Recently on Google a separate page has appeared , which shows the courses and tools for online education, that necessary to know for all the engineers and programmers.
Passage of educational programs does not guarantee a job at Google, as the company said in a separate footnote. But it is very interesting to know what courses according to Google every self-respecting programmer and engineer must pass.
The list of courses in the original you can find here.
Recommendations on the education
- Go through the introductory course of Computer Science: Udacity, Coursera.
- Learn how to program at least one OOP language: C ++, Java, Python:
For beginners: Coursera – Programming training, MIT course on Java, Google course on Python , Coursera course on Python.
