Who This Class is For
The ideal student for this course is someone who wants a comprehensive and easy to follow guide in preparing for coding interviews. They can be someone who's completely new to coding interviews (ie new grad, or someone going through a career change), or someone who hasn't done them in a while and wants to brush up for an upcoming interview.
What You Will Achieve at the End of this Class
What I hope to achieve with you at the end of the class is a better awareness and preparedness of what questions tech companies ask, and how to prepare for those questions. Even if the question isn't exactly the same, you'll recognize the pattern, and be able to start solving and speaking intelligently to the problem.
Steps for the Rest of the Class
Every coding interview I've done (with a few exceptions) has included whiteboarding. If you're coding remotely, it'll most likely be a word document with no compiler. There are some companies that will provide a platform that runs test cases through your program. This class is intended for the majority of companies that still whiteboard.
Therefore, it's smart to use pen(pencil) and paper to follow along with the lectures as I type and make your own notes. Try to solve the problem on your own before you look at the solution, and then compare your solution to mine. How do they differ and why? Each problem set will include a problem statement, a strategy for solving, a solution, and Big O complexity analysis (how efficient is our solution?) Go over the sections that you don't understand, because it will make you feel more confident.
Hi! My name is Alex and I've been working in software for almost a decade. Having gone through many software interviews in my career, I always wish I had a resource that would help me prepare in a more comprehensive way. That's the main reason I created this course, so that it could help other people going through their own interviews.
In my spare time, I like doing outdoor activities, like hiking, skiing, and playing tennis. Please reach out to me with any questions or feedback you have about this class, I would be more than happy to answer, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Coding Interview Bootcamp is dedicated to bridging the gap between candidate's knowledge, and their performance on coding interviews, and ultimately, a job offer. We offer a range of instructional videos and resources that focus on the most commonly asked questions. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
