Just wanted to share the happy news here :)
Still getting the numbers, but should be around $250K.

The last 3 months have been crazy with solving leetcode and preparing hard. It finally paid off.

To people in similar boat, the secret is tons of luck + preparation and controlling your emotions during the interview, you have to be super freaking quick about everything. "How to perform in high pressure situations" episode in Tim Ferris podcasts helped me to get confidence during preparation and let me focus my mind only on the process instead of the prize.

Blind has been really helpful with interview experiences and TC estimations. Thanks for your inputs on the app.

    How about system design? People always talk about Leetcode but never worry about system design. Just wanna know more insight, experience, materials, and preparation about system design. Thanks!

      I worked at start ups and built multiple systems ground up, so I was little comfortable with design in general. But I watched around 20 YouTube videos and used System design Primer as the structure when putting the high level design on the whiteboard.

      Negotiation helps u go to the top of the comp band for your level. You won't be able to go past it.

      At fb you have E4 with 3 yrs experience in and E4 with 6 yrs experience working for same pay. You need to do well in system design to be leveled at E5

    How many LC did you solve over this time?
    Apr 5 3
    • OP
      250 in this session and overall 350. After 200 it doesn't matter, it sounds like cliche when people say focus on the fundamentals, but it's true. Know in and out of the basic data structures and algos
