Interview Details

What position do you expect?
What language do you want to answer with? (I choose C.)
What kind of questions do you meet for the online assessment?

what is static in C? how is it implemented by the compiler?
write the definition of a function that returns both the max and min.
why do you use the condition variable?
how to implement a lock?
Under what condition must you use linked list instead of array?
what data structure can you use to store elements dynamically and access
them efficiently?
The complexity of finding any element in a linked list in the worst case.
multi-thread library programming: did you write your multi-thread library
with p-thread? is there any problem you have with you library?
did you do your projects on linux? If you want to find a string in a file,
what command should you use?

Interview Questions
  • Given two classes:

    class B
    // and many constructors with different arg lists

    class D : public B
    D(args_1) : B(args_1) {}
    D(args_2) : B(args_2) {}
    // and many constructors with different signatures similarly implemented
    // some additional stuff specific to D

    Assume that the arg list for B's constructors are quite long and may be
    revised pretty often in the future, in which case D's constructors have
    to be recoded correspondingly. Duplicating the update by copy-and-paste
    will certainly work here. Can you propose a better way so that the
    update can be done in one place without copy-and-paste duplication?
