Did Google ever ask you to interview again?

Hello I'm an interviewer at Google and I have a tricky interview question for you:

Can you give a rough estimate of the total time that would have been wasted installing, configuring and updating software if homebrew didn't exist?

Hey @Maximwheat, I really excited for this huddle!
I have a question for Max Howell:

As a beginner, open-source codebases seems overwhelming specially when the tech-stack is different, how do we navigate that ?
