Non-Coding Tips for Coding Interview Assignments
Apr 19, 2021 Season 1 Episode 16
Nate Ebel

Unsurprisingly, when discussing take-home assignments for coding interviews, much of the focus is put on code.  Can you code?  Are you using "best practices?"  What tools are you using?.  There's lots of code-related things that people think about, or even stress about. 

Unfortunately, non-coding tips for coding interview assignments don't get talked about nearly as much. And, in my experience, there are a lot of non-coding things we can do to put our best foot forward and impress a hiring committee with our take-home assignment.
