., any node's descendant should remain a descendant). It can be proven that there is aunique answer.Return

the root of the trimmed binary search tree. Note that the root may change depending on the given bounds.

Write a function that takes an unsigned integer and returns the number of ‘1’ bits it has (also known as the Hamming weight).

Note:Note that in some languages such as Java, there is no unsigned integer type. In this case, the input will be given as a signed integer type. It should not affect your implementation, as the integer’s internal binary representation is the same, whether it is signed or unsigned.

In Java, the compiler represents the signed integers using 2’s complement notation. Therefore, in

Example 3above, the input represents the signed integer.`-3`

.

Today, we will be looking at the following problem listed as **hard **with an **acceptance rate of** **38.6%** at the time of writing.

The problem goes as follows:

Given the

`root`

of a binary tree, calculate thevertical order traversalof the binary tree.For each node at position

`(row, col)`

, its left and right children will be at positions`(row + 1, col - 1)`

and`(row + 1, col + 1)`

respectively. The root of the tree is at`(0, 0)`

.The

vertical order traversalof a binary tree is a list of top-to-bottom orderings for each column…

Today, we will be looking at the following problem:

Given an integer

`n`

, returnthedecimal valueof the binary string formed by concatenating the binary representations of`1`

to`n`

in order,modulo`10^9 + 7`

.

Here is my solution:

In order to figure out this problem, I had to learn about bitwise operations and how shifting bits to the left is equal to multiplying the number by `2 * (number of places shifted)`

.

For example, if I had the number `25`

which translates to `11001`

. A left shift would result in `110010`

which is just a…

Before diving into the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner or CCPs, let me tell you more about why “the cloud” excites me.

As you can see “the cloud” is everywhere around us. We can see that GitHub is a cloud repository for our code and services such as MongoDB Atlas or Heroku are helping you host your applications on the cloud. It’s easy to take for granted that we can very easily host those applications on storage that we do not own.

This is part 3 of the Learning TypeScript series. In part 2, we looked into what interfaces in TypeScript are and how they describe the shape of our objects in JavaScript. In this article, we will be exploring functions in more detail.

TypeScript supports both named and anonymous functions just like in JavaScript. To add types to our functions, we could explicitly add types to our parameters and return values (optional).

Another way we can type check is by defining the type first before referencing that type with our function.

This is part 2 of the Learning TypeScript series. In part 1, we looked into what TypeScript is, how to install it, and its basic types. In this article, we will be exploring its interfaces.

Simply put, an interface is a way of describing the shape of an object. In TypeScript, we are only concerned with checking if the properties within an object have the types that are declared and not if it specifically came from the same object instance.

To emphasize how TypeScript only checks the shape of objects, we have `thisObj`

and `thatObj`

with the same property…

I have a passion for coding.
