How is Udacity as a boot camp? Also is 30 LC medium/hard problems per day a good pace?

Mar 16, 2019 9 Comments

Have a friend rolling off a 4 month boot camp soon. Grinds LC hard and medium about 30 problems daily. Has some prior coding experience as a BA, wants change SDE.

Is the online boot camp a good choice and how is it perceived by recruiters/engineers/managers?

What is a good pace for LC problems?

Just going to shoe horn this in here: anyone looking for a full stack web dev for their team?

    You need 500 LC solved, 50% of those should be hard

    Solving 30 problem would take 15 hours. Maybe your friend is bluffing. It is not possible to focus for 15 hours a day every day.

      If solving hard only takes 30 minutes on the first attempt, you don't need to prepare, end of story. 30 will probably take 30 hours..

      Correct. I put an optimistic estimate. It is obviously not possible to spend 30 hours in a day, so OPs friend is bluffing.

    30 medium/hard a day? Lol if your friend can do that, s/he can clear almost all company like a breeze within a month

    If your friend don't think but only looking at solutions and code them up, 30 = 0 and the number means nothing

    • Oh I see. 30 is probably on weekends, maybe average is 10. But yeah she does it all from scratch no cheating code copying etc.

    30 problems a day all medium and hard is insane. She’d be done within a month. There are only 1k problems on there
