Web Developer Interview Stories/Help

So, I'm feeling ready to start applying for Web Developer jobs to start a new career in a field that I've wanted to do for a long time but was unable to do so until I found Treehouse.

I'm very terrified about having a "Technical Interview" where I'll be asked to code a Fibonacci sequence or something along those lines and I'll have no idea what to do.

  1. Has anyone had any recent interviews where you were put in this situation? How did it go? Did it go well? What advice do you have to prepare?

  2. Are there any horror stories where you showed up for an interview and completely bombed the technical portions even though you're able to build apps and write decent code?

Couple of articles from Smashing Magazine:

The Interview Process

Preparing for the Interview

Make sure to check the comments on both as well, lots of stories there.
