Interview Techniques

August 5, 2014August 5, 2014
Having spoken to many of the top tier company executives, they have emphasized the candidates to have passion for technology and why they are leaving a company they already work for. There are many answers to these questions, although, they do need top-tier technologists and engineers. Many of the companies are moving to the cloud and are very wary of the way they spend money to procure this footprint. An ideal candidate will answer questions to the point and keep himself or herself focused all the time to the very questions posed. Deviation of answers from the point and the longer you take to answer their question only lowers your ranking among others to be the very perfect candidate of choice. You also will not speak to age and how you deal with younger and older members on the team, age should never be used, this is a very negative approach. There are many single words that go with un huh and OK or alright that may be expressed from time to time, but being silent and patiently listening and either keeping an eye contact with your interviewer is always helpful. There are also other kinds of etiquette to be observed such as twitching or exercising your fingers or playing with your thumb, scratching from time to time or grappling for answers with long pauses are all contributing to a negative ranking. Most candidates will measure themselves up with clean clothes, a professional attire and a relaxed disposition. Some candidates are nervous but once the conversation starts, it is always good to ask how was your day and some other topic and must not exceed more than the time to allocated for your interview. It is always good to start discussing about your subject. Most times your resume has been read before and they have highlighted them for the pertinent questions they will have for you to answer. A golden rule is not to interrupt your interviewer when he is asking you questions and it is always helpful to ask them if you didn't understand the question and to have that repeated if necessary, they do want you to understand the question and not vacillate on the answer. Companies like google are not interested in your degrees you acquired at college, they want you to be that geek or nerd they are looking for. As long as your sleep, dream code, they are very accommodating. There are companies which I do not want to mention due to privacy matters, they look for brilliant candidates who can simplify code and "automate" processes. There are many trick questions and it is always good for you to be honest and if you are unaware of the technology, you can always let them know upfront rather than to pretend what you are not. The next question would be "Do you have any questions for us" will be asked and you will have to make sure you don't spend too much of their time by asking what you have not heard in this conversation. If you are unsure about the position you are being interviewed for, it is good to always read up the details and come prepared. Always go over your resume and read up on the company you are interviewing for as there may be some aspects of the business that might interest you. Above all give a good handshake and thank them for their time.

How to Build Cloud Today

March 25, 2014March 25, 2014
Cloud has taken a significant role in 2014. Amazon Web Services has created new products and have reduced prices on DynamoDB and various other S3 sectors. They have also allowed Micro servers to be made available at no cost for any user who registers on The prices of VPC network traffic has also been reduced. Many availability zones are now in play for servers to have a good content distribution center. Akamai servers did their role now content distribution can be achieved with relative success very easily by signing on to CloudFront. The knowledge that is needed for many of the individuals who seek to learn about the Cloud should familiarize themselves with products such as Surgient, vCAC, DynamicOps,now acquired by VMware, Hadoop Cluster, AWS, Azure, Terramark and many more. There are other products like StrongAuth, TrendMicro, Venafi and others who are in the domain of securing the cloud environment. The RC3 Architecture is now published on IBM submitted by StrongAuth where the significance of security data is very significant using their Appliance. The nature of deployment are complex, sometimes one has to traverse the data centers to understand various deployments. There are Hybrid clouds, there are Public Cloud servers and Private Clouds as well. For many reasons, there are multiple deployments that require resources such as yourself to implement and understand the nature of deployments. You need to verify the VPC-VPN connections, Routing Tables, ACLs, Security Groups, .ppk keys and much more that are required for a seamless connection to each server. The IAM is now being used by AWS to consolidate the methods of connectivity to each server and there are significant roles that are created by IAM for NAT based instances to handle HA/DR capabilities.
