Today we are discussing an intriguing story of a learner who started to code in his sixth grade. Transforming from a curious coding student to becoming a Software Engineer at CoinDCX with guidance from Career Camp, an online coding Bootcamp by Coding Ninjas.
How did you start coding?
I have been programming since class 6 when we first had LOGO and COBOL in our curriculum. The power to communicate with the computer was something that I’ve found fascinating since then.
Right from coding patterns with number and stars to developing and hosting a website, it has been an exceptional journey. From learning about Data structures and algorithms to those long frustrating debugging sessions, it all feels worth it as my products are being used by millions of people.
How did you come across Coding Ninjas and its Career Camp?
The most interesting part undoubtedly was when I learnt about competitive coding in my third year of college and discovered this awesome community to hone in one’s problem-solving skill.
Competitive coding at times felt daunting and it was during one of these times that I found Coding Ninjas’ Competitive coding course. It was a brilliantly curated course with amazing teachers and helpful Teaching Assistants.
I was frequent on their website to solve their daily challenge and look for discounted courses and one of these times I spotted the Career Camp, an online coding bootcamp.
I didn’t think twice and gave the entrance exam and luckily got accepted for the programme.
What did you like about this coding bootcamp?
It was during this programme that I achieved a rounded up resume which is important for the placement at any product-based company. Another fact that I liked about the programme was that they not only focused on the student’s learning; but also provided personalised and undivided attention during the placement rounds.
Technical Interview Rounds
- Online Exam that included MCQs and Coding questions.
- First Technical Round: Focused on data structures and algorithms with a few questions on web development.
- Second Technical Round: Live coding question which required to create a server that consumes data from an API and later processes it.
- Third Technical Round: Real-world problem-solving questions along with some cultural fit questions.
“Soon after clearing all the technical interview rounds, I was offered a full-time position as a Software Engineer at CoinDCX at a CTC of 11LPA,” informed Pal.
Pal used to revise several topics in Data Structures and Algorithms topics during the weekend while working on the projects during the weekdays.
Below is the list of projects that he has worked on.
- A social media website loaded with all the essential features that characterize it. The domain has been purchased by Pal himself and is hosted in AWS.
- An end-to-end application with complete authentication forgot password, notifications, etc features for tenants to sign up and list their properties for renters.
- This is a movie dashboard, which was my first React.JS project hosted in Firebase.
