Geek of the month – August 2017
Testimonial: If you are stuck in a CS topic or an algorithm problem, you will probably find a solution on GeeksforGeeks, not only will you find a solution rather you will find an efficient solution which has code in C/C++, Java, and Python. Once we get a solution we are relaxed isn’t? How about writing a solution of a problem faced by you? Such that when others encounter the same problem they can get an instant solution with a clean explanation.
GeeksforGeeks provides a platform to share your solution for a problem or approach, while writing I observed that, I use to explore every aspect of a topic such that I can explain it in a simple language. Thank to GeeksforkGeeks for providing me an opportunity to write, if you want to learn and share your knowledge then you are at a right place.

Geek of the month – July 2017
Testimonial: After working as a summer intern here, I realized that it is a dream organization not just for the readers and students, but also for the contributors as well. Right from the assistance that one gets here while working, to learning new topics and then writing articles on those topics, it is a highly experience-gaining and knowledge-acquiring process, where you learn and write at each and every step. One thing that I realized during this internship is that it takes a whole lot of efforts to explain something than just knowing it. So, this is one thing where I feel I have made a lot of progress.
Overall, it was an excellent journey working as an intern here and will keep contributing in the future as well.

Geek of the month – March 2017
Testimonial : I being the “Problem Setter and Technical Content Writer” on GFG extend my gratitude to the entire team for the opportunity, I have been provided. While working on such an incredible platform all my mental horizons have been exposed to a level much beyond my expectations. It has given me an exposure to the treasure house of knowledge about Data Structures, Algorithms and many more topics. While going through the incomparable list of articles, I have really developed my mind in a very healthy manner. I had a phobia of Programming when I initially started coding. Then I listen about GFG in my college and as soon as I started going through the site, Programming now seems to be a Cake Walk. The unbeatable and wisely planned Practice Set really do the magic, you develop your ideology and start thinking in a much logical way. Once you have practiced enough on GFG, you not only master the problems but can also solve the problems in a much more optimized manner.
Advice to Contribuotrs: I encourage beginners to come forward, gain knowledge through GFG and become a part of it and enrich themselves and others by sharing knowledge. Do refer the priceless and extremely beneficial ballots of articles, programs and Geek Quiz on GFG, that will surely help you in setting the strong base for coding.

Geek of the month – November 2016
Testimonial: GeeksforGeeks provides an incredible platform for learning and sharing code. Diligently structured contents, meticulously designed quizzes and incomparable practice set are few things that have helped GeeksforGeeks to stand out. Its credibility can be appraised by the fact that it’s referred by both geeks and wanna-be geeks. GeeksforGeeks follows a remarkable way of solving problems. It first takes naïve or basic approach to solve the problem and then moves towards more optimized and comprehensive approach. This not only helps one in getting hold of the topic but also demonstrate the power of optimization and I, for one, believes that optimization is the real game here.
At last, do refer to GeeksforGeeks as it offers a plethora of codes and articles, which will help you in building a solid coding foundation. Happy coding!

Testimonial for GeeksForGeeks : According to me GeeksforGeeks is a platform for a person from where he/she can start it’s journey very smoothly. To learn things deeply one should start from the zero level , it has to start from the basics and GFG is the best place for those people who actually wants to learn new things , who actually wants to enhance their technical skills and who wants to compete with others in technical aspects. GFG provides all fundamental material of technical subjects using which students can prepare well for their interviews. GFG has also provided online coding platform through which students can solve as many coding problems to make themselves good in coding area and the best thing about GFG is that it has divided the coding problems according to the levels likes school level , basic level , easy level , medium level , hard level which organizes the things together and in a well defined sequence to get started . GFG provides all possible solution starts from Naive approach to best optimized solution for any problem , so people get to know many solutions for a single problem. All the content writers provides well explained articles , in which each line of code and algorithm is clearly explained to the best possible way. The best part about GeeksforGeeks is that it also focuses on other Computer Science fundamentals like OS, DMBS, CN which are also a crucial part of an interview.
I want to thanks GeeksforGeeks for making such an awesome element for preparation. What I am today is just because of GeeksForGeeks , it gave me everything which i wanted to prepare myself. I got placed in “Opera Solutions” and credit goes to GeeksForGeeks.
Advice to Contributors: New contributors should provide fresh content in easy to understand language so that everyone from beginner to expert can understand it easily. They should also give some interesting questions based on the articles so that users can understand the concepts completely. They should write articles according to the beginner’s point of view.

Geek of the month – June 2016
Advice to new contributors: According to me what makes G4G different from all the other websites is their articles. You won’t find even a single website other than G4G that regularly publishes articles. But here you will find articles of all kinds ranging from the most basic ones to some of the most unconventional topics. So, I advice others also to contribute and let’s share the knowledge !Testimonial for GeeksforGeeks: If you are related by any means to Computer Science, then you are in a way related to G4G. Whenever you come across any question/ new concept, you search it on the web and the first link you find will be of G4G. G4G is a hit because of its clean and understandable codes (G4G follows a strict list of rules which you can see here- http://www.geeksforgeeks.org/contribute/article-writing-style/). I would thank every single one who has contributed to it and made it a huge success.

I wish GeeksforGeeks all the best for the future, which, I know is going to be bright!
Advice to Contributors : G4G follows a simple mantra, Learn-Share-Learn. “In teaching others, we teach ourselves” . Contributors work very hard to bring the best out of themselves. My advice to all the contributors out there is to keep working hard and believe in yourselves. Keep the interesting articles simple and easy-to-understand. Make sure that you convey the concepts with help of detailed explanations and more examples.
Advice to new Contributors: New contributors should provide fresh content in easy to understand language so that everyone from beginner to expert can understand it easily. They should also give some interesting questions based on the articles so that users can understand the concepts completely.

Advice to new Contributors: “Each one of us is an intricate, yet simplified strand in this web of programming. Contribute as much as you can. Knowledge is meant to be shared and you never know, with what you may be rewarded and applauded.”
Testimonial: GeeksForGeeks is one of the best sites I have seen. Working on an initiative to help programmers out there in such selfless manner is worth applauding. Also, It has provided platforms to many potential coders to contribute their ideas. The variety of posts ( Question specific, Q&A, Project Ideas, Quiz etc ) has enhanced its reach ability across all domains. It was GfG only which motivated me to make my first extension (GeeksQuiz). Not only for B.Tech, but M.Tech and especially for job-seekers, the site is of much help.
Geek of the month -November 2015
Advice to new Contributors: GeeksforGeeks has always maintained a standard of questions and is all due to collective efforts and contribution of every contributor. Believe in quality than quantity. So keep posting interesting & useful articles, your experiences and help others!!
Testimonial: I was already familiar and quite good with competitive programming but the questions asked in interviews and those in competitive programming challenges are not completely similar. GeeksforGeeks provided me the perfect environment to practice a variety of algorithms and very standard interview questions, that were both challenging and interesting. When you sit for an interview, apart from programming, majority of questions are asked on C/C++/Java/OS/Networking/OOPS and several other topics.G4G has a large number of useful articles on these topics all setup in a well-structured manner that helped me to get my skills from novice to an advanced level. Overall, G4G helped preparing me and many of pals in cracking the written as well as face-to-face technical interviews and landing at very good companies. I thank and appreciate the team to provide such an awesome platform to sharpen my skills and enhance my knowledge. I would recommend this site to everyone who is planning to go for technical interviews. A word of advice to my fellow mates – being consistent is very important and try implementing your own code before jumping to solutions (just reading the solutions and jumping on to next questions is not enough).
Thank you GeeksforGeeks!!
