FooBar with Google?

Coding Challenge Coding Live

this is the repo where most of my older academic stuff is. (blamestross is my personal account). It is a bit ironic because we do everything on university hosted private gitlab server BrendanBenshoof

Interesting. I tried logging into the site and it says To login, you have to have logged in before. Confused? Search on…

Check this sub-thread of the other mitem?id=8590155. Someone goes into more depth about it.

I apologize for going all reddit on you but: Duh.

Same here, though in my case it was LinkedIn.

Seems theyre pushing to recruit Python engineers? I should really branch out from PHP and Perl…

I also got the code challenge from google. I was searching angularjs directives

Those are mostly just using foobar as an example path in documentation.

No puzzle here. You can only log in if Google has flagged your search topics.

There are quite a few matches for foobar https:

Do they ask you to remove the repo? I cant find any python code on your GitHub blamestross

I followed it and was led to a pseudo-shell, where I then found some coding problems. I can return to the page to continue working on them.

Can you elaborate? I dont understand.

I got asked to interview for google due to python code on github, others I know have had similar invitations to interview as a result of python experience. They seem to be on a hiring push right now.

I was searching stuff on Python lambdas.

No, not Google 🙂 Just been lurking on HN for a while and never had anything interesting to add before.

On the plus side: you will probably learn a lot.

Apparently this link will show up in your search results, but only when it finds you can you login and start the coding challenges.

People who havent applied to Google yet: be warned that its a long process that will take you a lot of time, and that the rejection rate is really high.

I was Googling some Python topic when my search results page suddenly split in the middle with some text saying something to the effect of You speak our language, would you like to take a test?, linking to http: .

That string is appended to the url of the iframe: +window.location.search

Also, its interesting that this account was created so recently… maybe this is Google itself.

wow, i should publish my code on github more.

On google search, you have the variable window.location.search = ?gfe_rd=cr&ei=XXXGyZiVNHoFcuF8Qe7wYHACw&gws_rd=ssl
