What great software developers do before coding right away


Do you want to do great on your next take-home assignment? If so, this article is for you.

Reviewing take-home assignments is part of my job, and I’ve seen many candidates make common mistakes repeatedly on theirs. And they often happen even before the candidate launches their IDE to start coding.

I want to mention three crucial points to help you prepare the best assignment:

  • Understand the assignment: Solving the wrong problem can cost you the job.
  • Think about the solution thoroughly: Solve the problem in your head before solving it in the code.
  • Choose technologies wisely: The best language to do the assignment is the one you have the most experience with.

Let’s start.

LONDON, Sep 07 (IPS) -
 
When INTERPOL is asked to intervene against targeted killing.

Introduction

Last June, news broke that Iran had issued an arrest warrant and asked INTERPOL for help in detaining US President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believed had carried out the drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad.1 INTERPOL denied this request,2 stating that it "would not consider requests of this nature" because "it is strictly forbidden for the Organisation to undertake any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character."3


Dr Rutsel Silvestre J MarthaINTERPOL General Secretariat, which is the body of the Organisation which has the power to issue red notices4, thus spontaneously or at the request of the USA, determined that the publication of such red notices would contravene INTERPOL's Constitution and/or the rules adopted thereunder. Given Iran's own successful challenge, in 2007, of an Argentinian request for red notices against i.a. former President Rafsanjani and the former foreign minister5, INTERPOL's rejection should not have come as a surprise. However, on the basis of the same experience6, if all the other red notice requests have also been rejected, Iran might want to question that decision. Such challenge can potentially lead to a showdown at the INTERPOL's General Assembly7. The following highlights the substantive issues that would be involved

MIAMI, Sep 04 (IPS) - Why, in the United States, where change is the most pronounced hallmark, do some aspects never change? Why do many bad habits resist giving way to novelties that prove to be the basis of the success of the most developed country on earth and still the leading power?  Why is the explanation for that leadership due to a few factors? Why does Trump profess a visceral opposition to immigration, knowing that it is the key to the country's success? Because millions of his compatriots interpret the sinew of American DNA as a threat to their comparative social advantage.

UNITED NATIONS, Aug 31 (IPS) - When two recent staff surveys, one in Geneva and the other in New York, revealed widespread racism at the United Nations, it triggered the obvious question: why shouldn't the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) probe these charges?

BERLIN / BERNE, Aug 28 (IPS) - The people of the world need to seize the moment and bring about a democratic global revolution. It is time for a global parliament and real representation.

More than 21 million people got infected with the novel coronavirus and over 770,000 have died. Never before did the world witness similar collective lockdowns of social and economic activity that had to be enforced to contain the pandemic.


For many, the corona-related global crisis exacerbates a situation that was already critical before the outbreak of the virus.

The climate crisis is unfolding with record temperatures in Siberia, Greenland, the Antarctic and other places like the Middle East. The new climate apartheid is characterized by whether you can afford to shield yourself from such heat or not. Most cannot.

135 million people are facing crisis levels of hunger. There are currently more than 70 million displaced people who have fled war, persecution and conflict. It's the worst humanitarian and refugee crisis in seventy years.

There is a global inequality crisis. Productivity gains and globalization disproportionately benefit the affluent. Financial assets in the trillions are hidden in offshore accounts from tax authorities. The world's 26 richest billionaires own as much as the poorest 3.8 billion people on the planet.

While global surveys confirm that people across all world regions strongly believe in democracy, there is in fact a democratic retreat. Confidence in the actual performance of democratic governments is waning. Populist nationalism and authoritarianism has been advancing, aided and abetted by social media platforms and the internet. Major arms control treaties are crumbling, geopolitical tensions are rising and multilateralism is under attack.

Civil society and citizens across the world are fighting back, though. Pro-democracy movements are at an all-time high as widespread protests in dozens of countries now and in recent times demonstrate. Freedom and justice have lost no appeal. At the same time, millions of citizens joined climate protests around the world and called for quick and effective action in this critical field.

Dynamic Capital is the worse company to work for, and even worst if you get funded by them. Dynamic Capital is not the main lender; Dynamic Capital is the middle man, they use and sell merchants' account to third party Lenders (onDeck, Yellowstone, Rapids, Can Capital, Etc...). They will "We not your traditional cash advanced" or "With very reasonable rates" or "The ones that tend to be SO expensive" pitch! But all they really do is call merchants' current lender to extend it, and lowing the payments with more days. In insurance terms it's call "flipping the books".

Dynamic Capital will promise you everything, but really take everything away from you, putting you in more debt; forcing merchants to give it up and going under. Taking an Merchant Cash Advance from Dynamic Capital is literally hanging your business by the balls. So, now you no longer the boss of your own business; Dynamic Capital is now your new boss, well literally their hidden lenders are. 


Dynamic Capital MCA Debt bait system : Imagine giving money to someone, who will let you only see the money that you can't really use. How? As soon as you get your funding they start deducting from your account. eg. $30,000 funded amount, plus fees, plus taxes, plus the rates; that combined or double by DC and the main lender-> now the sum amount is about like $47,000 in subtotal; when you pay it back; it approximate becomes $390 for 120 days or 4 month $46,800 (at the lowest rate) this will be your worst nightmare of business. Now, In English-if Big A Business borrowed $4000 today; and in two weeks, Big A Business will have to pay $6000 but only make $7000 biweekly, now the remaining is equaled $1000 to last two weeks. Can Big A Business survive with the remaining?

Working for Dynamic Capital is like being a slave and pawn at the same time.
Dynamic Capital even pitch and convince their new hire the Dream. Dynamic Capital use unemployed people to continue their dirty business work cycle. This way, DC can always have an excuse for taking merchants' money, "Oh he or she was a new hire but don't worry they no longer work here anymore, I'm sorry" in the wrong way. DC will say to merchants that they've suckered "I told them to do it this way" counter response. Working at DC, you might think; they care about you or they're going to move you up in the ranks of sales; but that's after you've made Dynamic Capital several big deals, by desperate merchants. 


The Dynamic Capital Employee pawn process cycle is about 2 weeks. During the first week starts Stage 1, which you already a FUNDS MANAGER; train and learn the pitch -long paragraph- about sending an application via fax or email to merchants. Call merchants that have been exhausted by calls over and over by different new hires until they give in; which is consider a Hot Lead for Jr Brokers to chase. The marketing scheme, "everybody needs money, so sell them money" is for Fund Managers to follow. But FM will never get paid the commissions promised for any funded leads. During the second week Stage: learn rebuttals - how to turn merchants' Nos into a Yes. Stage 3: learn and watch condones University strategies tutorial, etc...etc.... If you get past these stages, and if Mike or Steve haven't piss you off at this point; then it's make it to the other side, where the so called brokers are making tons of money. 


Junior Brokers are under contract 1099 form. Jr Brokers work off commission closed deals; that comes from the new pawn hire contact calls, called "Hot Leads" from merchants in desperate needs. It's a who will fall for it, Game! The Jr. Brokers come in everyday stressed and pressured to chasing lead, like its really no money, no happiness, or got no life. Cheers to that! But it's SALES, so they got to make that sale or ABC (always be closing) .

Steve or Mike will say things like, "it's freedom on the other side" or "it takes money to make money" just to find out that you've become their possessed sold out soldier. It seems like everyone working under someone's license; mainly Steve's Capital Brokers team license, making Steve's main team wealthy. While Steve DC Gang fools new hires, merchants, and junior brokers; to believe and assume that they will get rich too someday. But in actuality making donkeys out of good people; with a carrot on top, as DC steers merchants and employees into whatever direction they desire. You've been WARN!
