CRITICAL THINKING INTERVIEW QUESTION
This question comes from Robert Half…
Question: “How do you keep your technology skills current?”
Answer: Your interviewer wants to find out if you are motivated to continue developing professionally and understand the latest skills, trends, tools, and techniques. Have you taken any online classes, or do you spend some of your spare time coding or troubleshooting technology issues? Have you taken on work projects in areas of tech that you want to learn more about?
TECHNICAL INTERVIEW QUESTION (via LEETCODE)
“You are a product manager and currently leading a team to develop a new product. Unfortunately, the latest version of your product fails the quality check. Since each version is developed based on the previous version, all the versions after a bad version are also bad.
Suppose you have
[1, 2, ..., n] and you want to find out the first bad one, which causes all the following ones to be bad.
You are given an API
bool isBadVersion(version) which will return whether
version is bad. Implement a function to find the first bad version. You should minimize the number of calls to the API.””
LIFE TIP OF THE WEEK
This week’s tip comes from Marc and Angel Hack Life: “Even when it seems personal, rarely do people do things because of you, they do things because of them. You may not be able to control all of the things that people say and do to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
