Technical Interviewing–You’re Doing it Wrong

What I always try to do, is to take some of the stress away when I’m interviewing someone. No idea if I’m successful in doing this, but I do my best. When people are put under stress, they suddenly can’t remember some of the easiest stuff. Making an interview a stressful experience will not give you good insight in the quality of a candidate.
