 Write a Java program that takes a 2D bitmap (represented as a 1D array of integers), and reverses it about its vertical axis.4 AnswersI asked the interviewer whether I'm also provided with a width, so that I know how to interpret the data in the 1D bitmap, and he said yes. From a high level, you need a doubly nested for loop: the outer one iterates over the rows, and the inner one iterates over the elements, reversing them as you go along.function flip(array) { if(array.length === 0) { return []; } var done = false; var pos = 0; var result = []; while(!done) { done = true; result[pos] = 0; for(var i = 0; i >> 1; if(array[i] > 0) done = false; } pos += 1; } return result; }In Python: array1d = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15] #------------------------------------------------- def flipV(arr, width): rows = len(arr)//width for i in range(rows): # [0..rows) start = i * width # index of first element in row end = start + width - 1 # index of last element in row while start < end: arr[start],arr[end] = arr[end],arr[start] start += 1 end -= 1 #------------------------------------------------- def print2D(arr, width): rows = len(arr)//width for i in range(rows): # [0..rows) rowStart = i * width # start of row(i) for j in range(width): # [0..width) print(arr[rowStart + j], " ", end='') print() print(array1d) # original print2D(array1d, 4) flipV(array1d, 4) print(array1d) # flipped print2D(array1d, 4)Show More ResponsesResult: >>> Input [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15] 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 Output [3, 2, 1, 0, 7, 6, 5, 4, 11, 10, 9, 8, 15, 14, 13, 12] 3 2 1 0 7 6 5 4 11 10 9 8 15 14 13 12

 What is your salary range?2 AnswersTry to avoid this at all costs.You could have told them that it was too early on to discuss this and that you needed to find out more about the job.

### Senior Software Developer at Flinks was asked...

 This kind of test doesn't imply any 1-1 interview, nor technical verbose definition, nor any multiple choices, but is rather mainly an online simulation test aimed on your understanding of automated testing. That's what the test is mainly about. The idea is being able to generate 50 successful tokens in a row through username&password login. So in order to get a successful token, you'll first be asked to find a way to generate proper username and password combination to login. A hint... the username and password are the same and are mainly composed of four identical numbers series... At least the combo worked in my case... The next catch is to override a maximum of 10 tries. When you'll reach the 10th you'll probably hit a message saying you've been detected as a bot! A way to override this issue by clearing the cache at 9 and also restarting same session with different fake Selenium drivers and proxies. As proof of success, I also added a line of code enabling to take a print screen jpeg image of each successful token and save it on temp directory, just to make sure. So that was it.1 AnswerI was able to get the 50 requested tokens in a row and found it a fun challenge, but that was about it. After much thought, I wondered if it would really worth to go further. I felt this kind of test was pretty basic and wasn't mature. I felt there could have been other better ways to test a developer skills and expertise dealing with system security. I mean the company pretends to deal with safe banking transfer process. I also went to the root and found who they were associated with and it stopped right there. No more comment to add.

### Software Development Manager at Nokia was asked...

Oct 7, 2012
 I was asked some questions about C/C++ memory management on mobile devices. Also, questions regarding Java class usage on J2ME devices, where using many classes could be very costly performance-wise on low-end Nokia devices. While not necessary for a manager to know this, it might have helped my chances getting the job.1 AnswerAs is often the case, my application was sponsored by a former colleague, now working at Nokia.
