Continue on the technical part of interview. I am a full stack developer and here I answered some questions about network, REST, Spring and React frameworks.
Continue on the technical part of the interview. Here I answered some questions about programming languages, object oriented programming, design patterns and coding culture.
After being in both sides of the interviews I want to share some questions. There are thousands or milions of different questions or forms of questions, but these are really common ones. In the next four posts I will share Java/full stack develper interview questions and here I start with pure Java.
Dear software developer, have you ever felt useless, lonely or irrelevant?
Post your CV on the internet. You will feel like a rock star when your fans recruiters want to reach out and get your attention. Interviewing is a part of our career development. When you prepare for an interview – you study and learn new (and repeat old good) stuff, meet companies and people. But… it’s tiring, time consuming and sometimes annoying process. I want to make our lives easier and share some tips about interviewing. I focus, of course, on software developer’s position.
New Year’s(NY) resolutions – start doing sport, give up smoking and give up giving resolutions. People fail their resolutions faster than a night bus driver reaches his destination. Blue Monday, I first heard about this day once arrived to UK. This is the most depressing day of a year. The scientists created a formula which considers time after Christmas, all money spending and NY resolutions failure. The result – depressing Blue Monday in mid January.
There was a second world war in my stomach, fingers were melting and all body in sweat. That’s how I felt for the last hours before my performance. But I did it!!! And now I’m honestly proud of myself.
Dropping yourself to awkward and uncomfortable situations makes you grow and improve. If you are afraid of height – do a parachute jump, afraid of public speaking – do a comedy standup, afraid of snakes – don’t live in a jungle or just caress a python. I did it!!! Not a python – a comedy standup!!! I am going to do more gigs, because I really enjoyed it…
What is a design pattern(DP)? What DPs do you know? Describe me the design pattern X, please. These are the questions you can hear in many technical interviews for object-oriented(OO) developer positions. I’ve heard many opinions for and against DP, but I think this is a must to know for a developer. It is not necessary to know all of them or even know implementation details by heart. It’s enough to know what the DP is about and what it actually does, and you can google the implementation details when you need it.
It’s been a while since the last post… Yeah, that’s summer. I hope you enjoyed yours as well. I had a roadtrip through Europe, was exploring UK and London, meeting hundreds of new interesting people, attending talks and courses to improve myself, “Guns and Roses” gig, I spent many weekends travelling to my home country and so on. In fact, I had an exciting summer, which made me forget my work, routine, and… you guys. But this is not a bad thing, rest is a must for all of us.
Persistance and optimism are two main powers which drive me forward. I can spend ages and give more than my best, when finishing everything I’ve started. If something goes wrong, optimism shows me the way, when persistence just keeps repeating me “push yourself” and “don’t give up”. In that case, I end up with a lesson instead of a problem.
Keep smiling and reach better. #ciziunas
