Thanks for your honest and very helpful advice. I never imagined that this would be what an interviewer would assume from my explanation - I'll keep it in mind if this ever comes up.
Posted 28 Mar 2015If anyone ever did ask me about my grades, I'd probably lose a notch of interest in that position.
A Google recruiter asked me for my transcript.
Since I got A/A- on every other course, I think the C stands out like a thumb sore and I'm bound to be asked about it.
Anyways, the reason I got a C is because the course was purely conceptual (not a single line of code) and that's not how I like to learn. I took video game programming during that semester and that's where all my attention gravitated to - so much that my project is on my resume. I figured a little nerd joke before my truthful explanation would make it seem like I wasn't trying to give a half-assed excuse for my grade.
Posted 28 Nov 2014Yes, her advice coincided with "what I wanted to do".
And please don't take this question too seriously. It's just speculation.
Posted 2 Mar 2014If the ground is flat and you consider the +y axis to be the up direction, you can check if the object's y coordinate is less than the ground's y coordinate.
If the ground is anything other than flat you can compute the signed-distance between the object's position vector and the line (2d) or plane (3d) representing the ground.
Posted 28 Feb 2014Hey.
I studied computer programming in my native language (Icelandic) and that was confusing enough. I'd hate to have to go through that in a language I don't know. I've nearly failed tests on basic programming concepts, not because I didn't know those concepts, but because I could hardly figure out what the hell they were trying to ask, and once I did it took forever to compose an appropriate answer.
I'd definitely ask what language their material and exams use. If English isn't an option for both, it'll be tough.
I'm pretty sure it's all in French. I'm nearly fluent in the language, but I don't know any CS or math vocabulary. Now that you mentioned it, I imagine I would have the same problem if I were to study CS in Portuguese, which is my native tongue. I didn't think that would be much of an issue, but thanks for pointing it out so I can prepare myself.
