A.Brooks talked about innovative brain power. I’m talking about memory capacity.
Now I see that localSys on a big system is taxing on the aging memory. I guess GregM (RTS) might be a cautionary tale. GregM relied on his theoretical knowledge to pass interviews, but not fast enough with local codebase
Is green field better than brown-field codebase? I guess so, based on personal experience. Green-field projects are rarely given to a new joiner but contractors are often hired on green field budget — like Citi, 95G, volFitter and RTS 🙂
Now consider this separate question:
Q: Are the c++11 QQ topics a form of churn on the interview arena?
A: Yes but c++11 QQ is lighter (on the aging memory) than localSys
Q: how about the Coding IV?
A: still lighter stress than localSys.
