Why did you leave the previous firm I had worked with for 20 years.

3 Answers

Although I enjoyed working for my last company for 20 year implementing applications for my employer, I retired in Oct. 2014 and purchased a house in Costa Rica. I signed and completed a standard oil and gas non-compete agreement. I found going from hard working full time working to no work very difficult. I liked my work of many work roles during my projects and have extensive Oracle PL/SQL development and tuning. I also enjoyed my recent projects using Spotfire and Oracle Tools to analysis data for drilling, completion and reservoir engineering. However, my company was use to my Project Management skills to complete in-house applications timely, fully tested, fast running and with complicated engineering formulas. Less

What drew you to working in City Government?

2 Answers

I spoke about growing up as a member of a church whose building was once a Jewish synagogue. That inspired my interest in the adaptive reuse of buildings, especially those that contribute to community development and cultural heritage. This interest in turn drew me to public institutional architecture like libraries, museums, and school. Less

I feel that I can be the most helpful to people of similar background and status, who like everyone need appropriate Housing and amenities to aid life to be as it can be for they and their families. Less


describe a program/algo (say in C) to find the L1 cache size of your underlying hardware. No parameters given like associativity, block size etc. You also do not have any mechanism that tells you if your cache missed or hit in the underlying hardware.

2 Answers

Any correct/known answers for this? - Should it be like do some work such that it will fill complete L1 cache and when we have to move to L2 cache, we see a little more latency and thats when we can stop the timer and get how many references were made to L1? Less

(hint: use timers, which timer you'll have to use ill leave it to u)
