Hi all.

I have recently been asked to apply for a web services automation test developer position with a large development firm. I feel excited and nervous for the upcoming meeting.

Nervous mainly because I've only been in the software development industry for about 4 years now, and out of those years most of my experience has been in the front end of things. Developing in Java, PHP and ColdFusion (HTML, CSS, JS, etc etc).

I have some experience working in web services, but not much. Again, because of my lack of experience in this area I am completely surprised that I was asked to interview.

From what I know about the job, they primarily use .NET technologies; developing in C# and I believe ASP.NET.

My question is this: would anyone have any advice or suggestions on what practices or even classes/objects would be best to know going into an interview like this?

I've searched quite a bit online for discussions around this and have come up a bit dry.

Thanks for any advice.

Tony D.

It's not even sure that they acutally talk in such detailed level of knowledge as classes, but talk personality and attitude instead. Often, knowing a language itself is't the important, but knowing how to program and how to develop software.
