Technical interview can be stressful. In this article I want to give you some advices which were useful to me when I was the person being interviewed. Nowadays I’m on the other side and being an interviewer has strengthened my view about some of the advices. There are just a handful of them but I think they can really make a difference.

One thing worth noting is that those advices are not related to some algorithmic/puzzle questions a few companies ask on a technical interview. From my experience such questions are a weak predictor about how well a person will suit a job. I much more prefer a pair programming session on a real and relevant (to the product I’m hiring to) feature and a discussion about past experiences.

I hope that those advices will be helpful for you. Just try to have a bit of fun, learn something, relax and be curious!
