Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 1 & 2, 2016session

Cracking the Coding Interview

What's the deal with the coding interviews at companies like Google and Facebook? Learn what these companies really want, what CS topics you do and don't need to know, and strategies to solve their tough coding and algorithm problems.

About This Session

Programming interviews are a different breed from other interviews and, as such, require specialized skills and techniques. This talk will teach you how to prepare for coding interviews, what top companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft really look for, and how to tackle the toughest programming and algorithm problems. This is not a fluffy be-your-best talk; it is deeply technical and will discuss specific algorithm and data structure topics.
