C++ is a many faceted language. Diving deep into any one aspect would probably require more than an hour, but yet during an interview we are trying to evaluate somebody’s skills in less than that. What are the questions you should be asking when you are interviewing and when you are being interviewed? What should you prepare for to handle talking about C++ on both sides of the table. We will talk about some techniques and tips that you can use to conduct an effective interview and to be an effective interviewee.

This is a complicated area with no clear answers, so my hope is this will be an open discussion on techniques that we're trying, and maybe something you can incorporate into your future interviews.
