Sharpen your Axe

Use Lab Exercises, Projects, Coding Competitions, and Hackathons as opportunities to practice and apply your programming skills in real-world scenarios. Monitor and share your performance with Ace Hacker Dashboard.

Exercises in Go

To augment your proficiency in Go programming, you will be regularly challenged with various assignments like coding challenges, algorithmic puzzles, trick logical, analytical, and mathematical problems - designed to enable you to think creatively and outside the box.

Expect 4 levels of difficulty in these assignments:

  • Beginner: Exercises that test your understanding of the subject.
  • Intermediate: Exercises that add new and thought-provoking information to the subject.
  • Advanced: Exercises that are intended to challenge you.
  • Expert: Exercises that are extremely difficult by comparison with most others.

Projects in Go

The projects are designed to ensure that you not only understand the theoretical concepts of Go Programming but also gain hands-on experience in applying those concepts to real-world scenarios. You’ll be required to collaborate as a team to attempt some projects while working as a Lone Wolf / individual contributor on others.

  • Four Cornerstone projects that will reinforce in you the strong foundational knowledge of Go Programming Language.
  • Two Keystone projects will be more challenging, building on the knowledge you have gained through the Cornerstone projects.
  • One Capstone project, which will be the culmination of your learning experience in this course.

Competitions in Go

Competitions and Hackathons are a great way to reinforce your learning and to challenge you to apply your skills to real-world scenarios. By participating in these events, you will gain practical experience and develop your problem-solving skills. You will be participating in a variety of events, including but not limited to:

  • Sprint Coding Competitions
  • Marathon Hackathons
  • Catch-the-Flag (CTF) challenges
  • War Games

In some competitions, you will collaborate as a team, which will aid you in developing your teamwork skills. In other competitions, you will participate as a Lone Wolf, which will challenge you to think independently and to rely on your own skills and knowledge.

Ace that Coding Interview

Crack the Coding Interview with Go

As a part of this course, you’ll learn to crack a coding interview with Go Lang. You’ll be thoroughly trained using:

  • Mock Interviews: We’ll simulate the pressure and format of a real coding interview, allowing you to practice and improve you technical, communication, and presentation skills under similar conditions.
  • Through Whiteboarding, you’ll learn to visually represent your thought process on a physical or a digital whiteboard.
  • We put a lot of emphasis on you having a strong understanding of Data Structures, Algorithms, and Algorithm Analysis to efficiently solve complex problems and optimize solutions during a coding interview. which are key factors that interviewers evaluate to assess a candidate’s technical competence.
  • You’ll learn how to handle Impossible Questions & Kobayashi Maru situations which are essential in a coding interview to show adaptability, creativity, and resilience under pressure.
  • Learn to solve Algorithmic, and Mathematical and Puzzles using Go Programming Language and develop a creative and analytical mindset, logical reasoning, and problem-solving skills that are crucial in cracking a coding interview.
