You already know that the top software companies have standardized on a coding interview testing your knowledge of data structures and algorithms. But these Computer Science fundamentals are not 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 of 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, data structures and algorithms made no sense to me. I was confused by the mathematical notation, intimidated by how much I had to keep in my head, and found it incredibly difficult to stay motivated.
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 a visual learner, I yearned for more videos, more diagrams, and more interactive ways to master the material.
That's where AlgoDaily comes in.
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.
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.

It's good to interview software devs for sysytems design topic - from juniors to senior architects - good ones will kick ass. Here is a good orientation - https://t.co/2YfY6hEsa3— Alex Gorbachev (@alexgorbachev) July 21, 2019
Another great resource I have never heard of... this is fantastic!— Caitlyn (@thecaitcode) July 11, 2019
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.
If you've bought the full course and are at any point unsatisfied with your purchase, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your money back. We don't want to keep your money unless you feel like you've gained value from the course.
If you're a coding bootcamp graduate, self taught developer, or career switcher looking to break into software, you might have reached the same conclusion as us-- most of the material out there promising to help you land your first software engineering job is just 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?
We're here to help non-traditional developers prepare for the standardized technical interviews that many software companies now use.
You're not traditional, and neither are we.
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.
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.
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, full access to the full course, please click here to enroll in the complete AlgoDaily curriculum. We charge a one-time payment of $79 for six months access, or $15/month for a monthly subscription.
Most of our students prepare for interviews a few months out. We've found six months of unlimited access to be perfect for someone preparing for a round of interviews at technology companies.
In addition, we are always upgrading existing material and adding new content. The course grows and more learning blocks and material are added on a weekly basis.
We now also offer a monthly subscription option for $15/month.
AlgoDaily is designed for:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 contact us at email@example.com with the subject Cancellation.
