Everyone warned me about the "Leetcode grind" and I thought I could power through. Not the case! After a couple weeks, I still couldn't solve easy problems! I also tried Hackerrank and other interview sites but my bootcamp didn't really teach the CS concepts. AlgoDaily's pace was perfect for me. I actually interviewed halfway through the course and got the job!

I tried a few sites first, but couldn't get into them. My friend said he used the AlgoDaily emails to help him prepare. I took the dive and got your course. Things are finally clicking! Thanks for explaining everything in plain English, and making algorithms way less scary.

The way I see AlgoDaily is as my personal tech career coach. I actually studied Comp Sci, but went into consulting after school. The career guides were useful for knowing what to expect. For the algos, I just went lesson by lesson, and did the daily email problems. When I went on-site at Google, I felt nervous but prepared. I got my offer two weeks later.

You already know that the top software companies have standardized on a type of coding interview. These interviews usually test your knowledge of data structures, algorithms, and systems design. But such Computer Science fundamentals aren't easy to learn, especially for those of us from a non-traditional engineering path.

Have you worried that not getting these concepts might be holding back your career? Or been stuck for hours on a Leetcode easy problem? Or been frustrated with not "seeing the patterns" after hours and hours of problem solving?

I was in your shoes. After learning the basics of how to code, I wanted to land a software engineering job. However, I kept getting data structures and algorithms problems during interviews, and they made no sense to me. When I prepared, I was confused by the mathematical notation, intimidated by how much I had to keep in my head, and found it difficult to stay motivated.

What if a resource like that was available?

Hi, I'm Jake! I've been in software for about a decade, first as a project manager and then an engineer. I've worked at all sorts of places, from high-growth startups to the leading tech giants. When I was transitioning to being a developer, I found academic resources to be dry and hard to understand.

I wanted a learning system that slowly but surely built up my Computer Science fundamentals. I wished that the books and articles were written in plain English, and not as though it were meant for academia. And above all, as someone who learns best by seeing and doing, I yearned for more visual, interactive ways to master the material.

So my team and I built the resource that we wanted. That's where AlgoDaily's full technical interview course comes in.

Here's every feature.

Step By Step

It's not just you-- these are difficult concepts for anyone to grasp by themselves. This scarcity has caused top software engineering jobs to pay eye-popping compensation numbers. However, we believe that anyone can become fluent. In fact, it doesn't have to be a grind. You simply need a system that teaches you the right way.

For each concept, you are guided to intuition. We always start with a gentle introduction. Then we teach the patterns to crack any problem using that concept. Only after you're well equipped with the fundamentals, do we start drilling interview problems in a progressional way.

Daily

You're a busy professional, and don't have all the time in the world to make sense of these fundamentals. Our philosophy is that systems, rather than raw willpower, help you achieve your goals. You need motivation that is automatic, hard to avoid, and predictable.

We've sliced up the curriculum into actionable chunks. Our cornerstone daily emails give you the lessons to read and challenges to solve each day to ensure that you stay on track.

Questions

To make sure you're retaining what you're learning, we provide questions within our lessons and walkthroughs. It ensures that recall is high, and that you won't stumble on small details when you need them.

Check out our lesson on Javascript Interview Questions for a taste.

Visual

To truly understand how the code works, you need to see it.

We made everything a visual experience: the design of the platform, the lessons, and the problems are crafted to help you focus better and grasp the material. Over 400+ diagrams and visualizations ensure that it clicks quickly.

Coding Environment

We think it's best to learn by doing. There are many daily coding email sites, but we're the only one with a fleshed out coding environment. Test code and try things out to get better at algorithmic thinking. Then go through our amazing walkthroughs so that you perform well on game day.

Available in two ways

Unlocked lessons and challenges will always be free.
But for the price of lunch, enhance your career and double your pay at your next job.

We go beyond algorithms and data structures, and teach you how to learn and succeed as a developer.

Common questions we get

Why AlgoDaily?

Are you a coding bootcamp graduate, self taught developer, or career switcher? Or otherwise thinking about breaking into software? If so, you've reached the same conclusion as us. Most of the material out there promises to help you land your first software engineering job. But once you dig in, you find they're complicated and often plain inaccessible.

Ever thought: what are these mathematical symbols? Time complexity makes absolutely no sense. Whiteboards and graphs scare me. Am I smart enough to get this stuff?

Many software companies now use standardized technical interviews. We're here to help non-traditional developers feel prepared for them.

You're not traditional, and neither are we.


What is AlgoDaily?

