Surviving the C++ Coding Interview

About the Book

Do you have a coding interview lined up, or simply want to brush up on solving complex coding problems?

The coding interview remains the central part of the hiring process. While some companies have shifted and use it only as a convenient scaffolding, for most, it remains the primary filter for candidates. Training for this part of the process, therefore, remains critical.

This book will guide you through the different categories of problems and teach you the common patterns and approaches to solving any coding problem with optimal time and space complexity.

The companion repository will give you a zero-setup C++ development environment to train your coding skills while solving common interview problems.

Causes Supported

Electronic Frontier Foundation

Defending your civil liberties in a digital world.

Based in San Francisco, EFF is a donor-supported membership organization working to protect fundamental rights regardless of technology.

From the Internet to the iPod, technologies are transforming our society and empowering us as speakers, citizens, creators, and consumers. When our freedoms in the networked world come under attack, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the first line of defense. EFF broke new ground when it was founded in 1990—well before the Internet was on most people's radar—and continues to confront cutting-edge issues defending free speech, privacy, innovation, and consumer rights today. From the beginning, EFF has championed the public interest in every critical battle affecting digital rights.
