I don't know about others but in interviews I can blank on simple things. For instance I had an interview question about detecting patterns in a string and for some reason I just completely forgot about regex. I think interviews are stressful and cause different parts of our brain to go into overdrive leaving less "computing power" for lack of a better term for the actual interview questions. Over time things will be come easy and interviews less stressful which will make it easier.
I was asked about “Dependency injections” but I couldn’t answer it as the term was unfamiliar to me. Later on, when the interviewer explained me what it was, then I realised that I was doing this for a long time without know the name or term.
I feel so stupid!
Don't worry about it! Everyone makes mistakes, just keep learning and improving and it will all fall in line :)
Thank you :)
