    If you wanna move as fast as you can, start with CS fundamentals and Leetcode. I assume you are already good at math

      Yes, I'm good at Math. Have a good understanding of Python libraries and the language as well. Can you point me to a book or a website for CS fundamentals?

      I think you should be comfortable enough to start reading a data structures and algorithm in Python book. There are several good books with this title. Some good universities use such books as their data structure/algo class textbooks therefore their slides could be useful. If you wanna dive deep for solid understanding, then you may read some topics in CLRS algorithm book. After that it’s all Leetcode.

      Additionally I think you may wish to know some OOD and common design patterns (2~4 I think). Many good resources online (in depth it would be GOF design pattern book). Should read some very basic parallelism/concurrently concepts, as well as system (Hw and C stuff)/OS. Just go to a good university’s CS courses website and look up their slides.

      May prepare some system design just for interviews (Grokking the system design).

      Haha I just started with some basic videos about data structure. Check out Jeff Erickson's notes online, I read on another post they are good. I am also looking into algorithm design manual book. Although I haven't started with either of them but on a cursory look, the book seems better to me. Pm me if you want to learn this together.
