Let’s be honest, most developers don’t love having to write code as part of an interview process. Some have even threatened to quit the business over it. But it’s not going to change any time soon. So, if you’re serious about getting a job, you need to understand how to succeed at these interviews. I’m here to help. We’re going to go over what I look for in a coding interview and by the end, you should have a pretty good idea of how to succeed.
Before I start though, I have to say, if a company is going to hire a developer based solely and entirely on a piece of code the developer wrote in an interview, you probably don’t want to work there.
