How to Prepare for Your Data Engineering Interview

  • In an interview for any Engineering role, the interviewer wants to understand if you have good analytical skills, problem-solving ability, communication, work culture and ability to build technical solutions.
  • In this article, we will cover how to best prepare and perform at each type of Data Engineering interview, ranging from algorithms, system design, SQL questions, to the essential behavioral component.
  • On-site interviews are very costly in terms of time and team resources, so companies don’t want to spend hours on a candidate who can’t code well.
  • Expect a 30–60 minute teleconference call answering basic DE concepts or classic SWE questions, usually from a member of the engineering team.
  • They are looking for people with basic knowledge in SWE and DE, problem-solving skills, and ability to communicate technical information.
  • Expect 30–45 minutes interview with 1–2 medium-hard questions to solve on the fly on a whiteboard, constantly communicating requirements and solutions with the interviewer.

Why do we need to bind methods inside our class component’s constructor?

  • Through this article, I will first try to explain the binding inside the constructor function.
  • Once we acquire that knowledge, we will try to answer why arrow functions don’t follow the same ceremony.
  • Armed with this knowledge, let’s try to understand what happens when you pass a function prop into the child component.
  • In the following code example, we have created a dummy class component to mimic React Component mental model.
  • This TypeError is obvious now because this is pointing to the props object which doesn’t know the existence of any setState function.
  • Moving forward, we shall try to find out the answer to our second question.
  • I hope you have enjoyed reading this article and now will be able to answer the question confidently.
  • I highly recommend reading this article by Dr. Axel Rauschmayer for a more detailed description of how this works.

Improving the Stack Overflow search algorithm using Semantic Search and NLP

  • Due to the suboptimal performance of their search engine, a user would have difficulty getting his doubts cleared through their website and would thus decide to use a more sophisticated search engine like Google for their purposes.
  • Our objective is for the platform to actually understand the content of what the user is trying to search for, and then return the most similar results based on that.
  • In order for our model to understand the raw text data, we need to vectorize it.
  • Thus I decided to train a Word Embeddings model from scratch using Word2Vec. The column post_corpus in our dataset, comes to shine here.
  • Since Word2Vec is an unsupervised model which just requires a corpus to train on, we need to provide it as much text as possible for it understand the vocabulary.
  • Thus we use post_corpus to train Word2Vec because it is a combination of the title, question, and all the answers for a post.

Elizabeth Warren is rising. But Joe Biden keeps leading on electability.

  • Still, multiple polls throughout the 2020 cycle have shown that Democratic voters would choose the more "electable" candidate -- the person seen as having the best chance of beating Trump -- over the candidate they're most aligned with on the issues.
  • A Quinnipiac University national poll of registered Democrats and Democratic-leaning independent voters released Tuesday showed Biden with 32% support, followed by Warren with at 21% -- a 6 percentage point rise for the Massachusetts senator since Quinnipiac's pre-debate survey.
  • And a Thursday poll of likely Iowa caucusgoers from Monmouth University found Biden maintaining his lead in the state with 28% backing, but showed Warren, at 19%, gaining significant ground since the spring.
  • One month before the 2008 Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton led Barack Obama by 40 percentage points -- 56% to 16% -- in an ABC News/Washington Post poll asking Democrats who they thought had the chance of winning in the general election.

Steve King defends comments on abortion, rape and incest at town hall

  • King was asked in a tense exchange if he would defend comments he made Wednesday questioning whether there would "be any population of the world left" if you pulled people out who were "products of rape and incest," according to a video posted online by The Des Moines Register, which first reported the remarks.
  • King deflected the question, saying the "very active and vibrant left-wing media out there" had picked up The Des Moines Register's reporting that misquoted King and "decided to do a hack job." However, the question posed to him did not refer to the quote corrected by the Register.
  • The quote corrected by the Register to which King referred referenced other members of Congress who co-sponsored his legislation.
  • In one instance, King denied having made the controversial statement in question and suggested to the constituent, "I think you're reading some of this in Spanish," a comment that caused outcry from the audience.

Corey Lewandowski says he's willing to appear before Judiciary panel

  • On Thursday, the Judiciary panel issued subpoenas to Lewandowski and former White House aide Rick Dearborn, requesting they testify publicly before the committee on September 17.
  • White House officials had been engaged in preliminary discussions about invoking executive privilege to limit Lewandowski from complying with the subpoena, despite Lewandowski never serving in any role in the administration, three sources told CNN.
  • When he agreed to come before the House Intelligence Committee for a second time in March, CNN reported he was in no mood to give Democrats anything they wanted, saying he would answer only "relevant" questions.
  • And, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the situation, the Trump confidant repeatedly swore at Democratic lawmakers to make the point he wasn't going to talk further.
  • I'm not answering your "f---ing" question, Lewandowski shouted at one point.
