  • How to do well in programming interviews.
  • How to do well in product management interviews.
  • How to be a great technical interviewer and reduce false negatives.
  • How to hire developers and product managers.
  • Various topics relating to women in tech/female entrepreneurs

(I also do consulting on technical interviewing.)
