Testimonials (A word from our certified programmers)

Preparing for the exam was a perfect learning experience. The learning resources and the practice problems on the platform are extremely helpful in learning new concepts. All the questions in the exam were creative and fun to solve.
Being an experienced developer, I regularly try to keep learning to program. Giving this exam has been a good learning experience for me. When I took the foundation exam the first time, I failed but then I did prepare myself better and now I have cleared the Advanced level exam.

Why Data Structures and Algorithms?


It’s the foundation of Computer Science.

Being a good programmer is more than knowing a programming language. It’s about understanding DSA, and solving problems efficiently. DSA is integral to all computer science technologies, be it software development, blockchain, AI and machine learning, or high-performance computing


Helps you crack interviews at top tech companies.

DSA based assessments are a part of the first level assessment for most leading companies. Knowing the optimal ways to solve a problem can save millions of dollars when at scale - a quality that organisations value.


Helps you solve complex problems efficiently.

Complex real-world problems and problems of scale require optimal solutions. A sound understanding of DSA is conducive to solving complex problems of scale.
