Hi all,

today I had an interview with Google, first contact with HR. They asked me some questions like "how would you implement the Map interface" , etc..

I need to prepare myself about data structures, complexity, etc for a 45 minutes interview with a Google developer.

Someone who was in the same situation can share some advice, please?

Regards, Isaac

Interview questions have two components:-
  • 1: What you say
  • 2: How you say it
  • How did you answer that question? How would you implement Map?

    I said: Implementing the class HashMap

    They said it was ok, I went to the next round. This was just a pre-screening
