Transcript from the "Phone Screen Coding Exercise" Lesson
>> Now, we're at our first problem of the day, the phone screen problem, so I'm gonna click this link, the link is clickable, and I'm using for this one. And I'll pretend like I'm the interviewer, like hey, blah, blah, blah. I'm Jim Young, I'm a senior software engineer in Netflix.
[00:00:19] I really appreciate you taking the time to interview with me today. I know we're all busy people, and no one likes interviewing. So we'll try to make this pleasant possible. Take a minute to read over the questions, read of the requirements, and let me know if you have any questions.
[00:00:54] So right now, let's go ahead and tackle this problem. It's deceptively simple, it's not a trick, but this is similar to questions that I would actually give during a real interview, go and tackle this problem, and see how far you get, and then, we'll go over what my solution was.
[00:01:12] And there are multiple solutions to this problem. And also, one thing to ask is, you said, can I use Google, or Bing, or Facebook, whatever, when you use Facebook, but, yes, you're allowed to look up anything you want. This is the only part of this course where you'll be doing coding on your computer.
[00:01:29] Everything else, I recommend doing it on a piece of paper, cuz that's how you do it in a real interview. For this part, I'm looking for a specific output.
