  • Have a good sleep beforehand.
  • Try to be calm.
  • Always be honest and say "I don't know" if you really don't know.
  • Try always to have a smile and be friendly during the interview, this will grant you some points.
  • They are trying to see you as you will be working with them as a colleague so show them that you will add value to them.
  • Don't push yourself to the best solution from the first try. Always do the simplest solution that come to your mind.
  • Don't be silent. Think out loud this will help you & them as well so much.

These are great! I especially love "Don't be silent" - this has always been quite difficult for me in interviews.

For me this is the most powerful tip for tech interviews in general.
Good luck with your next interview then :)
