Preparing myself

As I got serious about preparing for this journey, I started viewing some resources that I already had at hand and one of them was reading Gergely Orosz work over at https://blog.pragmaticengineer.com and there were several articles that have been immensely helpful:

  1. https://blog.pragmaticengineer.com/things-ive-learned-transitioning-from-engineer-to-engineering-manager/
  2. https://blog.pragmaticengineer.com/system-design-interview-an-insiders-guide-review/
  3. https://blog.pragmaticengineer.com/preparing-for-the-systems-design-and-coding-interviews/

From there I’ve already purchased https://www.manning.com/books/grokking-algorithms and https://www.crackingthecodinginterview.com/ to begin preparing. I’ve already started going through “grokking algorithms” and (so far) it’s a breezy read that is very good at helping understand the content. I’ve posted my sample code related to the work there at https://github.com/mistarheeOG/PreparingForMyNextStop/tree/main/GrokkingAlgorithmsCodeSamples (it’s all in C#/.Net).
