The experience of the writer just elephanting pisses me off. I can tell you for a fact that if I had guys slinging algorithms around like asked for in the interview, I'd be very concerned. Why?

I happen to be a grunt EE who writes embedded s/w and HMIs. My products NEVER die. Fancy code gives me the squirts. Stick with the basics, don't come up with fancy embedded classes within .h files. You might die (I might be a suspect) before I ever retire.

I am so tired of fancy code that is unsupportable.
