Senior Software Engineer Interview Sunnyvale, CA

what are smart pointers, and how would you implement one?


Interview Answer

1 Answer


You won't win by tackling this problem. Just say I wouldn't...I'd rather use Boost's SP. What the interviewer says next tells alot about what he thinks of you. If he still wants you to implement it, despite your valid objections, then he wants you to jump thru his hoop. If you want to, work on the problem. Otherwise, just call it a day.

He's not willing to find another problem that will show him how your thought process.
