Get used to writing code with pen and paper (6/16)

I can’t tell you how many interviews I went to where the interviewer asked me to solve a problem in code, but required me to write the solution on a piece of paper.

For example: Write a SQL query that updates all rows in the Cars table where the model is Ford. Give me a computer, and I can type that out in seconds. Forced to write it out, and I would balk. There’s just some mental block there that interviewees have to be prepared for.
