About the Presentation
CS interviews are a different breed from other interviews and, as such, require specialized skills and techniques. Cracking the Coding Interview will teach you how to prepare for coding interviews, what top companies like Amazon really look for, and how to tackle the toughest programming and algorithm problems. This talk will be technical, and will include stories from the speaker's extensive interviewing experience as well as a live "demo" of how to tackle a technical problem.
Signed copies of McDowell's Cracking the Coding Interview book will on sale after the talk.
