Welcome to the most comprehensive guide you can find online about programming interviews!

The Ultimate Guide to Programming Interviews is a thorough compilation of the most up-to-date information and review materials you need to ace a technical interview and land your dream job.

It's not just a Java interview guide - this site covers basic data structures like arrays, linked lists, trees, graphs, etc. as well as essential concepts like recursion, running time analysis, and object oriented principles. In addition to technical information, there's also advice on how to handle HR questions, including salary negotiation tactics. There are also sections in the works to help review databases, networking, bits and bytes, and math / logic puzzles.

The content is structured to help you prepare for a programming interview by first revisiting the material with a quick review, then gradually ramping up the difficulty of questions to challenge you in preparation for the real deal. In addition to sample questions, the guide also contains detailed explanations of the techniques used to solve each problem so you can apply them to questions you'll receive in your interviews. You'll also learn how to approach a problem and discover how interviewers think, thereby allowing you to understand their needs and meet them in order to obtain high offers.

The practice questions in this guide will benefit you most if you stop and think about potential answers before reading the detailed answer explanation. As a result, it is highly encouraged that you try not to peek at the solution until you code your own answer for practice. Most solutions are in Java, with some in C, but there are plans to have multiple language solutions in the future.
