      Bad planning and management. They wanted to take off Friday and decided to make a major release right before the vacation. It got rushed because they pushed it unnecessaryly. It blew up in their faces.

      Weeks ago? lol, they just had one today; gcp's bar is already low and increasingly the bar as a whole at google is getting lower.

    Did some fb engineer write a production system using dynamic programming
    Similar to the interview that got them the job?

    And I'd bet the interviewer is now pulling hair because they cant figure where the bug is since its a NEW dynamic programming code that they have never seen before and the original dev has taken time off for the 4th of July

      FB notably prohibits asking from dynamic programming questions. You should say that when things go bad at Google, Amazon or Microsoft (yes, some teams ask).

    Failure is not optional. Failure is guaranteed. It's all about redundancy among independent failures.

      Worked at both amazon and facebook previously. What i think is great about amazon is resolution to breakdowns is fairly quick as compared to what i have seen in facebook. 1) monitoring graphs are extremely comprehensive 2) ownership of projects is crystal clear to tickets are triaged quicky 3) rollback system for all servers is easy and quick, builder tools is amazing

    • What’s this revert function? Is that a LC hard? Do you mean reverse as in string reversal? Or do you mean revert a string to a different mapping (that’s an O(n) time solution by the way)?

      Please advise.

    • Amazon mkskd
      Some days ago, an Albertson employee claimed fangs are overrated, and Albertsons got way better tech in game. And they did it for a 100post long thread, search it if more interest. Join the band wagon

      Lol that's rich. Def gonna search.

      What do you mean shitposting? I consider memes and gifs as tools that can make other people’s lives better... it will eventually be vital to our core existence as humans

      For many vacations mean showing off every moments on Facebook with status, check-in, photos or videos. Without these services alive during this vacation, they’d find it’s totally worthless to spend $ without showing it off.
