Pros: The coding tests in HackerRank are very difficult and have been the best way that we have found to screen the suitable candidates on deep technical skills, it helps to eliminate first couple of tech interviews.

The tests are very similar to the type of thing that you will find in a coding competition. And these are real coding test in that they compile the code and evaluation the solution automatically. This make is very easy for a non-technical manager to evaluate a highly technical candidate.

They also do have multiple choice questions, pared coding and other types of tests which we do not use but probably are useful for some situations. Really the reason we like it is that we have not found anything that is able to evaluate candidates on their ability to solve very hard technical problems.

Cons: I would say that one of the issues is that to make it work effectively I think you need to either create your own coding tests or get them to create a custom test just for your company. Get a custom test developed by the HackerRank team, It costs something to do this.

The tests that are public and available to everyone on the HackerRank site are probably searchable on Google which makes it a bit too easy.

Overall: Definitely in the right direction and one should always go for it without a second thought . A piece of advice - Do code on other platforms too as it will be wise not to invest all your eggs in one basket .

Pros: - Free, fun way to learn a lot of different important coding concepts.

- A great next step from Codeacademy. The challenges appeal to people of all skill levels, the lessons help beginners, and the forums are a great place to learn more.

- Online code processing is fast, allows for own user input

- To be honest, the design is also quite good. A lot of how a "challenge" goes is dependent on how the author writes it, but I find a lot of them to be designed well.

Cons: - There is definitely a learning curve if you've never read from stdin. That isn't a big deal, but is definitely a weird concept to grasp if you've only done Codeacademy tutorials.

- Certain algorithms are hard to figure out to the point that I stop learning and would prefer to view the answer (as to actually learn how it works). This is difficult at times - which is not always bad, but definitely has its downsides

Overall: Coding reputability, practice, and a great coding community.

Pros: Questions are present for all level of candidates. They are also sorted according to various categories for easy access. Also, the competitions are good way to get to know one's current skill level with respect to coders all over the world.

Cons: Sometimes, the editorials are not easy to understand. Other than that, the site is amazing and is of great help to students and job seekers, particularly.

Pros: HackerRank has a huge bank of pre-set questions (both multiple choice and coding) to choose from. We like this software because in addition to assessments, they also offer a sourcing platform and a live coding option. It's 3 different products in one to give you an advantage in a very competitive war for tech talent. The best part is that you don't need to know how to code to assess talent. You will, however, get your engineering employees involved and they will appreciate being part of the process.

Cons: Some of the questions are worded confusingly but you can always edit any preset questions. Your success with the platform is only as good as how you select your assessments so involvement from your organization is important.

Pros: The HackerRank platform supports almost all the programming languages that you can imagine. The interface is really neat and code editor has basic features

Cons: Formatting code in certain languages is a nightmare, especially in python if you have not setup the editor configuration correctly.

Overall: The platform has good variety and number of problems to practice which are at the same time very competetive

Pros: It has different sections, each section has many problems to solve which categorize according to the difficulty level.

Rank and badge progress, it really encourages to open this platform and start coding.

Each and every problem makes you read a concept (DS, Algo or core maths), but you are not solving a single problem, actually each roblem makes you read a single concept.

Cons: Opportunities, the platform makes you able to compete for any hiring challenge but lacks to provide any. However one's profile page with good badges is able to tell any techie how good you are in coding and concepts.

Overall: It's good and always fun to practise on HackerRank.

It really helped me evolve as a programmer.

Pros: The best user interface among all its competitors there is. Good set of questions properly seperated by tags.

Cons: The questions in the graph theory section are a little vague. I will struggle to find any other faults in this site as it is so much perfect.

The best platform to code on. Helped me take my skills to the next level.

Pros: HackerRank has large number of tutorials available for different languages and technologies. Also it has a good number of challenging questions set to test our skill. I have learnt many things from HackerRank.

Cons: The only thing I dislike about HackerRank is it's online compiler for some languages it is outdated because during one competition I wasted some time to learn that the compiler has no library file which I was trying to use. Though I got support and resolved my problem.

Overall: As a software engineer I have to keep my self updated with new programming language with trend and I can simply learn it from HackerRank also it's coding challenge is useful as well.

Pros: 1. Hard but interesting challenges for training skills. 2. Contests, where you can see your real level of knowledge. 3. Good gamification - scoring,ranking and leaderbords. And, sure, opportunity to find a job of your dreams!

Cons: As for me, there are too low pushing level. I'm very busy man, but sometimes have a lot of free time which I can spend for training my skills. But often I forget about this. So more agressive pushing would not be superfluous

Overall: I train my programming skills in free time, because my current work is about management not coding.

Kudos to the Developers!

Comments: I have been a user of the developer edition of the HackerRank product for about a couple of months now, and I have to say that there is something about this platform which sets it apart from its major market competitors.

Keep up the good work, and if I had to point towards one con, which is not a con per se, it would be this:

The progress graph of a developer should be updated after every challenge she/ he completes, not just after she/ he participates in a competition.
