It has been a great learning experience. The structure is really good and the materials as well. The lectures and live class pre-reading material is very informative and engaging.

I completed IK’s program and got offers from a couple of FAANG companies. Why you should take this course: It is well tested and the focus is more on the concepts/templates rather than approaching one problem at a time. You will meet peers who have similar aspirations. You can make groups and help yourselves.
engineer

Jameson Merkow

Principal AI Engineer
Placed at:
meta blue
I joined IK because I had a lot of really terrible experiences with interviews. The confidence and expertise I routinely demonstrated in the workplace was not translating to interviews. I lacked confidence during behavioral interviews and felt completely lost when asked  coding questions. IK taught me how to clearly demonstrate my skills and experience during interviews which ultimately helped me find a Principal engineering position at Microsoft.

I liked the course that IK provided a lot. IK provided all the knowledge on a variety of topics that helped me prepare for coding interviews. The mock interviews were really great. Landing a job at my desired company has been a great pleasure.
