Tell me about the most challenging project you ever worked on

LLD Question: Design Twitter Apis, basic database design and how will you load user timeline optimally.

Round 5 (Video Call, Bar Raiser): This round was completely behavioral. Inclusive of questions about work that I have done.

• Why Amazon?
• Tell me about a challenge you faced. What was your role & the outcome?

Technical Question:

• Given a complete binary tree, perform the following spiral traversal of the tree
• print left most nodes on each level from top to bottom
• print all nodes on the bottom-most level from left to right
• print right-most nodes on each level from bottom to top
• every node is to be visited only once, perform this iteration until the whole tree is traversed
```                                 1
2                           3
4               5               6           7
8    9         10 .................................  15
16   17 .............................................        31
32  33 ...................                                   62   63```

Solved this using bfs and map of the deque.

Interviewer gave me suggestion to solve this using dequq<deque> instead of map<int, dqueue> as removing element in dequq<deque> takes O(1) while map<int, dqueue> in worst case took O(logn).
