Quarantine — Day 61

Because it's all 'bout hashmaps

This post is part of an ongoing series in which I document my journey through the COVID-19 quarantine. See Day 1 for full context.

Quick update

Spent pretty much all day working on a blog post on hashmaps. I truly believe this topic to be critical in software engineering. It’s also a silver bullet in any coding interview so I better spend good time creating a good piece of content.
