I had my onsite rounds with Microsoft.
There were 4 interviews.
Round 1. Given a circular buffer, write Get( ) and Post( ) methods . Get(n) should return the n characters in the string, if ‘n’ elements are not present, it should throw an exception. Put( string s) should put each of the characters of string s into the buffer without overwriting anything which hasn’t been read by Get()
Round 2 Longest common substring from 2 given strings. As I couldn’t give optimal solutions, asked me to write a strcmp(str1, str2) method
Round 3 Write a secure and safe strcpy( ) method . Asked me some theoretical questions about indexing and triggers for sql
Round 4 Write a program which generates XLS column numbers given the column number in decimal.
Input Output 1 A 2 B 26 Z 27 AA 52 AZ 53 BA ...
Good Luck to future interviewers
