I've been a professional software engineer since 1999, and have worked in a wide range of industries and technologies:

  • Cloud computing on Java
  • Website development in C# and ASP.NET (with a little bit of ASP.NET MVC too)
  • GIS applications in C#
  • Telecoms hardware in VxWorks and C++

...and have used just about every platform!

comment How do you feel about being asked to code during an interview?
A good whiteboard coding exercise should be able to answer several of the points on your list. Pretend you don't understand part of their code and ask them for clarification. Think up bigger examples and ask how they would organise it (clean code). Use an exercise where there's potentially varying performance characteristics - then ask them about the performance of their chosen solution and explore how to change it to improve performance. For the rest of your points - for example, testing, just ask them! The point is a coding exercise is not the ONLY part of the interview.
