So, you graduated from a software engineering boot camp and don’t really know what to do next. I completely understand because I was in your shoes very recently. Hopefully this will help you know what to focus on next. I included many links to amazing articles that helped me.
Algorithms and Data Structures
These are very important to focus on next. You will be solving algos in technical interviews and they are essential in your future software engineering career. The main once to focus on are:
With a focus on:
Here are a few great links on learning those algos and data structures:
8 Common Data Structures every Programmer must know
Data Structures are a specialized means of organizing and storing data in computers in such a way that we can perform…
For practice I recommend these websites:
Time and Space Complexity (you know, Big O)
The big O of algos is something that will seem foreign at first but don’t worry it will click eventually and come naturally. Here are some great articles including a cheat sheet on Big O.
LinkedIn and GitHub
Get these up to speed. This is where you can show off your skills, so keep GitHub in the green, and get that LinkedIn profile looking sharp.
This probably seems like a lot to do. It is. It took me about three months, but I didn’t really know what to focus on first.
Good luck! I believe in you!
