    Leetcode. Because they know that if you have the discipline and motivation to do leetcode, you’ll learn all the things you’ve listed to be successful on the job.

      Haha, I'm totally a lay man. I don't even know the fields. I am just contacted by recruiters about real time bidding. Could you share some fields and required skils.?

      Agree, leetcode is pretty good. Having experience getting shit done a bonus but only if leetcode is good enough for them to ask you about your background.
