Given an array of n integers, this algorithm will find the maximum sum of any contiguous subarray of the array. For example, given the input array [1, -3, 2, 1, -1], the algorithm would output 3.
The candidate's solution correctly finds the maximum sum of any contiguous subarray of the given array. The approach is to keep track of the current sum as we iterate through the array, and update the maximum sum if necessary. If the current sum ever becomes negative, we reset it to 0 since we know that a subarray with a negative sum will never be the maximum sum.
