    It’s funny how people violate their current employer’s NDA and talk about everything in their interview but when someone asks them what was asked in their interview they say they signed an NDA and will not break it.

      That number is almost never going to be public. Isn't that a violation already?

      You’re not giving the actual numbers, just the percentage increase.

    If it's not a secret, people usually talk about it.

    If it's public, put it up on resume.

  • If it's a visible feature, it got announced or included in the docs.

    Copy. Paste. Done.
