    I am fearful I am going to get destroyed in my next job interview

    I was like, huh I can't say what static is

    then I looked it up and it's like oh yeah, you can call the function without first having an object of that type

    and if it's like a static variable, it's basically global across all instances of that object

    and you can't create an interface for static shit so that's a knock against it in the test system we use (google mocks/tests)

    yeah I knew those three things, but I had to do a google first to get my bearings : (

    Also if a function or variable are static at the top level, outside an object, that means they can only be seen by code in that file.

    Having interviewed STEM job applicants I can say that while there is no shortage of STEM graduates, there is a shortage of good STEM graduates.

    My company isn't even trying to underpay or offer shit benefits and they've already accepted that they won't be getting google and apple level talent. And yet still, candidate after candidate cannot answer simple questions.

    The ones that can answer are typically swimming in offers and take whatever tickles their fancy.

    Can you give examples? This kind of thing makes me curious

    canny edge detection and building boxes, etc

    The canny edge detection story is actually a good example. My company does computer vision, so every applicant for certain positions has taken a computer vision course and listed computer vision as a specialization for a post-graduate degree. So keep that in mind.

    Canny edge detection is one of the basic, most commonly taught computer vision algorithms. Its an image transform that takes in a fully detailed photographic image and spits out another image that looks more like a line drawing. Its great for, as its name suggests, detecting edges. It lets a computer greatly cut down the information content of an image, and make the content left over invariant to lighting, shading, etc. It's typically taught in Image Processing or Computer Vision 101 type classes.

    I asked an open-ended question of a candidate. "How would you find a cardboard box in an image of a cardboard box?" The question tests a variety of things, but it's very open to discussion. One candidate in their answer mentioned the canny edge detector, but the way they used it in their design seemed a little odd and skipped a lot of steps, so I asked them to go back and explain. They looked at me like I had just ripped their pants down, so I knew I was in for a treat.

    Over the course of their explanation, it became clear that they didn't know what the canny edge detector was or what it did or what its inputs and outputs were. These are not hard questions. It takes in a photo, it spits out a line drawing. But they couldn't say it because they didn't know it. They just threw out the words and hoped I'd let them gloss over it. And I would have, if their usage had made any sense.

    From there the interview went rapidly downhill. It was clear they didn't have any computer vision experience and they failed the basic C/C++ programming test too. And this is not uncommon. This is representative of about half of the people who make it through the screening process. These are people with nice GPAs and degrees from good institutions. It's really demoralizing.

    I mean, if I'm ready canny edge right on wikipedia, it's a grayscale/bluring (reduce the number of tiny sharp edges?) image where they scan over the ints in the bitmap and check for something breaking a threshold between adjacent values, seems pretty straight forward.

    If you were doing computer vision as a degree this seems like something you'd be doing every god damned day for research and projects to the point where it'd be second nature.

    Is the C++ just like.. testing if you know for/if/else/variables or are you doing OOP, structs, bit packing, etc ?

    Canny is a very specific implementation of that, one that was invented in the 70s and is always cited as the default / standard edge detection technique. But essentially yes. You're looking for gradient that exceeds a certain threshold. Yes is is used like every day.

    C++ test is a little nitpicky, but it's nothing crazy. We ask about macros and the preprocessor, keywords like static. We ask about pre and post increment stuff, pointer questions, some basic "reimplement basic string parsing" stuff, one question that tests that the candidate can write a sane function definition for something that need to use dynamically allocated memory. I'd call it a middling C++ test. Goes beyond if/else and loops, but stops sort of advanced crazy shit like multiple inheritance or weird ass corner cases that would be mean to expect someone to know.

    I thought the macro question is a little mean at first, but when I watched a few people reason through it, I was impressed with how readily it exposes the frauds.

    It really is kind of crazy the kind of shit you can do with macros though.

    You don't hardly even need to write c++ code, just do it all in the preprocessor macro language.

    nooooo

    the last decade of development in C++ has (among other things) been about adding shit so you never have to use macros again. constexpr etc...

    I very much agree with what Donkey Kong wrote above. About half of candidates that get through all the layers of screening to even get to an interview seem unable to answer basic questions about things they chose to list on their resume. If someone doesn't know X that's usually not a problem But don't then go and say you know X on your fucking resume.

    I want examples so that I can feel cool for knowing things that other people don't

    oh for example what is the difference between a value type and a reference type (or struct vs class) in C#. Why would you use a List<> vs a Dictionary<>. (for someone who claimed to know C#)

    I feel like the latter is a thing anyone who claims to know anything about algorithms or data structures should be able to answer without any more context :P

    I feel vindicated though.

    Fizzbuzz will at least tell you you have a programmer of some variety if they can solve it.

    Depending on how elegant it is, and if they took longer than 30 minutes, will tell you if they're a natural programmer, or just someone who studied what fizzbuzz was the night before.

    Yeah about a year ago I was in the position of firing out fairly bullshit-filled resumes. I was going for data science (lel) but easily could have been shooting out machine vision resumes since that's a bit closer to what I actually know how to do. Very unclear if I'd immediately get spotted as a fraud, but I 100% understand why you would put that sort of thing on your resume--you are a stem PhD with an expertise in something entirely useless and non-job relevant, you want your resume to be looked at, so you put in some keywords and figure you'll learn them on the job.

    I bet you could

    input: a list of random ints with values between 1 and 100
    output: for each number print "fizz" if it's (evenly) divisible by 3, "buzz" if it's divisible by 5, and "fizzbuzz" if divisible by both.

    I keep wanting to write a joke overly complex way to do this that'd still work, but I'm having trouble actually thinking of any.

    I guess you could do it by writing too many functions and passing shit around those.

    I had one that put the ascii for "fizzbuzz" into a byte array and read out of it starting different places using bizarre pointer arithmetic that worked out to be the right place for each integer used.

    Oh man this is amazing

    50% of being able to fizzbuzz is basic programming knowledge
    the other 50% is knowing that the modulo operator is a thing that exists

    You could probably also do it with some abomination involving floats and casting back and forth

    yeah

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    Fizzbuzz will at least tell you you have a programmer of some variety if they can solve it.

    Depending on how elegant it is, and if they took longer than 30 minutes, will tell you if they're a natural programmer, or just someone who studied what fizzbuzz was the night before.

    haha what

    I think that with a year actually working a bit more in computer vision, I probably could do ok in a machine vision question like 'recognize [anything]', although what I would say instead is 'do transferred learning from a CNN developed for imagenet' -- although then if I were asked 'yeah ok, so how would you do that' I would say 'I would fucking google it/ask my colleagues'

    They do know how gullible fandom is, though.

    I am fearful I am going to get destroyed in my next job interview

    I was like, huh I can't say what static is

    then I looked it up and it's like oh yeah, you can call the function without first having an object of that type

    and if it's like a static variable, it's basically global across all instances of that object

    and you can't create an interface for static shit so that's a knock against it in the test system we use (google mocks/tests)

    yeah I knew those three things, but I had to do a google first to get my bearings : (

    Also if a function or variable are static at the top level, outside an object, that means they can only be seen by code in that file.

    in C or C++ yeah. Means something different in C#. And in Javascript it means a local variable whose value is kept around the next time you call the same function.

    Static is one of those things I need to go lookup, without fail, every time I switch languages.
