If you are interested in VMware opportunities, here is my referral link.

Many IT companies use code online judgement to evaluate candidates. Especially the big ones. e.g, Google, Facebook, Amazon, etc.

When I first heard of this, I felt being humiliated.

Kidding me?


1 Why I Maintain This Blog   BLOG Life


With ten years’ working experience, now you question me to detect whether a graph has a loop? As an infra engineer, I have never used a graph algorithm at work. It might be useful for some roles, but just irrelevant to me.

Lots of debates for this stupid code test. And yes, I hate it. But why I hate it so much? After thinking deeper, I realize part of my resistance is fear of rejections.

I admit I’m not so smart or clever. Most of the time I’m just diligent. And I had bad experience when I took ACM programming contest at college. Maybe I shall say, frustrating.

But it is what it is!

So why not stand up and conquer it? Maybe I can collect some interesting code puzzles? Help people to be more ready for the future coding interviews. Especially emotionally ready, I mean.

(Leave me comments! Help me to help others.)
