This is one student 1 month after taking this course:
"I joined the course when it came out, and after a couple of months studying, practice, and more practice, losing sleep and everything I'm proud to say that I got an offer from GOOGLE!! I still can't believe it, it's incredibly surreal. And I can't thank you and this entire community enough for what you've given me. This year is notorious for how tumultuous it's been, but it's seriously has been a test from the first second of this year.. I've shed many, many tears these past 12 months and could write a book on the experience this year. but i just want to Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing me (and this community) the resources needed to realize my potential that I honestly never saw in myself.. and now that I know i can get this far, I know that this is only the beginning.."

Want to land a job at a great tech company like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Netflix, Amazon, or other companies but you are intimidated by the interview process and the coding questions? Do you find yourself feeling like you get "stuck" every time you get asked a coding question? This course is your answer. Using the strategies, lessons, and exercises in this course, you will learn how to land offers from all sorts of companies. This is the ultimate resource to prepare you for coding interviews. Everything you need in one place!

The goal of the course isn't to tell you: "Do 100 interview questions and hope you memorize their answers." NO! Our goal is to use the hand selected common interview questions to give you a framework to answer ANY interview question that these companies may throw at you. Instead of trying to memorize common questions, we teach you the principles and fundamentals that you can use to notice certain common patterns in questions so that any question that you get, you have a framework to answer and be confident in your programming interview.

You will also get access to our private online community with thousands of developers online to help you get through the course and the interview!

Taught by:

Andrei is the instructor of the highest rated Web Development course on Udemy as well as one of the fastest growing. His graduates have moved on to work for some of the biggest tech companies around the world like Apple, Google, JP Morgan, IBM, etc... He has been working as a senior software developer in Silicon Valley and Toronto for many years, and is now taking all that he has learned, to teach programming skills and to help you discover the amazing career opportunities that being a developer allows in life. 

Having been a self taught programmer, he understands that there is an overwhelming number of online courses, tutorials and books that are overly verbose and inadequate at teaching proper skills. Most people feel paralyzed and don't know where to start when learning a complex subject matter, or even worse, most people don't have $20,000 to spend on a coding bootcamp. Programming skills should be affordable and open to all. An education material should teach real life skills that are current and they should not waste a student's valuable time.   Having learned important lessons from working for Fortune 500 companies, tech startups, to even founding his own business, he is now dedicating 100% of his time to teaching others valuable software development skills in order to take control of their life and work in an exciting industry with infinite possibilities. 

Andrei promises you that there are no other courses out there as comprehensive and as well explained. He believes that in order to learn anything of value, you need to start with the foundation and develop the roots of the tree. Only from there will you be able to learn concepts and specific skills(leaves) that connect to the foundation. Learning becomes exponential when structured in this way. 

Taking his experience in educational psychology and coding, Andrei's courses will take you on an understanding of complex subjects that you never thought would be possible.
