## Transcript

3. ### What has been the format of some whiteboarding or development

interviews you've done?
4. ### What's important to do when you are talking through a

whiteboard question? What's the process you might go through to address it?
5. ### How did you prepare for the interview and/or whiteboarding? What

kind of resources did you use?
6. ### Activity:Try out a Whiteboarding Question with a Dev Buddy •

You’ll get the most value if you don’t solve these problems alone • Step away from a computer, grab a piece of paper, and a dev buddy, and try to solve these problems interactively while talking the solution through.
7. ### Design a method to ﬁnd the frequency of occurrences of

any given word in a book. What if we were running this algorithm multiple times?
8. ### Given any integer, print an English phrase that describes the

integer. E.g. "One thousand two hundred thirty four" (1234)
9. ### Given two arrays of integers, compute the pair of values

(one value in each array) with the smallest (non-negative) difference. Return the difference. E.g. (1, 3, 15, 11, 2) and (23, 127, 135, 19, 8): output is 3 of the pair (11, 8)
10. ### ‘The kciuq fox depmuj over eht lazy god’ a. You

are given the above phrase. Use any language of your choosing to get the phrase to be written correctly. That is, for every other word, reverse the letters to make the phrase say: ‘The quick fox jumped over the lazy dog’.
