Joel on Interviewing

Joel on Software - The Guerrilla Guide to Interviewing

This is such an amazing post. The topic being the same as my previous post on this blog Interviews - Fact and Opinion. What I call skill (probably incorrectly), is what he calls aptitude; and what I call specialized knowledge is what he calls skill. Otherwise, Joel puts it far more eloquently that I ever could.

There one thing that I don't agree with him though:
- The 5 lines-of-code limit. I would like to see the programmer doing proper error checking and want to see how he organizes his program.

I should start using some of the stuff he says in my interviews too. Thanks Joel!
