Interesting Facts :
By programmers, for programmers, in language only programmers can understand.A rare self-help book for a very large and radically under-served audience, Programming Interviews Exposed, 0471383562, 5/15/00, has become the classic job preparation reference with more than 34,000 copies sold and more than half these sales coming in the last three yearsThe 2e will be published in the WROX brand, the perfect home for a programming job search book.Updated for real world coverage: Code examples will be updated to include Java, C# etc. in addition to legacy programming languages. New sections on online interview preparation in light of the fact that most employers Google you as a matter of course before deciding to interview you as well as the challenges of competing for fewer jobs will enhance the 2e.Unique coverage: With more than 1/3 of the questions asked in a programming interview, PIE2e will be updated with new and fresh complex brain teasers as even brilliant coders can crumple under interview pressure.
