Interview 1:The interviewer asked me to introduce myself then he jumped into asking a coding question on Binary trees. He wanted me to explain the approach and then wanted me to write the code (just the function).

Interview 2: Tell me about the most interesting project that you have done to date.

  • Coding question: You will be given a binary string, add one, and output the binary string.
