Shawn is an instructor and cofounder at Hack Reactor, SF's leading training program for software engineers. He's been a technical team lead at OkCupid Labs and at YC-funded Campus Cred. The job search curriculum he developed at Hack Reactor, developed from his experiences on both sides of the interview, has led to Hack Reactor's 100% job placement rate. He's been a teacher since the age of 17, when he taught classes on pointer dereferencing and algorithmic complexity at his high school.
Can you build an event binding system in ten lines of code? Do you know what problems border-box incurs? It just so happens that the most common front-end tech interview questions span the most interesting corners of browser technologies. In this talk, Shawn Drost will give you a taxonomy of interview questions, dive deep into solutions, and collate your best resources for further study. You'll leave with a stronger grasp of the technologies you use every day, and a roadmap for success in interviews. The material is drawn from the curriculum of Hack Reactor, an immersion school that routinely leads software engineers toward 5 figure increases to their skills and marketability.
