Ask HN: How to Get Good at Algorithm Design?
I have been trying my luck with CLRS, some Skienna, Leetcode and HackerRank. I have gotten a bit better at it, but nowhere near where I could come up with a brand new algorithm. Any pointers what I may be missing? Is it Math? More practice? I really want to get good at it. My real interest is in Scientific Computing, but that's for another day.
