@MQuy , My Bing experience:

A recruiter sent me the Bing job originally, and I was surprised when they requested the interview, because I didn't think anything would come of it, really. I only had about half the skills they were looking for, and I actually taught myself XML the day before, just to prep for it.

There were three interviewers in a row, mostly asking me about more technical stuff than chit-chat or things about myself.

The first interviewer wanted me to write an algorithm to put a list of operations in order based on a list of dependencies. He said I could use any language I wanted, and I honestly forget whether I did it in Javascript or C#. I followed everything we learned about whiteboarding, and told him I could solve it, but that it wouldn't be fast or efficient (it was exponentially long). Once he saw enough of what I was writing to get where I was going (and that I knew how to program), he started giving me hints about how we could do it faster. I saw where he was trying to take it, and we ended up putting all the data into a tree, traversing that to get the results.

The second guy went right into a programming challenge, and this one was more about logging errors and cloud services, and was more conceptual. He had a heavy Russian accent, and wasn't the best at conveying his ideas across. I asked for a lot of elaboration and kept asking questions. When I finally understood what he was looking for, I realized it wasn't that complicated. He really just wanted me to show him what a class definition in C# would look like for this specific situation.

The third guy had almost no programming questions. All he wanted me to do was to circle the errors in a mock XML document, and then asked a bunch of crazy questions like "If you were the CEO of Microsoft and had to make a speech..." and "If we built a time machine and went back 100 years..." It reminded me of when Google asks Vince Vaughn the blender question in the movie The Internship. I just worded my answers very carefully and thoughtfully, took everything as seriously as I could, didn't ramble on, and tried not to take a huge amount of time before answering.

They apparently must have liked what I said and wrote, because the recruiter emailed me an hour later (I wasn't even home yet) and said they wanted me to start as soon as possible.

Wow, impressive @ZachBowman. Thanks for sharing. That helps me visualize the process a lot.
Tyler Morgan
@toastynerd
@harberg All kind of depends. I would probably make the part that saves it into the cart a service and either leave the part that pulls data from the forms in the controller or make that a service as well.

@ZachBowman
@KuroFluff , Thanks, Andy. I felt like my search wasn't going anywhere very quickly, and then I had this insanely busy week all of a sudden.

Kyle Warbis
@UWarbs
You get back to work. Are you and @aisapatino going to teach code fellows backbone?
Kevin Stephens
@kevinmstephens
we aren't using backbone on our current projects
learning async and lots of _
Kevin Stephens
@kevinmstephens
async.auto, async.which, etc, all stuff that would have been useful in our along the way project
Kyle Warbis
@UWarbs
Does async help with node servers taking large loads?
Follow up, what helps a node server serve millions?
Kyle Warbis
@UWarbs
clusters and load balancers?
Tyler Morgan
@toastynerd
yeah clusters help, let’s you use multiple cpus on the same machine.

.htaccess files are a pain in the ass and despite what the internet says, don't use jQuery notation when setting el in your view.

Thats all.

Andy Ernst
@AndyCErnst
I am confuse
Nicholas Harberg
@harberg
@KuroFluff .htaccess files are used on apache severs. el was in reference to the backbone property.
Andy Ernst
@AndyCErnst
jQuery notation meaning $('#puppies').append('cuteness')? What would you say is good/bad practice in using backbone's el?
Nicholas Harberg
@harberg
module.exports = Backbone.View.extend({
    el: $('#content'),
`

vs

   el: '#content',
``

second version is preferable

Andy Ernst
@AndyCErnst
Ah, so you don't need the jQuery wrapper.
Kevin Stephens
@kevinmstephens
.htaccess is why I decided to be a javascript dev and learn node.
I was like, F- .htaccess I'm out.
Andy Ernst
