Discussion on: What I learned from failing my technical interviews

I've considered sharing my coding interview failures as well since I've had the luxury of not passing three of the four FANG company final stages. This post provides lots of great inspiration and pointers, so thanks for that! My tech career over twenty years has primarily been a mix of learning on the job and getting new roles by referrals. Since I didn't complete the traditional computer science path, I have less of an advantage when it comes to the LeetCode questions. I'm not saying I couldn't catch up, but there is less motivation to do so when work remains stable. I do like the approach of coding homework assignments over brain teaser quizzes that put the candidate on the spot.
