I know that some people didn't get to the de-serialization it might be a bit long.
The question itself is pretty basic so the objective should be to provide a clear explanation and code.
Interviewer seemed happy that I didn't jump straight to the solution, but instead inquired about any system restrictions, requirements etc.
