Details

Prepping for a coding interview? WWCode Boston's monthly Algorithms + Interview Prep meetup allows you to practice interview questions in a friendly, safe, and collaborative environment. Attendees work in small groups to improve their whiteboarding and problem-solving skills.

Groups are organized by preferred programming language, where everyone works together to find a solution. Problems are provided and vary in difficulty. Check out our Github repo for examples of past problems: https://github.com/WomenWhoCodeBoston/algorithms/

For Beginners: you'll pair with other early learners and practice answering easier questions. You're also encouraged to join a more experienced group and learn from their solutions.

Laptops are NOT required!
