This channel is my initiative to add to the community of programming interview preparation. When I prepared for my first software engineering interview I felt that the resources on programming interviews were not only sparse, but there lacked an abundance of people who could explain answers to interview questions in a way that a student could easily understand. This channel's goal is to make someone ready to pass software engineering interviews at "the big 4" companies and any other large tech companies. I never want anyone to feel the way I felt after all of the rejections I received.

Top real Max Hartung sees a possible complete cancellation of the Olympic Games in Tokyo planned for the summer as a "worst case". For him personally "and for many other athletes" this would be "a tragedy," said the president of the Athletes Germany Association in an interview with Der Spiegel.

However, another postponement is "difficult to imagine. The performance of the qualified athletes is then already up to three years old. That is an eternity in the lifetime of an athlete." In Corona times, however,

This summer , the London mayor, Sadiq Khan, wrote to the owners of a private development in King’s Cross, demanding more information after it emerged that facial recognition had been deployed there for unknown purposes. In May, Ed Bridges, a public affairs manager at Cardiff University, launched a landmark legal case against South Wales police. “The notion of doing biometric identity checks on millions of people to identify a handful of suspects is completely unprecedented. There is no legal basis to do that. It takes us hurtling down the road towards a much more expansive surveillance state.”

It allows us to live a comfortable and easy life. However, if we do not use this energy properly we will soon run out Luckily, there are things we can all do to help our planet and conserve our resources. To begin with, much of the energy used at home goes to heating or cooling our homes. Some of the injures doctors had to treat were horrific. The oil spill near Alaska in 1989 was the worst case of water pollution in history.

Hartung takes a differentiated look at the possibility of holding it one year after the planned date in summer 2020. "I really want it," said the 31-year-old: "But only at the moment when you have a clear conscience I want to compete in Olympics for which I have qualified. But I don't want to endanger other people's lives. "

Hartung is bitterly opposed to the communication policy of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the insistence on an event reminds him of the situation a year ago. In the end, the games were postponed at the time, but it did not result in a "different way of dealing with the situation:" It feels more like the second performance of a play. "

He does not understand "this lack of alternatives", says Hartung: "I would feel more comfortable if the cards are played with open cards. According to the motto: We do not know exactly what will happen, we observe the following parameters, and we want (.. .) Make the most of this difficult situation. "

Overall, Hartung is "disappointed" by the so-called playbook, a collection of rules of conduct that the IOC has issued to the athletes. Details about the options for preparing for competitions on site were still completely missing.

This also applies to questions about flexibility in the schedule and the composition of the bubbles: "I don't like to imagine missing my competitions because of an infection or quarantine in Japan after five years of preparation." Updated versions of the playbook are planned for April and June. Apart from a brief exchange before the publication, the athletes have not been involved so far.
