As one of the lead developers I do interview all new candidates to add to our team. I think a lot can be learned in an interview more than just the yes / no questions. I usually ask a lot of do you know... What kind of ... Did you ... These questions hold some value but you are sometimes not sure if they are telling the truth. But then I get into discussing what I do and that is where I learn the most about what a candidate actually knows. If they have no clue what I am talking about it is usually very easy to tell...
