comment What Classes as a “C-derived” language
C-derived languages include C, C++, C# and Javascript. Any one of those languages ought to be suitable. GeeksForGeeks successfully uses C almost exclusively to demonstrate algorithm design. I would imagine they chose C because it's the language closest to being platform-independent, and the core language itself is relatively simple. It has the same fundamental forms as all of the other C-like languages.

comment whats the relationship between integration testing, TDD and Agile methodology?
Yet another terrible interview question. There is a cultural relationship between these things, in the sense that TDD is often practiced by Agilists; perhaps the interviewer is merely poking you to see what you know about these subjects. I would have asked "what do you mean specifically by 'relationship?'"

comment How can you build an effective team in a hot desk workplace
How is this really all that different from the current fashion of putting programmers in a large room with no walls, under the banner of "collaboration?"

comment Rest design - Multiple calls vs returning all data in one call
There's singificant overhead in making a REST call. Consequently, there's a strong possibility that 3 is the best approach from a scalability standpoint, especially if you use all of the data so returned.

comment Rest design - Multiple calls vs returning all data in one call
What makes you think the quality of your REST interface affects the salability of a product? Are you actually selling the REST interface? If you aren't, nobody cares what's under the hood. See also meta.stackexchange.com/q/142353

@Bohemian: What do you mean by "deal with?" People problems? Software issues? Planning? Ergonomics?

Rest-like and salable are two different things.

comment how would a project manager get blamed?
Respectfully, your motivations may be a bit stilted. If you're only motivation for coming to work and doing a good job is not getting fired, you might be in the wrong business. Life is too short to be doing something for a living that doesn't intrinsically motivate you.

Your question is too broad to be reasonably answerable in its present form. Try narrowing it down to something more specific.

comment How can you build an effective team in a hot desk workplace
There's so many terms in this question I've never heard of that I have no idea what the question is about. I suspect it's too broad, even if I do know what a radiator and a hot desk are.

comment Why use an opaque “handle” that requires casting in a public API rather than a typesafe struct pointer?
Then what would be the benefit of forward declaration if it doesn't even enforce the type structure?

comment Why use an opaque “handle” that requires casting in a public API rather than a typesafe struct pointer?
Doesn't the "forward declaration" approach still require you to declare the type signatures? And don't those type signatures still change if you change the structs?

Sounds like you need a Data Transfer Object.

Also, note that the Dojo Toolkit has a JSON validator that is released under a less restrictive BSD license.

comment Rewriting a library licensed under AGPL but keeping the public interface
Right, but is it going to cost you more than $3000 to build the thing yourself? I'm guessing that might pay for 50 hours of developer time. Can you build an equivalent library in 50 developer hours? Do you even have 50 hours to spare?

Are these compile-time aliases or run-time aliases?

Questions about program installation or implementation are off-topic here. You might be able to get help on Stack Overflow or Superuser.
