Conceptual questions

The only area that I never practice on is the design questions. Here is the raw list of some of the questions:

Architectural questions

  • How would you handle a billion updates a second?
  • How would you cache a webpage to make it responsive?
  • How would you do internet video streaming?
  • How would you design live TV on the internet?
  • How would you design an ads system for internet video?
  • How would you distribute cache servers?

Value questions

  • How would you improve Facebook's News Feed?
  • How would you add a feature to bring more people to Twitter?

Behaviour questions

  • How do you stay current with technology?
  • What's the biggest misconception about you and why?
  • If you had to describe what you do professionally in 5-7 words, what would they be?
  • What's the worst job you've ever had?
  • What's your favorite website?
  • Why should I hire you?
  • Who is your hero and why?
  • Why did you decide to get into technology as a career?
