Talking with Startup Teams at Factory Berlin (Germany)

A conversation I had with the co-founder and CTO of a tech startup at Factory Berlin recently prompted me to write about my approach to interviewing technical candidates and also on how I approach these types of interviews myself. The TL;DR is this:
