Today I learned that software developers get bent out of shape if you are capable of writing three lines of code to solve a leetcode easy or leetcode medium in under a few minutes.
There is nothing humble about this brag.
No, my solutions are not “optimal.”
But if you claim to have 10+ YOE and cannot “remove the nth node from a singly linked list” or “rotate an image” (transpose a matrix) or “give the correct change in the fewest coins” in under two minutes and a half-dozen lines of code, you might question my claim on how fast I can bang out the solution, but at the same time I very much question your ability.
Look, I am not the brightest coloured cookie in the knife drawer, I know that. And I don’t have any great insight in to computer science problems. I consider myself a below average developer with a mediocre education, but…
There’s always a “but.”
But what did you do with your 10+ YOE.
