Interviews are not just about writing code and finding the solution to a problem statement but also about how efficient you are with your code architecture and how sound you are with technology and best practices. Learning from a community is always the best because there might always be a second person who has worked on something you haven't or who would be talking about something you might now know, this spurs up the opportunity to learn more.

I’ve also heard good things about algoexpert.io

It was created by a software engineer who previously worked at both google and Facebook and left to create this site with another person. Might be worth a look!

(edited to fix link)

 

i guess you are talking about algoexpert.io ? I could not find anything on algo.io.

 

Yes I apologize I wrote that after a 20 hour day, I’m used to referencing it short hand 😰

I’ll edit it 🤫 lol

Glad you mentioned it, it will surely help others, atleast me. LOL

 
 

It's a very nice collection, many of us do not about some of these.
How about sorting them on the basis of quality and skills required?

 
 

Nice thanks for the info. Im getting ready for some technical interviews for the next 3 months

 

I am now practicing using Hackerrank. Nice platform and lot of good questions, really force me to learn algorithm again :D

 

You can try out Code Signal too. I love how they present a path. And you need to completely crack the current problem to unlock the next one!
