Knowing Where You Suck
Having just gotten off the "Skype-phone" with a fairly laid-back interviewer, I realized I get jittery in interviews.

I could of said: Dali cache digest, Russian doll caching, pSQL arrays, turbolinks, or PATCH but, NO! All that could eke out of my mouth was "Parameters in the Controller vs the Model". Which doesn't even make a lot of sense. So as the folks at Thoughbot say:
you need to know your weaknesses
mine happens to be headlights...
