I'd like to thank you for what you guys have created. I'm an avid follower of your videos. Your material gave me the extra edge at the interviews along with my core skills. I'm now happily employed at one of the core teams at Apple.

BEN! I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for making videos explaining these concepts in a very clear manner! I can confidently talk trees, traversals, backtracking and dp all thanks to you! AND on top of that I managed to land a job at Google!! Just 3 months ago, I was struggling with leetcode and nearly came to the conclusion that I would never make it to a dream company! For all of those out there losing hope, keep grinding! THANK YOU SO MUCH ONCE AGAIN BEN! I WISH I COULD BUY YOU A BEER!

Hey, I'm from your platform: and just want to give you a positive result I got an intern offer from facebook! My on campus interview consisted of 3 LC easies like add two strings with a really great interviewer, so I think I got really lucky. I just want to say thanks. I don't know how many hours of video of you I've watched over the past year (non-creepily loll, how many times I felt lost but was relieved to Google a problem, and see Back To Back SWE come up, I was saved knowing you had a video covering a concept or problem. Whenever I was tired or overwhelmed studying, you gave me that energy and enthusiasm I needed to get into the problem, so thanks.

Hi! I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for your videos. Just a few months ago I was panicking because I felt so unprepared with Leetcode and prepping for interviews, so instead of bingewatching TV shows, I went through all of your videos, which are so engaging and well explained. I just landed Facebook for next summer, and I want you all to know I couldn't have done it without you! (literally--I knew how to do my questions because you went over the intuition so clearly). Keep up the awesome work!

Ben, thank you for all your efforts! I got an offer from Google and your videos were the best resource in my preparation. Especially love how you first state your initial thoughts even though it might lead to an inefficient solution and then improve from there!

I just got off the phone with Google and I'm going to on-sites. May not be huge, right? But this is my first ever technical screen, despite having 4 years of experience, and a huge thank you is in order! Honestly, I got a strong recommends from a Google tech lead; that couldn't have happened without you.

Hey what's up! I actually just got past the HC at Google! I spent about 5 weeks almost exclusively studying your videos and doing problems on my own. Went to the onsite and did pretty well. Thanks again!

Thank you thank you THANK YOUUUU!!! I really wanted to tell you sooner, cause you were there for me while I was studying. But Microsoft wants me!!!


I started my interview process in Jan and April/11, did the onsite. I studied for one full month lots of problems and soon found your videos here. I just got off the phone that due to some visa issues (cause I'm from South America), they can't give me the position in the US but there's a team in Vancouver that wants me and they are waiting for some input before they can process the offer.I am beyond happy, cause thanks to you, WE made possible my dream to be able to work on a big company.


I knew I had it on me, and you helped me prepare for it. So this is our success. We made it!. Keep up the good work and if you ever need help in something, please let me know. I'll be happy to help other people to achieve their dreams. DESPACITO IS GOING TO MICROSOFT!!! I am beyond happy :) Gracias!

I recently found your videos and soon later applied to Microsoft on a whim even though I didn't feel prepared. They gave me two chances to do a technical for screen for two different roles. I failed the first one, and miraculously passed the second while using the free wifi from WholeFoods to take the call.


Anyway, I went on-site in September and got tripped up on level order traversal on the last interview of the day because I didn't finish all the videos you guys have. Somehow they gave me a verbal offer today, and even though for family reasons I can't move to Seattle, I just never thought that I could even get an offer before your videos.


They made a huge difference for me, if nothing else, it boosted my confidence. And hey, Microsoft thinks I'm employable.


Even though In almost two decades older than you, your videos helped me realize everything is possible even at an 'advanced' age. Keep up the great work.


p.s. - not sure if you root for your hometown team, but the wizards are gonna be terrible this NBA season.

Just wanted to reach out and thank you for everything you've been doing to help engineers do well in interviews. I'll be starting a new job at Jet.com that I'm really excited about and your videos along with CTCI and leetcode were the main resources that helped me get there. I appreciate all the time and effort you put into this and you're definitely positively impacting a lot of people with this. Best of luck on your academy idea and future educational pursuits, certainly be using your YouTube channel again in the future.

I have been prepping for interviews for the past 2 months with your videos, and I've received and accepted a full-time job offer from Twitter at the Boulder, Colorado office 2 weeks ago and will be at the SF headquarters for my first week on the job in July for on-boarding. Thank you for your videos, they have been super helpful and encouraging, and I probably wouldn't have gotten this job without your guidance and teaching.
