I looked it up (on Google of course) and it seems like this is one of Google's recruitment channels.
You get access to a terminal and a text editor:
Here are the commands you can execute:
You have a week to complete each challenge. I've done 2 of them so far, and requested the third one - they have been very enjoyable and I've already learnt a lot from them.
I'm pretty sure I have literally zero chance of being hired by Google (and I'm not even sure I would want to work for them even if they made the mistake of wanting to hire me), but this has been super interesting so far. And yeah, also a huge time waster, I've been thinking about making the solution to the third challenge more elegant and performant all day instead of doing my actual job.

> The bot I announced in [this thread](https://programming.dev/post/177822) is now ready for a limited beta release.
> You can see an example summary it wrote [here](https://programming.dev/post/313749).
> **How to Use AutoTLDR**
> - Just mention it ("@" + "AutoTLDR") in a **comment** or **post**, and it will generate a summary for you.
> - If mentioned in a comment, it will try to summarize the **parent comment**, but if there is no parent comment, it will summarize **the post itself**.
> - If the parent comment contains a **link**, or if the post is a link post, it will summarize **the content at that link**.
> - If there is no link, it will summarize **the text of the comment or post** itself.
> - 🔒 If you include the **#nobot** hashtag in your profile, it will not summarize anything posted by you.
> **Beta limitations**
> - The bot only works in the [!firstname.lastname@example.org](https://programming.dev/c/auai) community.
> - It is limited to 100 summaries per day.
> **How to try it**
> - If you want to test the bot, write a long comment, or include a link in a comment **[in this thread](https://programming.dev/post/314158)**, and then, **in a reply comment**, mention the bot.
> - Feel free to test it and try to break it **[in this thread](https://programming.dev/post/314158)**. Please report any weird behavior you encounter in a PM to me (NOT the bot).
> - You can also use it **for its designated purpose** anywhere in the AUAI community.
Whenever you store a value that has a unit in a variable, config option or CLI switch, include the unit in the name. So:
- `maxRequestSize` => `maxRequestSizeBytes`
- `elapsedTime` => `elapsedSeconds`
- `cacheSize` => `cacheSizeMB`
- `chargingTime` => `chargingTimeHours`
- `fileSizeLimit` => `fileSizeLimitGB`
- `temperatureThreshold` => `temperatureThresholdCelsius`
- `diskSpace` => `diskSpaceTerabytes`
- `flightAltitude` => `flightAltitudeFeet`
- `monitorRefreshRate` => `monitorRefreshRateHz`
- `serverResponseTimeout` => `serverResponseTimeoutMs`
- `connectionSpeed` => `connectionSpeedMbps`
EDIT: I know it’s better to use types to represent units. Please don’t write yet another comment about it. You can find my response to that point here: https://programming.dev/comment/219329
I’m a moderator of a smaller community. I’m posting quality content multiple times a day, and I posted about it in [New Communities](https://lemmy.world/c/newcommunities). The number of subscribers is low but it’s growing steadily.
Could you please give me some advice on growing this community? I don’t want to spam/flood or come off as rude or weird, but I really believe in it and think it would be useful to many people.
There’s a lot of AI/crypto bro type sigma grindset blogspam on the internet about artificial intelligence. It’s really hard to separate the wheat from the chaff and find actually useful or interesting content.

This is something I’ve been wondering about for a long time. Programming is an activity that makes you face your own fallibility all the time. You write some code, compile it or run it, and then 80% of the time, it doesn’t work exactly the way you imagined. There’s an error message, or it just behaves incorrectly. Then you need to iterate on it and fix the issues until you get the desired result, and even then it’s subtly wrong, and causes an outage at 3am on Sunday.
I thought this experience would teach programmers to be the humblest people in the world.
I can’t believe how wrong I was. Programmers can be the most arrogant dickheads you will ever meet. Why is that?
