In this episode we talk to Paulo Elias, for­mer­ly from IDEO, about his expe­ri­ences inter­view­ing for a fron­tend web devel­op­ment posi­tion in 2020.

We talk about the inter­view process, and how much of the focus is on JavaScript, with CSS and HTML as almost an afterthought.

Is this just a thing inside the bub­ble that is Sil­i­con Val­ley, or is it a broad­er shift in the craft of mod­ern web development?

We go on to talk about some of the spe­cif­ic ques­tions asked, the focus on algo­rithms and prob­lem solv­ing, and how get­ting good at inter­view­ing is a skill in and of itself.
