@george next time I’m in an interview at the whiteboard I’m writing this. Doesn’t matter what question I am asked, I’m writing this

@micah you can probably just say “I pipe the output to this awk command” and then keep putting random characters on the board until they are intimidated into hiring you.

Maintian eye contact while writing on the whiteboard.

@george I have had one awk-related interview question in my career: what does awk do? I said “lots of things” it was an acceptable answer

@george @micah

"can you explain what these flags do?"

"I shouldn't need to. Isn't it obvious?"
