Hehe Cheesy

I was working in Broadcast Production Labs Research, doing hi-def video stuff and tape recorder controllers with RS422. Not exactly groundbreaking work. It was 7 years ago now though!

After 25~ odd years programming I was asked in an interview at Sony to reverse an array of 10 floats. That was the only question. I kid you not, but apparently most of the applicants couldn't actually do it. I got the job.

What do you do at Sony?

He reverses arrays of floats.  Grin

Well, I didn't get the job, but of course I'm not sure how much it hinged on this particular question.  There were plenty of other pointless quiz questions (e.g. what's the diff between public/private/protected etc...).  No actual coding; I meant, who cares how well you can code as long as you know the different between public and private?  BTW, this was at the head office of a well known UK small-supermarket chain.  My answer to this one was something like "any required libraries, access to an email server (not a definite requirement of course), an internet connection."  Things like that.

And the answer was "the source code"!  WTF!?  I felt like saying "Well, if we're getting obvious, it also needs electricity.  And oxygen for the programmers.  And gravity to keep it anchored to the earth" .  The interviewer then spent 5 minutes explaining what CI was and why it was used, presumably under the assumption I didn't know, although I was so incredulous I'd stopped listening by this point.  I just wanted to say "I do known all this, having used it for years" but I thought it would sound a bit blunt.

Sounds like you dodged a bullet then (assuming you weren't offered a placement)... interviewer was basically being a bit of a dick if they hinged any import on the answer to such a question.

Sure. What I understand here is that it was annoying because there was only one and only super smart accepted answer.

Ah, come on. You should be able to work your way out of ambiguous questions - just keep asking questions, that's your job - coding is a given.

You wouldn't want to work anywhere anyway where employees are selected by guessing games...
