When it comes to preparing for a coding Interview, graphs and trees are a good start, but they are not enough.
This session would teach you how to talk about projects, code and yourself, in a way that helps interviewers see your worth.

Have you ever written a short and simple function, and added it to your pipeline only to discover it is WAY slower than it should be? Did you know some pandas functions are written in Python and work much faster than others? Python is not known to be the fastest language, but you can be proactive about speeding things up!

While Python is featureful and simple to write, it isn’t known as a fast language. Many of Python’s functions and one-liners have hidden complexity costs. Choosing the wrong ones can slow down your code and those costs definitely add up. For example - popping an item from the end of a list vs from the start of it, or using the “in” operator on a set vs a list. A few seconds running time difference in your local script could mean a few hours time difference on the production pipeline.

If you want to learn about what to look out for, how to overcome these pitfalls and make your code more efficient this is the talk for you.
