Sudoku solver talk

April 11, 2017


Sudoku solver is such interesting problem and Julia wrote more than 3 solution in her practice back in 2015. Here is one of the blogs, and also Leetcode 37: sudoku solver is also very good material to review the algorithm.

Sudoku solver talk 

Here is the C# code written in 30 minutes mocking experience.

Transcript is compiled to make it work. C# code is here.

Highlights of a few corrections:

3 nested for loops. The first 2 for loops is to find the first cell with value -1 to do search, try numbers from 1 to 9 and start a DFS search, if all of them are failed, then return false; otherwise return true.

Need to talk about optimization, use the first one with value -1 to start DFS or other cell?

It is very important to learn the algorithm. Start from code review and learn from the important message in the review.
