You can not master any of the programming languages without Practice. The common thing that I see among all the expert programmers- they do Practice. Lots of Practice. Practice solving interview coding questions.
The more you practice the better you become in programming.
Programming is a skill best acquired by Practice and Example rather than from Books.
– Alan Turing
For every beginner, it is easy to start reading programming books and gaining theoretical knowledge. But what’s the next?
No one has become a programmer by reading books. You should actually do the programming.
Before going to list out interview coding questions for practice, let me tell you, these are the generic coding questions. You can use these coding questions to challenge yourself and to practice any programming language like Python, C/C++, Java, and all other generic computer languages.

How to Improve Coding Skills?
If you want to improve your coding skills, there is only one way- practice solving coding questions.
If you watch my video where I talked about the 5 things to improve your coding skills, practicing is the first and at the top.
What are the Advantages of Practicing Programming over Reading Programming Books?
Doing programming teaches you many things…
Problem Solving Mindset How are programmers different from others? Because programmers think differently. The real programmer has the best problem-solving mindset. And to make that problem-solving mindset, you need to practice hard.
Building Logic It makes you think. You see the problem, think about it and you build your logic.
Improving Coding Ability Programming is not about memorizing all the programming syntax. It varies from the programming language. It is ok if you forget, you can always Google it. Programming helps you to build your logic. It teaches you – how you can improve your logic or your coding ability.
Thinking Efficiently There can be multiple solutions to a single problem. Practicing programming is also about trying different solutions and choosing the most efficient one.
Preparing for Placement I have curated this list of programming questions for your practice and it will also help you to prepare for coding rounds of any company. Many of the below programming questions have been asked in many placement interview rounds for IT jobs.
Grasping over different Programming topics I have tried out to add the coding questions from each topic.
Understanding Data Structure Real-Time You will never understand the essence and real purpose of data structure reading from the books. Practicing coding questions help you to understand data structure in real-time.
Call-of-Action to Improve Coding Skills
So, if you are serious about programming and want to be a unicorn programmer, here is the call of action for you.
Write a program to calculate Circle Area using the radius.
Find the Factorial of a number using the recursion technique.
Print the Pyramid of numbers using for loops.
Write a program to Find a Maximum of Two Numbers using the conditional operator.
Write a program to Find a Minimum of Two Numbers using the conditional operator.
Write a program that will read a float type value from the keyboard and print the following output. 1) the smallest integer which is not less than the number 2) given the number 3) the largest integer which is not greater than the number
Write a C program to upload the file to another PC connected to the network.
Write a C program to download the file from the network.
These two questions are more related to network programming. If the job profile is related to networking, you have to prepare for such questions. These questions were asked in the Persistent coding interview as per the experience shared by the candidate.
Tips to make the best use of these Interview Coding Questions:
If you want to master any programming language, move to a Linux system for coding practice.
I have mentioned the list of programs you should practice. We are writing a solution for each of the programs listed here. I keep updating this space. You can bookmark this page for anytime reference.
I need your help. You can also write the program for any of the programming questions. Submit your program or even you can send an email to [email protected] (don’t forget to add the description to the program you are sharing). I will publish your article on our portal. Along with your practice, you are helping other programmers.
Make a schedule and challenge yourself to solve n coding questions every day.
Programming Tutorials for Reference
If you want to learn the fundamentals of any of the programming languages, do refer following links for the particular programming tutorial.
If you face any challenges to write a program for any of the mentioned interview coding questions, feel free to discuss them in the comment section. It is all about, how you make the best use of all the resources you have on your plate.
If you put a gun to my head, I will try to remember more coding questions and will add them to this list for you. 😉
I am complete Python Nut, love Linux and vim as an editor. I hold a Master of Computer Science from NIT Trichy. I dabble in C/C++, Java too. I keep sharing my coding knowledge and my own experience on <b>CSEstack.org</b> portal.
