The business of hiring programmers

Posted at — May 14, 2012

As I sit here on the eve of an interview and the programming test which I always dread taking and I find myself reading page after page of java interview questions. One blogger pointed out a number of professional test sites… but it all caused me to come back to the same place.Isn’t it more important to hire someone who is more generally skilled and knowledgeable than someone who is singularly focused on java or some particular language? And how would you interview that person?
