Details

This month we will deep dive into tech interviews. We will hear from both Nick Larsen and Sam Lawrence about their experiences from both the interviewer and interviewee perspectives. Then, we will have a mock interview where Nick interviews Sam with a coding challenge.

Nick Larsen (cultureofdevelopment.com (http://cultureofdevelopment.com/)) has worked at Stack Overflow for more than 4 years. While there, he has interviewed over 200 job candidates, and while doing so, has compiled a list of the most important things that they look for (http://cultureofdevelopment.com/blog/2013/03/24/interviews-what-im-thinking-while-im-interviewing-you/), as well as a list of the most common mistakes people make.

Sam Lawrence (samelawrence.com (http://www.samelawrence.com/))is a self-taught programmer who works for StrataCloud as a QA engineer. He has a unique, eye-opening strategy for job interviewing which you'll get to see first-hand. Sam is also a musical fanatic and DJs around town from time to time.
