Found here. Thanks Jeszy for the link.
Press Alt+F2, launch “
xkill“, and click on the window you want to close.
Copy the name of the current file to the mini shell:
“Esc+Enter” (i.e. press Esc, release, then press Enter)
I already knew this. Here are some new ones that I learned today:
The one above has an alternative shortcut:
Paste to the shell the path of the selected panel:
“Esc+a” or “Ctrl+x p”
Paste to the shell the path of the unselected (other) panel:
“Esc+A” or “Ctrl+x Ctrl+p”
These are actually in the man page, so it would be a good idea to read it once :)
Thanks to Andrew B. on the mc mailing list.
“However, theoretical computer science has its uses and applications and can turn out to be quite practical. In this article, targeted at programmers who know their art but who don’t have any theoretical computer science background, I will present one of the most pragmatic tools of computer science: Big O notation and algorithm complexity analysis. As someone who has worked both in a computer science academic setting and in building production-level software in the industry, this is the tool I have found to be one of the truly useful ones in practice, so I hope after reading this article you can apply it in your own code to make it better. After reading this post, you should be able to understand all the common terms computer scientists use such as “big O”, “asymptotic behavior” and “worst-case analysis”.” (source)
I found this list in this thread @reddit:
- Goto stackoverflow.com and search on “programming questions”, “programming interview”, “programming puzzles”, etc.
- Get this book first: Programming Pearls (2nd Edition)
- Get this book: Programming Interviews Exposed
- Search on google for “amazon interview questions”, “programming interview questions”, etc. Find stuff like this
- Read thedailywtf.com to know what not to do.
- Look up the company on www.glassdoor.com and search for interview questions. They are by company.
- Wikipedia is great for learning about algorithms.
I have that Mock a Mockingbird book mentioned in the above link. Eh… it’s interesting but I don’t think it’s very applicable to interviews I’ve been on. It’s basically combinatorial mathematics. Can’t hurt if you have the time.
Above are blog accounts of Amazon interviews. Pretty accurate.
Optional Book: How Would You Move Mount Fuji. Although, this is not as relevant as it was back in 2000. Puzzle questions are almost gone in interviews, but some of the programming questions could count as puzzles. I believe people interviewing for management positions still get them though.
I do have a couple other good puzzle sites but I can’t find them right now. Bookmarked on another pc.
