how to crack software developer interview in style

Junior level professionals in the Software Development industry will be changing their job very often. The interview will be very competitive in well-paying companies. To clear interview you can refer popular blogs based on your skill, refer interview books in the market.

Issues with conventional ways to prepare for interview

But the problem with these conventional ways is that, you hardly find any single blog or website to sharpen your skill set. You end up opening multiple tab in a browser for each link available in the googlesearch. This will lead to confusion on which one to read.

Though interview books are good for interview preparation, they are very narrow in terms of what they cover and more over you will such interviews books only for most widely skills like JAVA, .NET, etc. Also its difficult to find revised books latest frameworks & technologies in market.

Using stackoverflow to prepare for interview

I think you can easily clear interview if you went through question and answers on stackoverflow for a given skill.

For example for C# language as of this blog post publish, they are around 125,334 questions. That is very vast universe of questions.

Also its easy to find top rated questions and answers. So if you start preparing for top voted questions and answers, over 2 -3 months you can very well sharpen your skill to clear difficult interviews.
