Why is it called a 4 Week Bootcamp?
The on-demand content of the bootcamp is structured as a 4-week course. However, you can go at your own pace if you like.
How is the bootcamp structured?
The bootcamp has 3 components - Our on-demand Course Material, Weekly Live Sessions, and Slack community. You have access to Live Sessions for 3 months, and everything else for a full year.
How often are Live Sessions?
Our live sessions are weekly for 2 hours over video conference. They are held on Tuesdays from 8:30pm-10:30pm Pacific Time. If you miss a session, you can watch the recording.
There’s plenty of material online. Why do I need this bootcamp?
That is the reason we made this bootcamp. There is too much material online and a lot of it is not realistic for interviews. This bootcamp gives you a curated structured path, along with live sessions to help you stay on track.
I already purchased Cracking the Coding Interview or other books. Do I need this bootcamp?
Books are great, we love them too. This bootcamp is for people who want an extra edge in their preparation. With our weekly sessions and guided material, you can get that for a low price. No single book gives you all the right techniques. We have our own content and we compile our material from books, online sources, and our own experience.
Who is this bootcamp for?
This bootcamp is for anyone seeking a job that conducts interviews with data structures, algorithms, and system design. This is the most popular format in the software industry.
I am a coding bootcamp graduate. Is this bootcamp for me?
Yes, this bootcamp is beginner friendly. We go through introductions of each data structure and algorithm. However, if you have not learned algorithms and data structures before, we expect you to allocate more time on these topics.
What are the prerequisites?
A lot of these concepts are theoretical in nature, so you should have studied them in at some point, or willing to learn them now. This course is primarily for people who have a background in software engineering, either through college, coding bootcamp or industry.
When does the bootcamp start and finish?
This is a completely self-paced course - you decide when you start and when you finish. We have live sessions every week. You have access to all the material for a full year and live sessions for 3 months.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to the course material for a full year - across any and all devices you own.
How much time do you expect me to dedicate?
Mastering interview algorithms and system design takes time. You can go at your own pace, you have access for a full year. If you want to follow the 4-week timeline, we expect you to dedicate 15-20 hours/week on this bootcamp. This includes lectures, live sessions and practice.
What if I am unhappy with the bootcamp?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase anytime within the first 7 days, please email us and we will give you a full refund. No questions asked.
What language does the bootcamp use?
The bootcamp is language agnostic, so you can use any language you want. We teach concepts that can be implemented in any language. We provide solutions in Pseudocode and Java.
Do I need a textbook for this bootcamp?
We have our own material, which contains more content than most textbooks you will find.
