    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

    A lot of recruiters will tell a comp-sci person to study up on fizzbuzz.

    Then they struggle with ordering the if/else statement to make it work right, etc.

    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.

    hmm idk what that means, 'at the top level, outside an object'

    You know how your main function doesn't belong to an object? It's just a bare function in a C++ file? Like that.

    ah

    I don't think I've seen a main function since I started working

    so in that instance you'd have file.cpp

    and in it you'd have the static function declared and defined and then the main function

    and even if you #include file.cpp in another file, you won't be able to get at the static because it's not related to a class?

    if someone was actually doing really well on the easy C# questions I used to like to ask them what the yield keyword is for as it used to be hell of obscure.

    but now it's pretty important to the language what with async and await so people should know it

    And all I have to say for canny edges is just--there are opencv implementations of that readily available. But if I want to recognize lines specifically instead of just getting a messy outline I would use Line Segment Detection, also already implemented in opencv etc.

    But like, have I ever personally done this--no...but does that really matter?

    Thank god I don't see myself changing jobs for a while, or applying for a senior scientist sort of position if I do...

    You can't be fucking serious.

    I have a CIS degree and I can do that.

    I'll be honest. I don't know if I could either. But I can find tests to break any program over my goddamn knee.

    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

    Oh here it is.
    int main()
    {
        char* c = "fizzbuzz";
        for(int i=1; i< 101; i++)
        {
            int s = 4*(!(i%5)&&(i%3));
            int f = 4*(!(i%3)+2*!(i%5)-!(i%15));
            for(int j=s;j<f;j++)
                cout << c[j];
            if (!f)
                cout << i;
            cout << endl;
        }
        return 0;
    }
    

    Looks like this one is similar but even more ridic.

    I am tempted to make a fizzbuzz abomination with an array filled with the null character and "fizz" and "buzz" in certain locations that abuses the fuck out of c strings in dangerous ways such that it hits a null character as the start and is an empty string if the number isn't properly divisible by three or five.

    We interview a lot of level 1 candidates in my department. Some of them are internals.

    We get a lot of frauds. The resume screening process filters most them out, but some of them sneak through.

    None of the stories are particularly funny, though. It's usually just walking them through a simple troubleshooting problem and discovering that they don't know how to use basic tools or even do basic process of elimination style thinking.

    Stuff like

    "An employee calls you on the phone and says that he can't browse any websites. What do you do?"

    "Tell me what program or tool you'd use to perform a Windows password reset."

    About 1 out of every 4 or 5 of our interviewees flub these two questions.

    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.

    Boss is out tomorrow. I took a half day but let's be real I'm gonna leave at like 10.

    Going to the cabin, and going to spend Friday and Saturday night there so I've got to put together a project list.

    I HAVE to:

    - finish my knife
    - work on the blunderbuss (it's not fitting together properly and needs some woodwork)
    - wax my canvas pack
    - get my new mead whiskey flask finished

    I'd LIKE to:

    - work on the other two rifles
    - flintknap a knife point (I'm still shitty at this, nowhere near production ready)
    - work on a bow that's been leaning up in the cabin for almost a year
    - get my canvas tent ready for the camp out in May
    - work on sewing a tobacco pouch out of waxed canvas
    - work on a new pipe

    here's what you do when you're interviewing a candidate for a job:

    look them right in the eye

    begin vocalizing wordlessly in monotone

    don't break eye contact

    if they break eye contact, they don't get the job

    if they start making the same noise in unison, they don't get the job

    continue for five minutes

    if they patiently wait for you to finish, and then continue the interview as normal, you have a real potential candidate on your hands

    Here's the thing. If I'm interviewing and I ask somebody "Do you know Powershell?" or "Do you know Cisco CLI?" I can tell the difference between somebody who actually does know it and just can't remember the details right now, vs somebody who is just bullshitting.

    If I'm asking somebody to describe how they'd use Powershell to solve a problem and they're like "Well, I don't remember the exact command, but it's something like Get Mailbox, and then there's a switch that's like a hyphen and then Username, and then you can pipe that into a CSV..." that's enough for me to know that they've actually used Powershell for something in their life. I don't expect them to remember the exact commands or syntax.

    hey guys this is a quote from me, i said this

    “I am the least anti-Semitic person you've ever seen in your entire life,” Trump Castle said. “Number two, racism, [I’m] the least racist person. In fact, weCastle did really well relative to other people running as a RepublicanMayor of Chat."

    so please elect me

    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant. And I've been doing this stuff for...four or five years. I know what "works" in terms of good internet dating writing. "Works" in the sense of leading to a "date" with a human female.
