FULL DISCUSSION
 
 

I quit my job so I have to prepare for the interview game again...ugh.

 

Select every other letter from the alphabet and then write an api that scrapes an online dictory for all the valid words that match the remaining letters. Solve it using O 1 space complexity. lol

During my last job search, one of the take home assignments from a company was to write a REST API that returns "Hello World!". That was literally all the instruction that was given. When pressed for more details, I was told to think about a design which would be easy to expand upon in the future and other cliche directives. I still have no idea what exactly they were looking for, it seems like a sarcastic comment or a cruel joke that went way too far.

I like when companies have challenges where you have to hack a web-app or send your résumé via an API endpoint in a specific format.

 

I find that the context of the week-end lets me really relax and code at a slower pace. It's also when I work on smaller & weirder projects like the one I wrote about today:

 

I code every single day. For me every new line of code is a invention and it gives me a sense of pride (also I dance when my code works 👷).

 

It's a good thing my code doesn't work often because I'm a bad dancer

 

Yes. At least 1 hour minimum regardless of any holidays

 

Sure thing, Sunday is just another day and I have no friend to meet and hang around with.

 

The only friends I need are clang, vim and &&
