Jake Simpson on Programming Interviews

January 17, 2008

I’ve just finished reading an excellent article by Linden Labs’ Jake Simpson on programming interviews: Interviewing Programmers – The do’s and don’ts from both sides. Whether you’re interviewer and interviewee, it’s a highly recommended read.

Many of its points apply to designers, too.

    Interesting read.

    I think some of us don’t think far enough ahead sometimes; the goal of just getting an interview can be daunting enough, that simply getting one can be overwhelming. Once we get to that point, all of a sudden it’s, “oh no, what am I going to do when theres a person sitting across from me firing questions away!?”

    So, it’s always nice to get a few pointers so the process goes more smoothly for all involved.

    Outstanding post. It’s always nice to know what people have thought about in the position as an interviewer and interviewee.

    Interviewee: #11, has brightened my Friday.
