Geek of the month – November 2019
Writing for GeeksforGeeks has been a great learning experience. Clean and well-formatted code has become an equal priority along with the functionality of the code. Researching the topic before writing gives one a thorough understanding of the material and opens up the numerous possibilities a problem can be tackled. I have actually learned more web development writing for this site than learning on my own.
This is one of my very first internships and I am grateful for the knowledge and confidence it has given me. I would also like to thank the editorial team and the others involved in managing the website. Cheers!

Geek of the month – October 2019
Testimonial: I would like thank the GfG team for giving me the geek of the month title. I feel amazing recieving this felicitation. So when I started writing articles for geeksforgeeks the main thing I had in my mind was my personal growth in the computer science fundamentals and the joy of giving back to the community what I know. My experience at GfG has been more than this. I have learnt how to express my thoughts more clearly and succinctly. I learnt how to write clean and easy to understand code. My concepts in dynamic programming have definitely got better because of the learning I used to do before writing an article to publish on the GfG website. All this learning with the joy of being able to give back to the computer science student community is simply amazing
I have loved writing high quality articles for geeksforgeeks and would love to continue doing so in the future as well.
Geek of the month – September 2019
Testimonial: I started writing articles on GeeksforGeeks just to try something new. But with the time I realized it’s effect on me. First of all, to write an article on a particular topic one need to be very clear on that topic. That led me to research more about the codes and algorithms and helped me to get a clear understanding on a particular area. Apart from that, I learned to write codes in a beautiful manner, came up with new algorithmic problems and improved myself a little bit after writing every article. And finally earning the “Geek of the Month” title.
Thank you team GeeksforGeeks for giving me so much in a short span of time. I am not going to leave this platform very soon.

Geek of the month – December 2017
Testimonial : Being a Content-Writer and Problem Setter on GFG what I have learnt is that having good programming skills doesn’t make you a good programmer/coder. To be good in this you must have the vision to judge other’s code also i.e. solving issues or removing errors by understanding other’s code is the key point to check yourself. While going through over other user’s code, you will get to know the more tricks and techniques to solve a problem which will help in enhancing your knowledge and you will also get to learn some good writing skills.
“Learn while you write or Write while you learn” is the best thing which GFG is providing to us and also what I like the most.
So, Keep Learning and Keep Writing.
Happy Coding 🙂 Thanks GFG 🙂
Geek of the month – November 2017
Testimonial : As a GFG content writer and final-year student, I had visualized that GFG helps students for both the perspective that reinforces concepts and knowledge, or to prepare for their future placement opportunities. Starting as a beginner, I had explored myself about a wide range of concepts related to DS and algorithm from GFG, which provided me with many different effective problem-solving techniques. In addition to the subjective knowledge and placement preparation, regular training at GFG will certainly improve your approach to competitive programming. The best of GFG that has made a huge impact on me are daily updated articles on the homepage that offer a random but effective level of knowledge for students.
Fly for your dream but make GFG your jet ✈️ 🙂

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 a naïve or basic approach to solve the problem and then moves towards a 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!

GFG provides all fundamental material of technical subjects using which students can prepare well for their interviews. GFG has also provided an 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 the best-optimized solution for any problem, so people get to know many solutions for a single problem. All the content writers provide 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.

Testimonial for GeeksforGeeks: GeeksforGeeks is by far the best platform I have encountered for learning computer fundamentals. The way GeeksforGeeks provides a solution for a problem by gradually going towards the optimal approach by looking all the other possible solutions is just phenomenal. 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. Moreover MCQ’s on Automata Theory and Compiler Design helped me a lot during my college examination.
I would strongly recommend one to refer GeeksforGeeks to build their computer fundamentals and also for their interview preparation.
Advice for contributors:
- Don’t just simply provide the algorithm for the problem, also try to brief the reader how you got to that approach.
- Writing articles can improve your knowledge to a great extent since you will have to study every small detail regarding your article.

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- https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/contribute/article-writing-style/). I would thank every single one who has contributed to it and made it a huge success.

