Technical Interviewing I: Intro to Algorithms & Problem Solving (Hybrid Cohort)

Virtual Classes

Aug 15, 2023, 12:30 AM – Sep 12, 2023, 2:00 AM


About this event

In this class, you’ll learn to beat the coding interview anxiety by engaging in an easy-to-remember problem-solving process taught in universities around the country that helps you think your way through the problem in a short period of time. You’ll also get a lot of supplemental practice opportunities, and you’ll get into a rhythm of daily practice that should help you to cruise through any surprise algorithm challenge. You should find you’ve become confident in your ability to start solving interview problems involving strings, arrays, numbers, JSON, and prevent your brain from shutting down in the interview by the end of this 4-week boot camp on the algorithms challenges that are actually being asked in interviews today.
