comment Structuring Procedural vs OO code
@JoeP: Linus objections has also a technical aspect - at least at the time he wrote the post, the real-world portability of C++ was not nearly as high as of C, which is a show-stopper if you are going to write something like a highly portable operating system.

They way you describe the term "procedural" could also mean what other people call "functional". That makes it hard to understand what you are after.

To answer your question seriously, one would either need direct debugging access to your system, or a crystal bowl.

Do you want to monitor the progress inside the (10 minute lasting) upload/response operations, or do you want to know how many uploads have taken place inside the "Parallel.ForEach" loop?

Nevertheless, you are loosing yourself in details, a regular interview will be the wrong place for this.

comment 60 questions to ask the next employer
Your whole "Architecture" part contains questions about a specific software, not about the employer. I would discuss most of those questions after I got an employment, not beforehand, with people from the team, not with the interviewer (and if it turns out the architecture is not ideal, what it undoubtly will, good for you, more things you can improve.)

"What mistakes can you identify in the current mindmap" - that you expect interviews where it makes sense to ask 60 yes/no questions?

comment Are there any programming languages that lack a warning feature when doing an explicit type cast?
What you mean is not "programming languages", what you mean is "compilers". And yes, I am sure there are compilers for the same language (for example C++ or C) where you get a warning for some kind of type casts, whilst a different compiler (sometimes just an older version) won't give you one.
