How not to interview for help

Question: “What is the difference between System.Array.CopyTo versus System.Array.Clone”?

Correct answer: who the fuck cares?  If you find yourself working with arrays, know it, otherwise, Google is your friend.

Technically correct answer: shallow copy versus deep copy.

Sadly these type of tech questions are about as 'good' as it gets when trying to determine the technical knowledge of a person... sad i know.

I much rather have a coding session with someone to determine their knowledge.

Yeah, see, having been on both sides of those types of interview sessions (never by choice), I think there are much better ways of just having a conversation and getting a feel for someone's experience, and how they can answer other types of questions.
