The Two Question Code Quiz: How to Interview Programmers Effectively

Speaker: Scott Connerly

First thing I do when walking into an interview is to see if there’s a whiteboard hanging on the wall. If there is, there’s a good chance somebody’s going to ask me to write code on there, and nobody’s gonna get any useful information out of the experience. There's also a good chance somebody’s going to ask me to tell them about a time I handled a difficult situation, and maybe even how I’d move Mount Fuji.

This is a session on how to have meaningful technical interviews and really learn if a candidate will be good for your team, hard skills and soft skills. I will also give away the two question code quiz, explain why these two are valuable, and how to administer them well.
