Dynamic State vs. Prepared State

The overwhelming majority of software engineers went to college and grew up in a very academically-inclined environment. Bringing the mentality cultivated from that experience to the job search often unfortunately has bad consequences. This lesson teaches you:

  • Why traditional learning methods don't translate well to software engineering
  • The difference between prepared state (how you grew up learning) and dynamic state (how you should actually learn)
  • A defining trait of the most successful interviewers, which most candidates don't have
  • How to train yourself properly when it comes to your interview preparation and overall learning
