Hello, techies Nomadev here, back with another blog on tech. Today I will let you know the best 7 Coding platforms to master Coding.
As we all know that Skilled developers are money-making machines, if you want to be one you must have very strong problem-solving skills. Almost every big company and startup prefer people who are well versed with data structures and algorithms and are at problem-solving.
Now the question arises how can we be good at it? And this question has only one real answer - practice a lot, but you must solve gradually harder problems, not just the easy ones. Get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself.. Start from the easy one and be consistent and you will master the job.
Before starting practicing problems on given websites make sure you have a good command of any programming language(recommended - C++, Java, Python).
When I am saying good command it means you must be acquainted with the implementation of various Data Structures and Algorithms in that particular language.
So without wasting much time let's chime into the list.
HackerRank is one of the best platforms for newbies. HackerRank has hundreds of questions and is famous for its eye-catching User Interface and ease for beginners' tools. You will be awarded starts on solving problems here, and you will get a certificate also if you will pass their timed contests. It is one of the best Platforms to get a kickstart.
HackerEarth is quite famous for its hiring challenges. There are few hiring challenges exclusively based on Java programming while few are open for other languages as well. However, passing the coding round doesn't guarantee the job. The performance adds extra points in the process of selection. You can read the job responsibilities and requirements on the registration page of the contests. They usually require knowledge of other languages/technologies too.
Leetcode is one of the fastest emerging coding platforms. The standard of questions in Leetcode is much above that of others. Leetcode is a great resource to prepare the technical interviews. It has quite a few very interesting and helpful coding questions that can help you be better prepared for an interview. Leetcode has a huge number of test cases and questions from interviews too like Google, Amazon, etc.
If you are a computer science grad. you must have heard the name of CodeChef, and you might have cs students flaunting their rating on CodeChef.
CodeChef is a non-profit competitive programming community set up by the Indian company, Directi that aims to take people better at coding by having hundreds of problems in the practice section and 3 official contests per month, along with various external contests.
Codechef organizes mainly 3 types of officially rated challenges per month -
Codechef Long Challenge
Moreover, CodeChef also has a great catalog of practice questions of difficulty ranging from Easy to Hard. The Easy questions are beginner-friendly and help people start off with programming and gradually improve. And upon your performance on the rated contests, they will give you starts or ranking.
And believe me, it matters a lot, If you have a good rating on any platform you will get a huge plus in the interviews.
CodeForces is well known for its timed contests and has almost the most difficult set of coding problems. You will get ratings for your performance in contests. As a newbie, you should not care about rating because that is your biggest barrier in trying harder and trying problems out of your comfort zone during a competition. Even if your rating is going down, it doesn't mean you aren't improving. They have a gym section where you can practice numerous questions for free.
## 6. GeeksforGeeks Practice
GFG is a master of all trades, from learning any topic from tech to practicing its questions geeks for geeks is the best platform. The platform provides you access to all types of training materials, from programming problems to practice for entrance exams, from basic to premium courses, etc. GeeksforGeeks shows an inclusive approach to all technical concepts and several ways to resolve programming problems that enable you to choose the appropriate solution.
Topcoder competitive programming is a widely popular platform for competitive programming. It is one of the best coding practice sites for beginners that offer a lot of algorithmic challenges that you can complete on your own using their code editor tool. It also has a separate section where you can practice or test your development skills.
