CS interviews are a different breed from other interviews and, as such, require specialized skills and techniques. Cracking the Coding Interview will teach you how to prepare for coding interviews, what top companies like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft really look for, and how to tackle the toughest programming and algorithm problems. This talk will be technical, and will include stories from the speaker's extensive interviewing experience as well as a live "demo" of how to tackle a technical problem.
Signed copies of McDowell's Cracking the Coding Interview book will on sale after the talk.
Gayle Laakmann McDowell is the founder and CEO of CareerCup.com and the author of the best-selling book, 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.
