My favourite interview to date, and the one I felt gave me the most
scope to show off my knowledge, was one where I was asked to bring in
some code I'd written, and then asked to explain it to the interviewer.

Gave me a great opportunity to talk about why I'd done certain things
(like the use of GOTO in one place!), potential issues in the code, why
I'd done things a certain way, etc
