With up-to-date advice on how to succeed in programming job interviews, this book discusses what interviewers need to hear, approaching phone screens with non-technical recruiters, examining common interview problems and tests, demonstrating your skills verbally, in contests, on GitHub, and more.
Ace technical interviews with smart preparation
Programming Interviews Exposed is the programmer’s ideal first choice for technical interview preparation. Updated to reflect changing techniques and trends, this new fourth edition provides insider guidance on the unique interview process that today's programmers face. Online coding contests are being used to screen candidate pools of thousands, take-home projects have become commonplace, and employers are even evaluating a candidate's public code repositories at GitHub—and with competition becoming increasingly fierce, programmers need to shape themselves into the ideal candidate well in advance of the interview. This book doesn't just give you a collection of questions and answers, it walks you through the process of coming up with the solution so you learn the skills and techniques to shine on whatever problems you’re given.
This edition combines a thoroughly revised basis in classic questions involving fundamental data structures and algorithms with problems and step-by-step procedures for new topics including probability, data science, statistics, and machine learning which will help you fully prepare for whatever comes your way.
Technical jobs require the skillset, but you won’t get hired unless you are able to effectively and efficiently demonstrate that skillset under pressure, in competition with hundreds of others with the same background. Programming Interviews Exposed teaches you the interview skills you need to stand out as the best applicant to help you get the job you want.

Refreshingly well-written. Extremely well-written. Every paragraph makes a cohesive and relevant point. No filler. The core chapters review essential comp sci stuff you may (or may not) already have a handle on. But what I particularly liked were the other chapters (1-4, 16-17, 19) full of advice dealing with the interview process and in particular those pesky non-comp-sci questions!
