in reply to (OT) Interview questions -- your response?

Time for another "interview question" post ... we're also interested in their programming knowledge. I've been somewhat disappointed with some of their answers, ...

If you're trying to extract a lot of info out of relatively short interview, consider the approach I sketch out in On Interviewing Candidates. It's a technique that dives in from a higher level, exposes thinking, and is less sensitive to false negatives if a candidate doesn't happen to see the trick in a trick questions. It also gets you to a point where you can say "now, show me code".

The risk of relying soley on programming problems is that you'll get false negatives if you catch someone on a bad day.
