Back into interview mode - during proposed Underground strike

Today I heard that I have my first job interview lined up already.

It's in central London, which is good. Hopefully the tube strike will either be called off or will not have as much effect as I expect. The evening news mentioned 100 extra busses can run if necessary, but I can imagine that causing more problems than it would solve.

I don't know all that much about UK politics, but if the mayor of London can be criticised for not having suitable contingency plans in place for an unusual run of snow days, then I expect Boris will be catching a considerable amount of flack if the underground is shut down for 48 hours.

I'm going to assume that the overground evening trails will not be effected, as I have a friend's birthday dinner to attend across town. Based on the reviews for the restaurant the food will either be great or rubbish.

In terms of interview preparation, so far I have mainly been looking into new technologies, so between now and Wednesday afternoon I will need to look back at projects that I have designed and developed and be prepared to have a whiteboard session explaining what fitted where, and why. Fun times.
