Acing the Coding Assessment

In the previous chapter, we discussed architecture in depth. Architecture discussions tend to be very theoretical and methodological; the same can be said for design pattern discussions.

In this chapter, we will get to the meat – to the code, working with Xcode, and playing with algorithms. We will cover everything related to coding interview tasks, such as the following:

  • How to succeed in a live coding interview, the different tests, and how to code like a pro
  • How to excel in home assessments by discussing different skills to use and reviewing home assessment examples
  • How to avoid mistakes that may raise red flags in our interviews

This is the final chapter! You will be fully prepared for your first interview by the end of it. Now, let’s dive straight into tips for the live coding interview.
