Seems like no one's responding even after forwarding everywhere.
Looks like this platform is my last hope.
What am I trying?
Trying to add external display using USB 3 to VGA Fresco Logic 2000 chipset adaptor by compiling a driver and loading a module in the kernel 5.4.0-84-generic in Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS.
Problem I am facing.
As soon as I load the modules, the screen flickers, and lsmod shows used_by 1 but there's no display on the target device and the used by in fl2000 goes back to 0.
Any suggestions on how do I extend my screen to 2 external monitors with 1 HDMI out?
Tried video streaming from USB C out to HDMI in but that isn't working.
My single HDMI port supports upto 4k output so we should be able split and run upto 4 1920p monitors.
Not sure which adaptors would work for this.10
Me: So we're deploying this today on prod.
Junior: Can you record the deployment steps for us so that we can deploy whenever you're unavailable?
I liked their enthusiasm though.
Maybe it's just too early as these chaps don't even know the basic commands right now.
What y'all have on this?12
Tech Lead: We need to exclude logged in user from our all users API as we don't want to show user's self card on the frontend with other users.
Me (Backend dev): This should be handled by the frontend and they should exclude it by a condition in their loop:
If (user.id != loggedUser.id)
// Add card
We also need self user at several other places.
Tech Lead: Create a query param filter for that.
Me: We should keep our APIs as generic as possible.
(Real thing starts)
Tech Lead: Which has more processing power frontend or backend?
Me (confused): Backend
Tech Lead: This will add a break to our loop and Do you know how much processing power it will take because of this condition?
Me (dead): WHAAAA....?18
Hey all, got my first job as a self-taught developer at the age of 20.
Designation: Software Engineer
Would love to read your journey of getting your first job as a software engineer.1
Hey, Do you think it's common to get an interview take-home test like this...
Write a Python script that:- Downloads the Equity bhavcopy zip from the above page- Extracts and parses the CSV file in it- Writes the records into Redis into appropriate data structures(Fields: code, name, open, high, low, close)
Write a simple CherryPy python web application that:- Renders an HTML5 + CSS3 page that lists the top 10 stock entries from the Redis DB in a table- Has a searchbox that lets you search the entries by the 'name' field in Redis and renders it in a table- Make the page look nice!
Commit the code to Github. Host the application on AWS or Heroku or a similar provider and share both the links.14

Just spent 2 days figuring out the issue for flickering of path drawn on canvas through sockets.
Every team member had already tried to figure out the bug.
I had checked almost everything and at last I was about to give up.
I gave a try, and it worked. How, no one knows...
Just changed 'lineData' to 'JSON.stringify(lineData)'
