@Ky ya it's awesome, nice build. The display is square inside the round face but I guess that keeps the cost low

@specter I swear there are many blog posts about the inefficiency of such interviews

On a positive note: I got my bangle.js today! Woot woot

It's huge but I like it. I'm stoked to write my first app. I might try to create a more fluid, stable compass app using tensor flow because this watch has AI

@specter exactly, I feel like people have been saying it before but we really need to refuse to perform these things collectively to change the behaviour and expectations of interviewers

@specter so after trying to complete it after the fact anyway, I wrote to say if that was the barrier I wasn't interested, too bad really as it would have been cool. They are pretty big and have an office in town

@specter it was weird, a bit of add maybe. Each time I would try to focus my eyes would wander to some text or something on the screen unrelated

I went for a job interview today.

The interviewer asked me, “What’s your biggest weakness?”

I said, “Answering the semantics of a question but ignoring the pragmatics.”

The interviewer asked, “Could you give me an example?”

I said, “Yes, I could.”


dropped out of a coding interview because the whiteboard algorithm part froe me up.

why is that even a metric for developer ability?

By using CAPTCHAs you are making your website less accessible on purpose which is terrible on its own, but you justify it by saying it stops bots or only allows humans. You are dehumanizing people by placing criteria on what it means to be human that excludes disabled people. You classify disabled people as non-human. Even more importantly: You are making these human variations not just variations but disabilities. You are the problem.
