Computing Thoughts
Quoted in CNN's Business 2.0
by Bruce Eckel
September 13, 2007
Summary
I was recently quoted in an article, and need to correct and attribute the idea.

The article is Want a job at Google? Try these brainteasers first, and I'm quoted in the 6th paragraph:

Author, design consultant, and veteran coder Bruce Eckel likes to have job candidates describe a chicken using a programming language.

Not quite right: the challenge is to "make an object model of a chicken," to test your analysis and design skills. No programming required. And I heard this from Brett Shoemaker when he attended one of my workshops.

Talk Back!
