This is a solution to a one-trial assignment. They provided the interface of a graph node and asked me to implement a scalable algorithm that takes two nodes in a tree graph and its root node as input and calculates the minimal common parent node of those two nodes. The main restriction here is that each node doesn't know its parent but has access to all its sub-nodes.
