re: Good point. There's no absolute answer to this question. This has been and will be a heated discussed topic. It doesn't sadden me, though. I would...

Admittedly algorithms aren't the worst example of "obscure tech question bingo" which a lot of organisations base their interviews around.

It saddens me because I don't think it's a great way to find good developers and will result in plenty of false negatives. So I believe good developers will needlessly miss out on good opportunities. Assessing the way a developer works rather than what they know at a given point in time is a better approach for finding good developers IMHO because the former is harder to teach than the latter.

But as you say this is for FANGs and I have never worked at a FANG and probably never will. And I imagine most of the developers they interview are of a high quality regardless.
