Hello everyone,
I have an onsite scheduled for snap ny office and it seems they have slightly different approach for interview. Recruiter mentioned about full-day project and I can use my own laptop. While I lied the idea, I would like to know what to expect and do I need to setup environment for specific technology/language. I have always been backend engineer. Any help is appreciated.
Have a good weekend :)

    Any language you want,
    You should set up your environment of choice. Takes ~30 min to get everthing set up but
    It’s not hard, and mostly focused on logic/coding. I just used Imtelli -J didn’t use anything else.

    Tbh the project was very annoying to code with a bunch of edge cases, wouldn’t recommend lol.

      Btw should clarify - the 30 min they will help you set up whatever the projects need (eg it needed to communicate with an external service). But as an engineer as long as u have like intelli-J for example, you won’t need any other libraries or technologies

    Snap as in Snapchat? That's still a thing?

      Yup, and investors think so too. Stock has bounced back since it hit a record low in December.

      Still... What's the long term financial goal for emojis and selfies 🤳?
      Highly (wish this wysiwyg had option for Bold) overrated and fading
