In my recent job change I had a lot of interviews. A few of these were technical interviews. In the development field some companies attack the technical interview in a different way. I can see the value of asking certain questions with Junior Programmers. I have looked at some resumes that screamed I just copied these technologies off the web. I always only list a technology that I have used a lot. If I have just used something once I wouldn’t reference it. I interviewed with Source Allies a local consulting company. They made you rank your level of proficiency from 1 to 10. Ten was if you have written a book on it. I thought that was good criteria as people can overstate their expertise in an interview.
I have been developing Java programs for over ten years and this simple Java question through me for a loop. “What is the difference between a Java class and an object?” I thought on that one and came up with an answer that I don’t think was right. I looked it up later and the class is the definition or code and the object is the instance of the class.
Have you been stumped lately?