Testimonial for GeeksforGeeks: I have been using GeeksForGeeks from 2010. The resources available on Data Structures and Algorithms is undoubtedly exceptional which helped me in college as well as while preparing for interviews before placements. Even after being in IT industry for about 2 years, I regularly enjoy reading interesting articles here.
For current students, GeeksforGeeks now has a lot to offer including an outstanding Campus Ambassador Program, Paid Internship Opportunities, Placement Opportunities, etc.
With the launch of Practice section a few months back, GFG officially entered into the domain of competitive programming. I regularly use this section and I found the overall interface including the web IDE to be great and easy to use. Cheers to the team!!
Advice for new Contributors: I take GeeksforGeeks as a platform to share knowledge to help fellow geeks. With such a huge number of hits on the website each day, the content gets great viewership. When you contribute at such a level, you need to ensure high quality. This, in turn, gives you the opportunity to improve your knowledge and also your skills as a content writer. It also gives the opportunity to network with fellow contributors and to learn from them as well.
Lastly, I would advise you to keep making contributions, big or small, as we also have a moral duty to give back to the community which gave us so much.
Testimonial: “Wisdom is sharing flowers in our basket and receiving different from others and thereby increasing our worth” and that is what GeeksforGeeks does. When it comes to placements, there is only one name that comes to my mind – GeeksforGeeks. Every IT graduate depends heavily on GeeksForGeeks while preparing for the technical interviews. Not just GeeksforGeeks helped me with my interview preparation; it has taught me several best coding practices that have significantly improved my coding style over the years. And the best part is that GeeksforGeeks is expanding. With various new initiatives like the Campus Ambassador program, G4G is reaching out to more and more students. It is not just limited to DSA/C/C++/Java articles; it is now becoming one of the best resources for a beginner to get started in the world of competitive programming too. We can find a huge collection of interview Experiences of top IT companies. One can also find great Stuff for Aptitude based Puzzles and for GATE preparation.
Thank you once again GeeksforGeeks for providing the awesome platform for preparation.
Advice to new Contributors: GeeksforGeeks provides an excellent platform to know other people’s way of thought. So, in the process, you learn several ways to solve a problem. During our childhood, learning pace is exponential which tends to decrease with age. GeeksforGeeks helps us brush up ourselves and sharpen our mind and it’s time to give something back to GeeksforGeeks.
So keep Contributing and help other geeks!!
Rahul is our Campus Ambassador for LNMIIT, Jaipur.
Testimonial: When it comes to programming, there is no other website which can surpass GeeksforGeeks. Thanks to their talent, GeeksforGeeks has taken off in the search engines like a rocket. In this day and age, it is very difficult to get ahead in the field of Computer Science without the support of gurus like GeeksforGeeks. The collection of articles and questions are superb with excellent explanation and simple solutions. Thank You GeeksforGeeks for providing such a great platform to learn and share knowledge.
Advice to Contributors: Knowledge sharing is synergistic. We each enter into a conversation with a little knowledge and each come away with more knowledge. Knowledge sharing is about “working together”, “helping each other” and “collaboration”.Sharing knowledge is not about giving people something, or getting something from them; it is about creating a learning process.
Believe in “Learn-Share-Learn” and keep Sharing!!
Geek of the month -February 2016
Testimonial : I have been associated with GeeksforGeeks since past 10 months and I’m obsessed with G4G! It’s one of the best sites I’ve ever come across. It is helping people around the globe in achieving their dreams and what else can be better than that ? Its never-ending library has almost all the questions related to programming and a lot of articles are being added daily. Be a novice or a pro, G4G would never cease to amaze you! Need something better? GeeksforGeeks is EXPANDING. With amazing programs like Campus Ambassador , G4G is reaching out to students in their colleges and spreading knowledge. With the QA Forums, one can ask his/her queries and he’ll be answered. practice.geeksforgeeks.org and GeeksQuiz are again one of the biggest steps taken by them. 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.
Testimonial: GFG is a best platform for beginner as well as experienced programmers as It has a much larger collection of questions and articles with easy to understand solutions and It also has very active discussion forum which attaches you to a very large coding community and helps you a lot.
Geek of the month -December 2015
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!!
