It depends on what job your applying for ??? (Before the interview) - Read the job description - Decide which language's the job requires - Look at the technology involved - Do your research into the company - Look into company culture On you - Join a site => Hackerrank, LeetCode etc... - Solve some problems - Concentrate on inputs and outputs - Write down some input data / out data - Write some Psuedocode - Input a algorithm - Test the algorithm with the corresponding language - Pass the provided test cases - Once solved go to the next question - Figure out which questions will be asked and concentrate on those. - Work on your Data structures as well. - Have fun and be patient During the interview: - Stay cool take deep breaths - Dont let these interviewers break you - Always ask questions to clarify - Do not rush - Lastly if you fail thank them and MOVE ON Remember think on paper first before any code is written draw out a story. (Programming is thinking not typing) - Goodluck.

You should concentrate more on data structures, algorithms and problem solving as questions are based on these and not just a single programming language.

Personally, I found answer by Mcqueen perfect. Thank you for sharing sir ^_^

I think to give best technical interview, any specific programing language doesn't mean. Your OOP concepts, algorithms, data structures should be strong enough. If you want to learn these, i would recommend java or Python.

You shouldn’t learn a language to interview. I’ve been the interviewer at Google 400+ times. I’ve seen candidates write bad code because they were writing in an unfamiliar language. In one case, a candidate wrote poor C and ended up with very leaky/ugly/wrong code. I recommended they code in something they were familiar with for the subsequent interviews and gave a weak score for the coding section, despite strong problem solving and algorithms skills. From reading others feedback, I saw the candidate switched to Objective C in their later interviews and scored much better, and got hired. But if the candidate continued writing C code, the candidate likely wouldn’t have been hired. If Javascript is your most fluent language, write code in Javascript during your interview. It’s fine. It’s a real programming language.

Java and Javascript are some of the most common languages used today in industry.

💮 BiShu 💮 thank you its the logical choice to getting a job nowadays. just my opinion nothing is fact.

Any 1 Language to choose.... be strong that .... and other core subjects r... very important 50% programming Lang... and 50% aside Code subjects... 😋

In time base I divide two category. 1.If you have lot of time you should start just with one. Almost every language basic concept is same. Choose this one you have good resources and do master it. After that you find your comfort zone. 2. If you haven't lot of time, you should focus what to do by programming language and find the best related one. Give your full gear(effort) but don't push up it may break out. For this read Anthony Perez's idea. After all welcome in programming. ☺🙂

i think you need to learn one of the object oriented languages. i vote for Java

Emphasize more on logic and solving real time problem using algorithms, than programming, as in interviews, it is more of approach what matters with fundamental concept.

Great discusion.. Thanks Mr. Perez for leetCode.

Python of Java. But all the decision is yours to make

+5

I recommend C#.. but depends where you live. I live in Seattle. Microsoft land..

Evryone praise AUSTINN

solve more

Basic algorithm most important for any interview related to your programming skill.

It depend on the coding company of choice

I think u should hold one programming language which u know the best,in which u can do any type of coding and answer to any question related to it.

Austin is always right
