#1

In a technical interview, what programming language (for the coding challenges) do interviewers require / want you to use?


#2

It depends on the shop. Sometimes even pseudocode is enough.


#3

Mine have either been in JavaScript or “your choice”.


#4

Whatever language(s) the job your interviewing for requires. At some large companies that do entry level interviews that aren’t specific to one team/project, they will allow you to choose a language (usually C++/Java, but I think Amazon gave the option of Python as well).


#5

Most I have participated in allow whichever language you’re most comfortable in. Usually they are generic enough algorithm/logic questions that a variety of languages can apply. If it’s a position that requires knowledge in certain languages, they might ask you do use one of those.

Thanks for all of your responses so far.
