You will be called to have a long discussion with your future team members. This discussion will cover many things from CS fundamentals to latest coding trends. So we encourage you to do a quick refresh on topics like data structures, algos and runtime complexity as well as core concepts of your primary language (e.g. Java or Python). We will also try to tackle some real-world software design problems together as we do every other day. It may sound scary but it’s really not. We want you to succeed.
