I’ve taken a look at the famous book The Lean Startup by Eric Ries. It’s a must-read for every manager who wants to think like an entrepreneur.

Conducting tech interviews is a critical process in building a strong development team. To successfully evaluate candidates, you must go beyond assessing their technical skills and also understand their motivations, background, and potential fit within your team. This guide will provide you with a structured approach to conducting tech interviews, from preparing questions to providing feedback.
Assess the Candidate’s Motivation and Background
Start by understanding the candidate’s motivation for being a developer. Their reasons will give you insights into their passion, dedication, and potential for growth. Next, take a deep dive into their background and experience. Compare their accomplishments to your own experiences, and assess how complex their projects have been and their enthusiasm when discussing their work.

The project that caused this article is React and headless architecture, a lot of API calls are returning JSONs.
We had a problem, sometimes we had white page because of a lot of JS errors.
