Need advice from peers to be a coder and crack sw interviews
I am an asic design engineer. I am not a strong coder but I feel it’s high time I start developing the skill set for coding and eventually move towards SW. I tried to do some leetcode but I got depressed. I figured that I do not know basics of algo and data structure. My understanding is without doing basics and jumping directly will not only take a lot of time but also demotivate me.
I would like to know what is the best way to start becoming a good coder and also develop the skill to crack software engineering interviews. What books, online courses or YouTube channels I could follow to make this happen?
I use Perl and little python for scripting at work but nothing too crazy. My goal is to master python 1st. I am pumped to pick this up and be successful to make the career shift eventually.
Thank you :)
