>>52520136 On my interview they asked me things like "How do you change directory in the terminal" and "Where are system logs located". Installing Ubuntu doesn't teach you that. You know, questions to make sure you actually have Linux experience.
>>52520258 >>52520269 >>52520271 It's the basics but it's more than people expect you to know. I remember when, in a previous job, one of your vendors sent a support person out because the server they remotely managed lost network connectivity after one of their updates and none of us had login information on it. She had a whole day prepared to teach us the basics of RHEL (like cd, ls, tail, all that) but when we told her we were good she was pretty surprised. Nobody really expects the average schmuck to know those things.
>>52520318 Because the code was submitted any number of completely random-as-fuck ways from improperly pasted out of notepad, to attached as a proper SQL file, to attached as a .docx with formatting placed on it. And some required particular orders, but fuck if that makes a difference as to how it's submitted or even listed.
Plus having to be on call 24/7 listening to whiney babies piss and moan about how their code worked in testing (Yeah, you copied and pasted it successfully. How about you actually RUN it?) but because it didn't work in prod, it's our fault, and we all get to be up until 5am finding out why only to then get bombarded with calls because "OMG THE SITE BROKE?! FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT" before we can revert. (Hah! Revert... That's funny.)
NOT worth the $5 an hour increase, and move to salary instead of hourly.
>>52520453 There's many possible answers to it, that's one of them. The go-to one for me would be "you deleted the file but it's still open by a program", since that's not unheard of with poorly written software.
>>52520562 You would think, but no. Do this: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/shm/test bs=1k count=1M in python: f = open('/dev/shm/test', 'r'), leave python open note used space on /dev/shm rm /dev/shm/test note used space on /dev/shm, it will still show 1GB used (plus whatever may have been there before) exit python used space will now go back down
>>52520652 /dev/shm is a normal tmpfs on any modern system. It acts like any filesystem, just sits in RAM rather than being associated with an actual block device/file, network resource, or any other mountable.
>>52520670 >>52520652 And ironically, /tmp is actually not a tmpfs on many systems. Debian and presumably most derivatives keep /tmp on the root filesystem (or designated partition). So using a true tmpfs like /dev/shm is not only faster but will save you HDD/SSD writes.
>>52520698 What we just did for a recent round of hiring was quiz people on whatever they actually put on their resume. So if someone claimed to have Linux experience, they'd get tested on that. If they claimed to know Python, they'd get tested on that. If they made no claim to know something, they didn't get tested on it. Unsurprisingly, the bullshitters didn't even make it past the phone interview.
>>52520780 I am talking about the shit where I go in for the interview, show my skills, and they outright say I need more exp but otherwise seem qualified. This actually happens. Its even better because most of the shit mom and pops that do this are your typical Suburban Richfags who tried running a business. It would be like "Son fix my computer" except they pay you.
