Disclaimer: UNLIKE my previous article on interviewing, I am not criticizing any company, processes or interviewers. This post is JUST a blog entry and documents my inability to clear a technical interview. If anything, the interviewees this time around were professional, courteous and knew what they were doing. My one and only gripe is with their huge development area, which resembled a...

In fact, last time I checked, I wasn't a 'mock' anything. I get 'mocked' a lot for my photograph above, but that's the maximum 'mocking' in my life sadly. So why does classify me as a mock Sun employee? If Sun would like to offer me a position, I will be more than happy to call myself a mock Sun employee. Or whatever.

Where would you start a newbie on a project like this? (Don't tell me that you won't hire a...

I started work on an existing project at my day job today and the first thing that I had to do was to download all the dependencies for the project. Here is a snapshot of the dependencies folder after I had checked it out of CVS: Wow! That's 21 dependencies in that folder. Twenty-One! Actually, it should be more because Jakarta-Commons contains many separate libraries, which in this case is 14...
