Day 5 (September 23rd) - Google Interviews

The fifth day in the series is not particularly interesting to be written. The day started with me getting up at around 8am, prepared, and went down to the lobby to have breakfast with Jack (from Australia) and Jonathan (from Malaysia) in a Subway outlet nearby. It was mildly raining at that time, but the weather got better later on. Andoko departed at around 11am, after we checked out of our rooms. I left my luggage with the concierge since I was going to go to my uncle and auntie's house only later in the afternoon after the interviews.

My interviews were scheduled to begin at around noon, started with a lunch in Google's. It was a series of four interviews to finish later in the afternoon, which I can't disclose the details since it's under NDA. Jonathan was having the same interview schedule with me, but with different interviewers. During the lunch (before we started), I also met Ardian KP and Prima, who had already finished theirs and are going to depart from Sydney in the afternoon.

After the interviews, we returned back to the hotel. I waited a while for my cousin to pick me up, and Jonathan was waiting for his airport shuttle to arrive. My cousin (with his wife) took me to dinner (in a Korean/Japanese restaurant) after that, and my uncle picked us up back in the hotel after we finished. I'll be staying in their house for the next three nights while travelling around Sydney.

Wow, hey there!

Two years later I was trying to find the month of Codejam for my CV and I stumbled upon your blog posts. I'm glad you made them, I remember the event fondly :) Do you mind if I keep a copy of the photos for my records? Probably wont be using them publicly.

I hope you're well and life is being awesome :)

All the best,
