A developer preparing for an upcoming interview almost always starts with a Google search.
She would first search the questions — technical ones. Inevitably, this will be an abyss that very few programmers can come out of. It goes on forever, until the dreaded interview day.
There is no opportunity to focus on interview techniques and psychology behind every interview conversation.
Throughout the last 2 years, I wrote quite about programming interview questions, the recruitment secrets, and most importantly — interviewers’ mindsets while interviewing junior and senior programmer candidates.
Here are my most recent pieces:
