I am interviewing for a job where the requirements are for...

UX practice with UI and Javascript expertise

I am expecting questions perhaps about MVC, maybe some specific frameworks, like backbone, yui, or jQuery UI.

Are there any good resources to prepare me for the interview? Any obvious things I should look into beforehand?

Yes, I am aware of Stack Overflow. Thanks. That's great... however, I would really like some more general information. –  Billy Moon Apr 4 '13 at 11:57
Something to consider is that the UX is the encompassing body of which the UI is a piece of. The questions may have nothing to do with technical tools used during implementation but more abstract/debatable approaches to arriving at a product with a positive UX for the customer. –  Aaron McIver Apr 4 '13 at 14:06
@AaronMcIver thanks. So I might expect more questions about making an app work on various platforms/devices for example? Do you have any good resources (besides wikipedia) that go over this broadly? –  Billy Moon Apr 4 '13 at 14:17
@BillyMoon I don't unfortunately. You can always check out ux.stackexchange.com though. –  Aaron McIver Apr 4 '13 at 14:33

If the interview is for JS experts I would expect questions like this:

- How do you work with javascript as if it was OOP?
- How do you test? How do you automate it?
- How do you make inheritances in JS?
- What is an observer, give an example of how/when to use it in JS?
- What is the difference between apply and call?
