About the Speaker


How to Crack the Coding Interview: Skills and Strategies for Software Engineers and PMs
Speaker: Gayle Laakmann McDowell, Founder / CEO of CareerCup.com and Author of Cracking the Coding Interview and The Google Resume.
CS interviews are a different breed from other interviews and, as such, require specialized skills and techniques. This talk will teach you how to prepare for coding and PM interviews, what top companies like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft really look for, and how to tackle the toughest programming and algorithm problems. This is not a fluffy be-your-best talk; it is deeply technical and will discuss specific algorithm and data structure topics.
Signed copies of McDowell's Cracking the Coding Interview and The Google Resume will be on sale after the talk. Cracking the Coding Interview is the #1 interview prep book for software engineers. The Google Resume is a broader book to teach people what they need to do to position themselves for a tech job, starting from early in college up through the offer and job performance itself. The books are rated as 5 and 4.5 stars respectively on Amazon.

Gayle Laakmann McDowell is the founder and CEO of CareerCup.com and the author of Cracking the Coding Interview and The Google Resume. CareerCup is the leading source of technical interview preparation and provides a free forum with 8000+ technical interview questions, a book, a video, and mock interviews. 



Gayle has worked as a Software Engineer for Google, Microsoft and Apple and has extensive interviewing experience on both sides of the table. She has interviewed and received offers from Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, IBM, Goldman Sachs and a variety of other firms, and she has interviewed over 120 candidates at Google and served on its hiring committee. 



Gayle holds a BSE and MSE from UPenn in Computer Science, and an MBA from the Wharton School.
