    which language is easier to learn data structures

    I can strongly relate to video. However, One must admin the fact that it is much easier for an IITian to study software engineering compared to someone from a non-IIT. IIT allows students to take CS courses as minors and electives, provides amazing peer groups and coding clubs. I think appreciation should ideally be given to non-IIT folks who get into tech industry. I am a software engineer who studied Metallurgy from an average(below?) college. Currently, I hold offers from some big tech giants with great pay (not as good as TRC though), and based on my experience, being a non-IITian makes it 10x tougher.

    Comparing Electrical to Meta, A lot of CS companies allow Electrical dept to sit for placements, guess how many companies allow Meta students in non-IIT. ZERO!

    Question was how to get into Microsoft as an outsider? He explained everything apart from that…….Not in every clg Microsoft comes let alone shortlist based on resume or CGPA.
