Technical interviews are very daunting, especially if you’ve never done them before and don’t know what to expect. Solving tricky algorithmic problems on the spot with the pressure of the interview is no easy task: it requires quick and careful problem solving, excellent communication, and of course, coding ability.
However, with the right preparation and tips on what to do during your interview, coding interviews really aren’t so bad and can actually be sort of fun and a great way to chat with an engineer who works at the company.
Throughout my two years in college, I’ve had the opportunity…
It’s pretty common to see college students carrying around tablet devices nowadays — its easy portability and high functionality make the investment all the more worth the cost.
For the past two years, I’ve been using an iPad 6 paired with the Apple Pencil 1 for all my school work and it still serves me very well in all my classes regardless of the subject.
I love the convenience of having everything I need from notes to class material all in one place and accessible from this small device not to mention the wonderful little features that are built into…
I think we can agree that everyone has been impacted greatly by COVID-19 one way or another — some worse than others. For students, this meant a sudden transition to remote work.
Seemingly insignificant, the shift to a virtual semester was no small change and undoubtedly a challenge for many of us: no in-person classes, various technical difficulties, a lack of social interaction, no campus life. …
Boston is a lovely and diverse international hub littered with a plethora of restaurants and hidden food gems ranging from fancy, high-end bars and grills to authentic, ethnic foods of various cultures.
Over the last couple of years, bubble tea has become increasingly popular in the United States for both tourists and locals, thus resulting in many new boba shops popping up all over Boston. It’s a great place to grab a sweet and filling drink especially with friends or a date.
As someone who loves boba and often commutes to Boston, I’ve had the opportunity to try many of…
Here are the only 3 apps I use when it comes down to “productivity” and it’s all I need to stay on top of my tasks.
As I began focusing a lot of my education and career late from late high school into early college, I began running into a problem that many others run into: productivity.
I would struggle not only to complete necessary things like school work and studying in a timely manner, but I would also struggle to do other things that I would want to do, for example, side projects and career-building.
Over the past couple…
Why a to-do list is all you need to stay on top of your tasks and get things done.
Search “productivity app” on the App Store and you’ll get hundreds of results: from planners to habit trackers, to powerful organization tools.
If you’re any sort of a productivity geek like me, you’ve probably already downloaded many of these hoping to find the one app that magically helps you get your life together.
Truth is, whether or not these productivity apps “work” really depends on you. …
Personal projects. It can be a very daunting idea especially if you’ve never made something of your own before.
After spending a whole year in programming classes and mastering all the different introductory components in your Intro to CS class, you still have zero clue on how to build something for the real world.
I’ve noticed this from a lot of people and is definitely something I experienced throughout much of my coding journey.
While having a solid coding foundation is very important, there is a whole world of other skills outside of coding that you need to be able…
If you’re in college or high school, you’ve most likely come across many students using iPad Pros if you don’t already have one. I mean, what’s not to be drawn to? It’s sleek, high-tech, and lightweight — the perfect gadget to carry around in your backpack.
The biggest problem: cost.
iPad pros are extremely expensive, costing anywhere from $700 to $1000 depending on the model.
While iPad pros are getting all the hype, many people are unaware of the iPad 6 (2018) and 7 (2020), both of which support the Apple pencil.
I, like many, was pretty skeptical about converting…
College students and even high school students nowadays face a lot of pressure to land internships for the summer — especially those in tech-related fields.
However, many computer science students come into college with hardly any programming experience. Moreover, landing a tech internship is not easy — especially if you’re a freshman or sophomore in college.
Adding onto the already difficult process of landing an internship, COVID-19 has swept the earth and many people have been left with rescinded offers, hiring freezes, and no summer internship.
What I want to emphasize in this article is, however, that it’s totally OK…
