I feel like whenever they are pretending you need to know all the patterns by memory, testing you on that, it's a nonsense and it even makes me stop wanting to enter the place.

Im not supposed to know them instantly, i use tools like the internet. Test my ability to solve problems, comnunicate, work in groups, but, specific stuff by memory? Why?

    The design pattern crap is just buzzwordy BS anyway.

    I'd say be sure you know what mvc is because it comes up so early when you're doing a ui based app. Other than that knowing other design patterns is useful eg factory methods but not important.

    Yeah, knowing some stuff like "SELECT * FROM Users" by memory doesn't seem as a key reason to hire someone, also recently a recruiter asked me to do some responsive design with vanilla css, because his company didn't use a pre processor, in my mind I was like: "SRSLY???" I know vanilla css, but why wouldn't you use Sass or Less, Why??

    Hahaha not only why dont they use a preprocessor, but asking someone to remember media queries, syntax, etc, is unbelievable. As an alternative i'd ask the person to explain me how he/she would do it, in a paragraph or just speaking. But implementation in interviews... usless from my point of view, unless its pseudocode just to see the reasoning @IrvArmenta
