Good article. Do you think algorithm platforms like hackerrank, project euler, and leetcode are important as well for recruiters? Thanks for sharing.

Hackerrank etc... are terrible, they measure nothing that really matters.

Companies use them anyway :(

This platforms are not for measuring anything.
Nobody will never make a decision based only on this platforms. They are serving as a plus to your CV.
And they show that you are working on your skills and can not only write typical code, but also solve challenging tasks.

Thank you!
Yes, they are also important. But:

They may be not very important for HR (many of them didn't know what is that) but will be a plus on tech interview.
As I know, in big companies amount of passed tasks on Hackerrank and LeetCode are a very big plus (I mean, not 2-3 passed tasks, but 100-200 etc).

So yeah, you can also add this information. Especially, in social media.
