Live Coding 175 Session Recordings Now Available

We have now over 175+ live coding recordings for Leetcode live coding sessions. That is over 200 hours of discussions on coding problems. We are a group of developers preparing for FANG interviews. We meet everyday and work collaboratively on solving one medium Leetcode problem via Zoom.

This is NOT a study group. We flip the classroom. You study whatever resources you find useful before the meeting. We only focus on PRACTICE and FEEDBACK during the Zoom calls. We share tips and the peer to peer learning has worked really well so far.

I started the daily live coding sessions on July 25th, 2020. I have learned in just two months as much as I have learned in one year when I was studying and practicing by myself. Members requested me to record the sessions so they can watch any sessions that they miss.

We don't rush into coding. We analyze the problem, create a model of the problem and use the model to answer questions. We then brainstorm alternate approaches to solve the problem starting with brute-force and eventually code the optimal solution by the end of the session.

This is not passive learning like watching videos. The paid courses ask you to pause the video and think. But no one teaches how to think and ask questions to solve problem from scratch. We code the solution to problems from scratch.

Our group hates memorizing and we focus on gaining deep understanding of the concepts. Join Leetcode Live Coding Telegram group:

You will also get access to the Zoom cloud recordings. You will develop insights on how to approach coding problems and you don't have to memorize anything. You will learn how visualizing the key aspects of well known algorithms can make it easier to understand the algorithms at a deeper level.