AlgoDaily was created to help developers level up in their careers. We teach people how to break into the industry and build amazing programming careers. We're designed for those who have not taken a formal Data Structures or Algorithms class (or for those who feel like they didn't get it the first time).

We teach by making things daily, guided, and visual. The cornerstone of the course is the daily email that ensures you're making a little bit of progress each day.

Our flagship product is our online course that helps ambitious developers land jobs. In it, you'll find nuggets of career wisdom and guides on every aspect of the technical interview. We also offer in-depth, step-by-by step walkthroughs for hundreds of real interview problems.

Given our namesake, as you might expect, we also have a free daily newsletter. It comprises of a technical interview question every day, for 100 days. The problem sent is based on where you are in the AlgoDaily list of challenges.

We've designed our course to optimize for developer happiness. Over 5000 developers have gone through our course. They talk about how they're finally prepared for grueling technical challenges. That the problems we covered helped them pass real interviews with confidence. And how they finally realized, believe it or not, that interview prep could be fun!

The course is written in plain English, and only teaches the essentials of what you need to know for technical interviews.

Finally, we are built for visual learners, and thus have hundreds of videos, illustrations, and code visualizations.

Check out our sample email or our curriculum to see the AlgoDaily difference.


How does AlgoDaily differ from other interview sites?

The first is our illustrations and visualizations: no other resource has such beautiful, helpful artifacts accompanying each guide. Professionally curated diagrams and the ability to step through code are priceless for visual learners. All of our artifacts are made by programmers with a design background, ensuring that comprehension comes with aesthetics.

Secondly, we have an interesting approach. Rather than give you the solution, we teach the approach. AlgoDaily is not meant to be an interview question bank. There are plenty of those! Every problem on the site is walked through step by step, allowing you the space and time to digest everything that's happening and repeat the process come interview day.

Third, we teach via recall. By forcing you to tackle smaller hint questions as you think through challenges, we are priming your brain to remember concepts better.

Our offerings are also unique: the course allows you to experience tutorials as either slides or long-form articles. Daily emails help with adherence and help to keep up your motivation. We are also the only daily email service to offer a working code editor, letting you write code directly on the platform.

Finally, our executable code blocks and samples throughout the explanations help you get hands-on with the learnings quickly and readily.


What is pricing for AlgoDaily?

It's 100% free to sign up! All members can try to solve all of the technical problems, as well as access existing problems and lessons which are being developed.

For unlimited access to the full course, please click here to enroll in the complete AlgoDaily curriculum. We charge a one-time payment of $79 for one year of access.


Who should get a subscription?

AlgoDaily is designed for:

  • Bootcamp graduates, self-taught developers, career transitioners.
  • People who've never taken a formal Computer Science course.
  • Visual learners who can't stand dry textbooks.
  • Students who want a simplified version of their class materials.
  • People who enjoy learning by doing.
  • Folks who've tried to learn Computer Science theory but couldn't stay motivated.

What's your background?

The lead instructor and founder, Jake, is an engineer with a decade of experience, interviewing and being interviewed, at several top software companies and financial firms. The rest of the team consists of programmers with backgrounds in career coaching, design, and technical writing.


Why do you charge for the course?

When we made AlgoDaily guides and solutions free, we found that users were completing less problems. Paying for the material is an intrinsic motivator to ensure that you actually put in the hours to learn to interview well. It helps to have skin in the game. Additionally, we want to maintain a high standard for AlgoDaily content-- which means hiring world-class talent to produce the lessons, walkthroughs, and visuals.


Why do you include career guides and lessons?

Getting a software engineering job goes beyond just interviewing well. To even get the interview, you need to ensure your resume's solid, you have a referral in, and you can make a good impression. Not all of this is intuitive, so we ensure that those lessons are also included.


What programming languages do you support?

We currently have full support (code execution environment and tests/solutions) for Javascript, Java, and Python. We have partial support (code execution environment only) for C#, Go, and Ruby.

We are targeting full C#, Go, and Ruby support by end of Q3 2020.


How should I study?

We have found that the one-problem-a-day approach to preparation is a good cadence. Most people will start studying for their interviews roughly 1-3 months out, which ensures that about 30-90 problems are seen. We recommend going through How to Prepare for a Technical Interview for our thoughts.

In our experience, 30-90 focused problems that specifically focus on any gaps in knowledge are all that's necessary to feel confident come interview time.


AlgoDaily was not what I was expecting, I'd like to cancel.

Not a problem, we understand that AlgoDaily is not for everyone. If at any time you are unhappy with your subscription, we are happy to stop your membership immediately or grant a refund. Simply email us.
