Preparing for coding interviews

English speaking club – with coding problems. We use Leetcode, Hackerrank, and the "Cracking the Coding Interview" book.

English speaking club, but with coding problems. We use Leetcode, Hackerrank, and the "Cracking the Coding Interview" book. There are usually several activities happening at the same time:

  • Solving problems from leetcode et al. and writing algorithms down by hand
  • Live coding session on a big screen, with streaming it on twitch
  • Free discussion on how to solve a particular problem or how to speak about it in English.

We are building a friendly nerdy community, an environment to help each other both with solving coding problems and with overcoming struggles to communicate in English while being judged for your answers. We're whiteboarding, not waterboarding. It should feel like a videogame: it's ok to fail and try again. Encourage and be patient.

If you are new here, here's your homework:
1. Sign up to https://www.hackerrank.com/, https://www.leetcode.com/, and https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/ to be ready to solve coding problems on these sites
2. Actually solve a couple of entry level problems to get comfortable with the interface
3. Install a dictionary on your phone and don't hesitate to use it

You can also focus on practicing in your target language first. For example:
- https://www.hackerrank.com/domains/python
- https://www.hackerrank.com/domains/cpp
- https://www.hackerrank.com/domains/tutorials/10-days-of-javascript

Stream on Twitch — we're looking for a star that wouldn't be too shy to perform live coding.
