Hi, there. Recently, I got to interview developers for the first time and really enjoyed the experience. I will post a how-to on dev.to next week!
I'm not sure of the type of interview you want to do (I went with live coding). Regardless, I think it's great to lay down the format of your interview at the beginning and get a nod from your candidate.
For example, I said,
"The format of my interview is as follows. For the first 5-10 minutes, I will ask you questions about yourself. Then, I have 3 coding problems for you. Ideally, each takes 15-20 minutes. Finally, you get to ask me questions for the last 5-10 minutes. Does that sound all right with you?"
I really like the idea to lay down the format of interview beforehand. Looking forward to your post!
