  1. Hello Everyone, I am currently in the process of applying for jobs and am running into a problem. I am having trouble answering the question reference "Why do you want to work here?" I understand that the interviewer is expecting me to express my interest in the company, but I'm struggling to come up with the right words. Has anyone else struggled with this question? If so, what strategies did you use to answer it? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hello everyone, I'm having trouble understanding the GCD of two numbers in Java. I'm trying to understand the algorithm and code from an online resource but I'm having trouble with the code. The code provided is: public static int gcd(int a, int b) { if (a == 0) return b; return gcd(b % a, a); } I don't understand why the code is written this way or what it is doing. Can anyone provide some insight and explain the code to me? Thanks!
  3. If a programmer does not learn how to manage memory properly, it can lead to several problems such as memory leaks, inefficient memory usage, and poor application performance. Therefore, it is essential for a programmer to have a good understanding of memory management concepts and techniques to optimize memory usage and reduce memory consumption.
  4. Yes, Go and Rust are good, if not better, alternatives to C and C++ for programming operating systems, applications, and games. Go and Rust are fast, efficient, and modern computer languages and offer advantages over C and C++, such as better memory management, improved garbage collection, faster compilation times, and more flexibility. However, they are still less mature than C and C++, so they may require more debugging and may lack features and libraries. Ultimately, it depends on the type of project and the programmer's experience and preferences.

    No, HTML is not a software like Python. HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language and is a markup language used to create webpages. It is not a programming language and cannot be used to write code. You can edit HTML directly, but you need to use a text editor (like Notepad) or a web development tool (like Dreamweaver) in order to do this.
  6. Create an algorithm for the Subset Sum problem that runs in time O(nK) or better. Given a set X = {x1, x2, …, xn} of n integers and another integer K, the algorithm should check if there is a subset X' of X whose elements sum to K and if so, it should find this subset. For example, if X = {5, 3, 11, 8, 2} and K = 16, the algorithm should answer YES since the subset X' = {5, 11} has a sum of 16. I have referred to this code from the issue I'm trying to solve: please stop spamming us with advertising! I believe that utilizing dynamic programming techniques can improve the complexity of the problem from O(nK) to something lower. I have discovered an algorithm that runs in exponential time, but it has not been of any assistance. Is there anyone who can help me with this issue?
  7. Consider the example: class Quirky { public static void main(String[] args) { int x = 1; int y = 3; System.out.println(x == (x = y)); // false x = 1; // reset System.out.println((x = y) == x); // true } } I am unsure whether the Java Language Specification contains a rule regarding what value should be loaded to compare with the right side (x = y) of an equation, given that the value on the right side should be calculated first according to the order implied by brackets. Why does the first expression evaluate to false, but the second evaluate to true? I would have expected (x = y) to be evaluated first, and then it would compare x with itself (3) and return true int oldX = x; x = y; return oldX == y; which, being even simpler than x86 CMPXCHG instruction, deserved a shorter expression in Java.
