comment What is the purpose of NaN boxing?
The question, if you dont change any bits, is it a float or a pointer? See this blogpost, it talks about Nan and NunBoxing. wingolog.org/archives/2011/05/18/…

comment What is the purpose of NaN boxing?
I would like to make one little addition, the NaN approch does not mean you store everything in doubles. Just that you share space with a double. For example some VMs (JSC) the value, if done nothing to it, is a pointer. Transformation has to be applied to the NanBox to get the float.

comment The 10 minutes technical interview
To low level for students. Just naming data structures doesn't mean the understand them. Why ask about primary and foreign key? If you know what a foreign key is how can you not know about the primary key. Why ask about static method the are only used in C++ like languages and not general.
