comment How do you maximise the knowledge that you gain from a programming book?
All programming books these days towards the end come up with a short project. Doing that is biggest benchmark anyone can have of themselves to track the progress.

comment Is it just me or is this a baffling tech interview question?
You probably should have replied with an even more cryptic answer to this.

comment What makes the difference between “Hire” and an honest “almost” for final on-site interviews?
Nope. Amazon doesn't give feedback nor does MSFT. I have had similar experiences. Google does give a thorough feedback though when you go in house interview. I also have the same experience of failing in all the big 3 in-houses. The knowledge I have gained from them is quite significant. In addition to your skill set and your performance it attributes to some stroke of luck too. Improve your skill-set and take the battle again and always remember Robert Bruce and the spider :D

comment Feeling well out of my depth
I was about to type the same thing as John Bode, Picking up new skills quickly is something which defines a software developer! All challenges are quite intimidating first two years down the lane if you look back @ this issue it will be nothing compared to what you might be working on then! Take a breath, Have some coffee and nail it down! Cheers!
