SharePoint 2010 interview questions

I have been asked about SharePoint 2010 interview’s questions several times, these questions are suitable for both Junior and senior level SharePoint developers; measuring the knowledge level should be on how deep you go in discussing the answers.

These questions are categorized into Administration, Branding & Development since I believe that good developer should have fair understanding of several SharePoint administration topics in addition to full understanding of SharePoint Branding structure.

This interview should be done by somebody who has a deep SharePoint knowledge, the questions here should be handled as a starting point for discussion rather then regular Q/A interview; this interview should take 20 to 40 minutes.
