Whiteboard interviewing is one of the most dreaded parts of a junior programmer's interview process. Ellen and Cal will talk through the principles of what interviewers are looking for in these sessions, including the "Ask, Talk, Test" approach that Ellen has used to successfully mentor over a hundred DigiPen students. The audience will be encouraged to participate with their questions about technical interviewing and whiteboard programming interviews.

Bryant Francis, Contributing Editor of Gamasutra, will be joining this session as moderator.
