216 ratings

This 200+ page book will contain all of my knowledge about the technical interview process! After spending the last five years perfecting my interview skills with data structures, algorithms, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and systems design I've compiled all of my knowledge and put it in writing for all of you.


"Most of the anxiety I ever experienced with interviewing was around uncertainty and feeling that though I was preparing, I wasn't preparing the right things or in the right way. In "De-Coding The Technical Interview," Emma does a superb job breaking down the process of interviews that reflects the experiences I have had at tech companies. I'm certain that had I prepared for all my interviews using a resource like this, I would have gotten more (and better) offers." - Kent C. Dodds

"Preparing for technical interviews is quite the undertaking. It can be overwhelming trying to figure out what to study and finding the time to do so. Fortunately, Emma Bostian has you covered with De-Coding The Technical Interview Process. This book does a wonderful job of breaking down each step of the technical interview process from the first call with a recruiter to the negotiation phase! It explains what to expect and suggests how to prepare - including example tasks and the skills needed to solve them. The author even provides a detailed calendar to help you prioritize what and when to study. Even if not actively interviewing, the abundance of technical exercises and problem-solving techniques make this a worthy addition to any software developer's bookshelf."

In "De-Coding The Technical Interview", Emma gives a masterclass on proving valuable insight from someone experienced enough to be giving interviews while remaining empathetic to the struggles of the developer going through them."
