Workshop: Software Engineering Interview Preparation

May 5, 2018 · Portland, United States of America

Please RSVP on Eventbrite:

Women Who Code Portland is hosting our first ever Software Engineering Interview Preparation Workshop! This event is geared towards helping women prepare for technical interviews, but we welcome everyone who supports our mission of inspiring women to excel in technology careers and follows our code of conduct. The goal of the workshop is to provide people with the opportunity to gain experience with a technical interview format.

This workshop is broken into two sections:
- Algorithms Review
- Mock Interviews & Whiteboarding

In the morning, we'll cover an introduction to solving algorithms. Participants will have the chance to see common interview algorithms, and approach how to solve them under pressure.

In the afternoon, we will break into groups for mock interviews. This will help participants get a feel for what a technical interview might be like. Whiteboarding can be much different than writing on paper, especially in front of others. Participants will have the chance to practice answers to common questions, thinking out loud while solving a problem and practice techniques for how to move forward when stumped.


The event cost is $10 for participants and includes lunch.
Scholarships: If you are a student, under-employed, or in need of financial assistance, we have full scholarships available for this event. Please submit an application at
