💻 The JavaScript Technical Interview Workbook (400+ questions)

Introduction

Hi devs especially junior devs! For the past 5 months I've been super focused on writing a technical interview guide for juniors who want to break into the web-development industry. Since a solid grounding in JavaScript is paramount to clearing interviews focused on web applications, I wanted to write a guide that would help junior developers learn and practice at the same time.

Why?

I've been a coding bootcamp instructor for the past 4 years, and some of the questions that I've been asked concerning job opportunities and employment are:

  1. Will I get a job after this?
  2. How many projects do I need to complete in order to start interviewing?
  3. How can I test my JavaScript knowledge?
  4. How should I prepare for technical interviews? What will I be asked?

Circumventing life issues to get employed!

The best way for junior developers to circumvent the issue of not having enough experience/projects and still get employed is to do plenty of coding exercises (including on old and newer ES features) without having done whole projects on them.

This demonstrates a practical understanding of core and advanced JavaScript concepts.

Often people have to balance multiple things while they learn to code including part-time jobs. Therefore, they're on a time crunch and may or may not be able to commit to doing projects. I've faced this with students before. They have committed to learning to code but life just gets in the way.

There are also people who leave everything including employment in order to learn how to code. The more time they spend out of web-dev employment status means the more they dip into their savings and deplete their bank balances.

So this technical guide is focused on circumventing these issues in a practical and straightforward way.

Each section of each chapter has about 70 - 90 coding exercises + underlying theory. The basic premise is that you read a section, practice the coding exercises and then move on to the next section.

Therefore solidifying your base at each step. Moving you from basic to advanced concepts.

No. It's a link re-directing to a landing page.

Thank you to all that have liked and subscribed. A small note, I have updated the curriculum. At this point I am reaching out to hiring managers to get a perspective from the other side of the table. All is on track!
