— Have you seen the Google Interview videos on YouTube?


Yeah, basically I demonstrated pretty high proficiency in CS and how it relates to JS, and they looked through it as irrelevant... fml

— I have

— They're ALL about O-notation, algorithms on whiteboards, etc

— >too much theory is a bad thing
just how...

— Knowing when to apply certain patterns is the most important skill there is

— Yep

— They just did not understand how knowing your basic theory applies to software development

— You should be glad you didn't get that I think

— Seems like you'd run out of things to do / get horrified by the codebase

— Maybe, would have been fun. They have yet to develop version 1 of their software, so I would have been building it from the ground up
