Front-end Developer Interview Questions

The Changelog

Darcy Clarke joined the show to talk about his repo on the HTML5 Boilerplate org on GitHub “Front-end Developer Interview Questions”. We discussed why the repo has been so successful, the challenges of translating a text document into multiple languages, managing contributions, the art of interviewing, how the expectations of front-end developers have evolved over time, and how to stay relevant in our fast moving industry.

Notes and Links

Darcy is the creator of the Front-end Developer Interview Questions project on the H5BP org on GitHub – it’s “a list of helpful front-end related questions you can use to interview potential candidates, test yourself or completely ignore.”

At the end of the episode, we turned the tables on Darcy and asked him a few questions from the list.


“The goal is to try to have the (interview) question be more open ended, and hopefully it starts a discussion between the interviewer and interviewee.” - Darcy Clarke @ 12:28

“This document is like a high school english assignment, with over 100 group members, and they all have differing opinions, and there’s a ton of different subjects… It’s the worst kind of open source project.” - Darcy Clarke @ 22:56
