Hello everyone! This week, I’d like to introduce Sam Gavis-Hughson. He’s here to help with technical interviews and developing the skills to work through the pressure of a large technical company and startup coding interviews. He shared SO MUCH good stuff with us on this episode, I think you’ll appreciate how down to earth he is. We talk about prepping for interview skills, as well as getting ready for the metal game of an in-person interview.
