WANTED: Senior SharePoint developer/Administrator interview

I moved on from SharePoint developer and became a team lead.

But still I will be around SharePoint issues plus more issues from other IT products!

This post is a quick note for those who may want to be a developer instead of me.

Here is the list of questions that I am going to ask a future Senior SharePoint developer\Architect in my wonderful team of professionals:
