Weekly Links: July 8th
A small list this week as it’s a holiday in the states. So fewer articles out there, and I’m sure I missed some of them.
I’m nowhere near Marco’s experience level interviewing, but his advice in this “interview on interviewing” resonates with my experience. Things that stood out to me:
- Don’t overoptimize on a specific skillset as a startup, since you don’t know what skills you need yet.
- It’s incredibly important (but also quite difficult) to be consistent in your standards across all interviewees
- Team interviewing works better than 1 on 1 interviews for evaluating technical skills and team fit.
An engineering horror story.
Rands remains my favorite software blog because of his ability to capture truths about the engineer condition with beautiful words.
