    “Write a program to store passwords in plain text in a Cassandra db” is a famous question

      Your article says “a small percentage of G suite corporate users” vs Facebook’s “hundreds of millions of accounts” - https://techcrunch.com/2019/03/21/facebook-plaintext-passwords/amp/

      Pity that for such a data driven company, your basic researching skills are like your refreshers - piss poor.

      For such a data driven company yourself, it's suspect to say "small number". Don't mind google. He is as toxic as they come. Underleveled and going nowhere careerwise.

      ^ my bad, that deflection attempt makes it sound like it hurt.

      If talking about refreshers is to say people would rather work at google than amazon, everyone knows that. There is a daily blind poll about it.
      You win.

      I just didn't think you would be giving away your interview question like that.
