The EPI Judge is now available at GitHub!

The installation is super-simple - there’s no install! You just download the project, point your IDE/editor to it, and start the code-debug cycle, with instant feedback!

EPI Judge consists of the following:

  • Stub programs for each problem in our book in Python, Java, and C++
  • Test-cases that cover common corner-case and performance bugs
  • A framework for running these tests on your implementation on your machine

The best interview preparation is a combination of hands-on practice over a representative set of problems with quality explanations.

The best way to get this hands-on practice is by developing, running, and debugging programs in the environment you’re most comfortable with, i.e., your own computer and IDE/editor:

  1. It’s a very fast compile-debug cycle,
  2. you have complete control and visibility, both into the internal state and the test data,
  3. you can use the features such as autocomplete, autoformat, linting, definiton lookups, etc., and
  4. you can choose to use version control, to track your own progress, as well as to pull updates.

This screenshot should give you a good idea of what it’s about.

A big shout-out to Viacheslav Kroilov, for applying his exceptional software engineering skills to make EPI Judge a reality.
