Course Overview

Coding interviews are getting harder every day. A few years back, brushing up on key data structures and going through 50-75 coding interview questions was more than enough prep for an interview. Today, everyone has access to massive sets of coding problems, and they have gotten more difficult to account for that. The process has gotten more competitive.

When our team sat together to brainstorm on ideas to make the interview process easier for candidates, we realized quickly that one skill helped us the most when we were preparing for coding interviews: "the ability to map a new problem to an already known problem."

To help candidates with that, we have come up with a list of 27 common coding patterns to help solve coding questions. The idea is, once you are familiar with a pattern, you'll be able to solve dozens of problems with it.

The techniques taught in this course have helped developers land jobs in top companies including Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft.

Check out Grokking the Coding Interview. Instead of trying out random Algos, they break down the patterns you need to solve them. Helps immensely with retention!

This is what I love about http://designgurus.io’s Grokking the coding interview course. They teach patterns rather than solutions.

I've tried every possible resource (Blind 75, Neetcode, YouTube, Cracking the Coding Interview, Udemy) and idk if it was just the right time or everything finally clicked but everything's been so easy to grasp recently with Grokking the Coding Interview!

The courses which have "grokking" before them, are exceptionally well put together! These courses magically condense 3 years of CS in short bite-size courses and lectures (I have tried System Design, OODI, and Coding patterns). The Grokking courses are godsent, to be honest.
