I agree 200%. I got so frustrated with interviews; I even got up and walked out on a couple because of the arbitrary-stretched-to-the-point-of-WTF who the hell has used one of those [insert obscure programming theory] in code in the last 20 years. The disgust has been so acrid that I started re-evaluating my career choices.

Amen to that. I've dated a medical doctor in the past... and they never did anything like this to her. This is for doctors. So why is tech held to this standard? Maybe... maybe if it was for NASA... but for most LOB jobs. I mean really.

I've given interviews and usually just by talking to the applicant inside of a few minutes can pretty quickly tell if the individual is a bullshit artist or not.
Exactly. If you know what you're doing... all it takes is a chat IMO.
