Hey good point, I agree interviewers should be prepared and know what they want. One thing I would like to disagree is where you mentioned "let us do the technical part". what do you mean by this? Because in my view as a software developer it is not only "build a script with x stack", it goes beyond that, it takes problem solving, use of analysis, planning, etc.

Also, keep in mind a more seasoned developer will always take into account testing, IMO I rarely see a practical interview that requires a unit test, but it is not a reason to "take off points", as an interviewer I would even be opposed to using a "points" system...
