      Not a joke, valid advice. Go leetcode for 5 hours. The ROI is high.

      The TC/YOE is old too, but you seemed totally fine with adding that...

      Would've been fun if the folks at the airport were wild too! Very very pale. Feels like I'm expecting too much.

      If you’re a gal, post nudes. It’ll go wild guaranteed. If you’re a dude, please don’t.

    5 hours excluding security check:

    - budget travel time back and forth
    - a quick visit to Computer History Museum in Cupertino
    - a lunch in San Jose Japantown and check out a few shops
    - Explore SJSU
    - if you like ciders, Cider Junction in North San Jose-ish is pretty good with 20+ variety of seasonal ciders

    Visit Santa Cruz, or Gilroy or San Jose Downtown. Or hit girls at the airport bars.

      Feeling like it... Yesterday there were some posts on Blind calling the place Man Jose and stuff. Seems real.

    Some things to do in a limited time taking account traffic and all within a manageable grid is Winchester Mystery House which is also next to Santana Row. Then the Science Museum in downtown San Jose. Anything outside of this is to ambitious.
