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've 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've come up with a list of 16 patterns for coding questions, based on similarities in the techniques needed to solve them. As a result, once you're 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.
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.
I'm a rising senior at UC Berkeley & just finished my 2nd internship at Google. This course provides the exact details that other coding platforms like LeetCode don't offer. I LOVE that the course is broken up into different "patterns" to develop a deep understanding of problems.
Whoever put this together, you folks are life savers. Thank you :)
I really feel like the whole binary search section nails the pattern finding goal of the course. I love the use of `start` and `end` at the end of a normal Binary Search to solve interesting problems using properties we know they will have.
Excellent course. Thanks for putting all in one place. Please give us more courses like this.
