New: Rocking Your Technical Interview with David McCarter interview on dotNetRocks!

Here’s What People Are Saying About This Session

  • Chris S. – I wanted to thank you for your DVD on Technical Interviews. I attended your presentation at Desert Code Camp in 2012 and purchased the DVD. Your guidance on how to handle technical and even non-technical questions gave me great support and confidence going into a round of interviews I had. That confidence translated into performance, as I was able to receive attractive offers from multiple companies, and I was able to make an important move that has been a life-altering, exciting change for me.
  • Bill W. – Good information! I had forgotten to study the technical questions, did that this morning and I felt I aced my technical interview just now  Thanks Dave!
    • GO now!!! Dave is why I have the best job I have ever had!!!
  • Daniel I. – Great presentation because you made me realize that I’m not doing enough to better my career! You struck a chord when you said we should keep our resume up-to-date and on-hand at all times. Thanks for helping me realize something I should have been doing a long time ago. Your DVD is very helpful. The fact that you have hiring managers and recruiters giving interviewing tips is great. I’m glad I bought it!
  • Ken – Thanks for the great presentations – really enjoyed all your presentations at the code camp, learned a lot about interviewing and gained a lot of insight into how recruiting process works.

This is a companion session to the “Rock Your Coding Standards” that takes writing better code to the next level. Do you enjoy receiving bug tickets from QA?
