"3 Months Coding Interview Preparation Guide"

I work at Dell & many #developers ask me how should they too prepare for “Big Tech” companies.

So, I created a roadmap of topics frequently asked in software engineering #Interviews

🧵A Thread🧵

#100DaysOfCode #InterviewTips
3 Months #interview preparation schedule

Week 0: Programming language
Week 1, 2 & 3: Data Structures
Week 4, 5 & 6: Algorithms
