I've been reading a lot post, from people looking for a new job or trying to land in a FAANG company and all of them mention "LeetCode", seriously it's that important, makes any difference or what's the matter?

      Correct: 2 nots cancel to become “necessary if you’re stupid”. Please leetcode more.

      I was being sarcastic. Guess you need someone to add /s for you to get it. Don’t worry just leetcode some more and you will get it

      You also need to learn what sarcasm means.

      I recommend Leetcode. Check it out!

    The recruiters themselves explicitly ask you to practice on leetcode.

    There’s not much else that really matters, even at senior levels leetcode has the most weight

    For software engineering you need proficiency with some basic data structures and algorithms — leetcode provides extensive practice problems.
