Interview Question

Senior Build and Release Engineer Interview Palo Alto, CA

I was interviewing for a build and release position, and

  after answering many relevant scripting and SCM questions, an interviewer who ran out of things to ask asked me to in detail describe, the process for a c write() command making it to disc. I was asked to describe all of the buffering, system calls, etc.

I have never been asked such an irrelevant question in my 25 year career. When I asked the developer what he worked on, he said "virtualized file systems." So basically - "please describe my grad school thesis to me"
