re: Embrace How Random the Programming Interview Is VIEW POST


The interview process is completely terrible across so many companies. I think more people should stand up and try to change it. Whiteboard interviews came around the same time the whiteboard was invented. It's fake. No one can code fluently on a whiteboard - it's out side of the programmers natural environment.
And these stupid riddles - ugh.

Now with the rise of bootcamps, the line in the job description "4 year degree or equivalent work experience" is scaring a lot of perfectly qualified people away.

End rant.
But I completely agree Ben - You don't know what's going to happen, and you shouldn't hold back in fear. If it's an opportunity you're excited about, apply and prepare the best you can.
