Whiteboard coding interview. A quick way for me to lose the job opportunity in 5 seconds.

    When I came in for the technical interview and saw a whiteboard I nearly shat myself. Fortunately, the guy conducting the interview was a dev and just used to discuss front-end design and code patterns.

    Why? I'd much rather whiteboard than be sat down and a desk where the chair isn't setup properly, with none of my keyboard shortcuts, probably a different text editor than I'm used to and be expected to code under high pressure. A whiteboard and a pen is a 100% level playing field and if you can't draw a binary tree, a basic ERD, sketch out an algorithm, an mvc diagram or at least jot down some pseudo code. Wtf are you even at the interview for?
