Hey! I have solved 1 question in codevita season 8, actually, I have attempted 3 questions where one was presentation error, another was a wrong answer, other was Time Limit exceeded. So, I got a mail that I have qualified first round in codevita, later I got a mail to attend an Interview at Synergy Park, Hyderbad on 30th July.

Me: Java Sir.
He asked about exceptions, Inheritance
T: Difference between Throws and Throwable
Me: Because of my tension, I forgot, But with a straight face I said, I don’t know sir.
He wrote the code on simple Java class and objects on paper and asked the output, which I said wrong and with the discussion with the Interviewer, I could manage to say the right answer. He was so generous.
M: Okay Karthik, Explain about your Work experience as an Intern

M: So Karthik, Explain to me about Flutter and who developed it and what is FFMPEG

Flutter: It is a cross-platform mobile application development framework, Single codebase for Both Android and iOS and easy to design and develop.
The interesting thing is Interviewer actually opened the play store, saw my apps.
M: You worked for StartUp, why you will join TCS? they will pay you more right?
Me: Sir, I can’t take the risk, I have personal problems.
T: So, Why did you choose Flutter, instead of react Native?
T: So, here you need to learn our won framework based on requirements what you will do then?
Me: Sir, I learned Flutter in 20 days, so I don’t think to learn something new will be a problem.
M: How did you get this offer from startup?
Me: They saw my LinkedIn profile, approached sir.
I mentioned my Github link, He also had a glance on that!.

But the Interviewer asked to optimize
After a lot of discussions
T: I will explain see
Me: I was concentrating, I was really close to the answer, because of my nervousness, I couldn’t put that in words.
