Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Lafayette, IN

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Purdue University in April 2012.

Interview Details – Phone screen to see if I was a good fit and full day visit. For the full day visit I was introduced to staff, I gave a presentation of usability analysis of the website, then a group of them sat at a table and took turns asking me questions. They took me to lunch. Typical general interview questions (tell us about a time you failed, tell us about your work ethic) plus technical questions (explain MVC) and questions about what web technologies I knew. (PHP, Json, Jquery, Linux). I was asked to send examples of my code to them afterwards.

Interview Question – Explain MVC (in terms of Joomla)   Answer Question
