I personally found reading this very helpful. Read the problem, come up with a solution, compare your solution, read on to see if there is an optimization, think about the optimization, implement it, then go back and read about their optimized solution. Some problems have 4-5 stages of optimization which I found were good to read and simulates an interview better – building in small steps and increasingly getting harder.

Instead of “bookmarking and forgetting,” I’m making this my home page so I can do one of these a day. My goal will be to use this to both practice my skills, and learn new languages.

Thanks for compiling the list!

Thank you for this! I think I’m going to make this my home screen as well; or set an alert to visit the site at least once a day. I’ve gone through a few technical interviews. This will help me prep, get better at programming and feel more confident overall.

This is surprisingly nice list. All problems I have encountered so far were very challenging..

Thank you so much this. This is truly an amazing site; something that I will use quite frequently in the months to come with my studies.

That’s a great list worthy of study in any context.

I flunked out of a half dozen first round technical interviews. Amazon, Microsoft, Google, a few startups, Facebook, etc. My mind would always blank out when it came to solving problems.

Thanks I was looking for more of these challenges/questions.

I wanted to thank the author(s) of the DP articles! They have been one of the best resources I have found online. Keep up the great work!

I really like the way this page is organized…

Bookmarked this for when I actually know algorithms and data structures.

very useful, thkx~

While obtaining the correct solution is optimal, I believe these interview questions are supposed to gauge a person’s ability to think out loud and ability to flesh out a decent plan of attack. If you start writing code immediately without asking any questions then it’s not going to end well.

This is great, thanks ^

I’ve given technical tests to people in interviews before, and the problem has always been the same one, with a bit of tweaking here and there. The test lasts 90 minutes, using a laptop with an IDE.

To tell the truth I hate doing it, mainly because when I got asked to give the test, I spent some time tackling the problem myself just so I could get an idea of what was expected – I genuinely didn’t think I would have passed the new technical test for the company I was employed at!

I think that biases the interview somewhat as you sit there judging someone on a problem you’ve had the luxury of solving yourself in a more relaxed environment.

Maybe a better approach would be both interviewer and interviewee are given a problem from an independent third party. That way both of you have to work through it together, although I’m not sure of the practical realities of that.

This is awesome. Many thanks.

Just found out yesterday that I’ll be having my first interview for a Google Software Engineering position in about a month. This is truly going to be invaluable, thank you!

Is it normal that I won’t be able to answer most of these questions myself ?

Awesome list. Now, I have to find a way to work through them.

Holy crap, this Looks awesome!!! I’m still at the point of learning stuff myself. Definitely using this to study/learn.

As someone who recently finished a data structures class, I wish I knew about this site before today!

Thank you for the solutions. The optimization part is being really helpful.

Although sometimes it may consume extra space and not looking fancy,

it delights me “wow, this guy knows how to use the code as a weapon.”

nice collection (y)
