Useful for Hack Reactor
- All of the Coderbyte easy problems. They took me anywhere from 1 minute to 15 minutes. I also did 2/3 of the medium problems–they weren’t significantly harder than the easy ones. The technical interview didn’t really ask the same types of questions, but it was a good way to practice syntax and thinking critically about a problem. I also looked at how other people solved the problems; it was neat seeing how others approached them (though some people’s approaches were admittedly overly complicated, in my opinion).
- I went through devdocs.io and read the documentation for arrays, strings, functions, etc. It’s good to understand how everything works, what parameters each function takes in, what you can do with arrays/strings, etc.
Less Directly Useful for Hack Reactor Application, But Educational
- I went to a Hack Reactor algorithms meetup. It was really fun and I met some cool people, and solved an interesting problem regarding Monte Carlo algorithms. I also got to look around the space a bit too.
- Looked at the underscore.js documentation for funsies
