Each instructor-led session was packed with information and there were lots of problems to practice. The course was intense, but it was a great use of my time.

“The course was very intense. During the two months it lasted, I would easily work 2+ hours every day, weekends included, on the homework problems. This course is just practice, practice, practice. And it works! Fast forward a couple of weeks, and I accepted my offer with Facebook.”

“Before Interview Kickstart, I had trouble with system design interviews. After going through the program, the structure of the curriculum helped me in understanding system design. After Interview Kickstart, I was able to get into Salesforce.”
