It would be great if someone can also share the relevant examples for them.

Will be interviewing for SDE 2 at Alexa.

    Prepare an example for each LP. Shouldn't take more than an hour and you'll be prepared.

    Remember, hiring gets done based on code exercises (and design questions); leveling mostly gets done based on LPs

      So be humble with coding and shoot for the moon on LP?

    Make sure you prepare disagree and commit. Bar raisers love it.

    Most of them except maybe frugality. Everything else can probably be asked on an interview.

    They are all a fair game, except maybe Frugality (as someone else has already mentioned), and possibly Hire and Develop the Best (depending on if you have not included mentoring or management on your resume)
    Another thing to keep in mind is that some examples can be applied to multiple LPs while some examples will conflict with other LPs. Having that awareness also helps.
