Overview: Whiteboard interviewing is one of the most dreaded parst of a junior programmer's interview process. In this interactive workshop, Ellen will talk through the principles of what an interviewer is looking for in these sessions, and then do a live demonstration of the whiteboard programming test with the "Ask, Talk, Test" approach that she has used to successfully mentor over a hundred DigiPen Institute of Technology college students through the interview process. The audience will be encouraged to participate in the process, looking for presentation errors, compile errors, and other errors.
