I did well at a half-hour phone interview with the manager, but then he gave me a one hour test where I had to implement two classes according to his specification (sorry but I feel it's disrespectful to publicly expose job interview questions).

I only got one of the classes done, so likely I failed the test, however the manager said that he wanted to check out my coding style. I strive to make my code clear and easy to follow, so maybe I passed.

The job I've got is just a contract. I really like the people I'm working with so I might decide not to give it up. They have one project for me after I complete the one I'm working on. They held out the possibility there could be others.

In any case, I made clear during my interview that I would complete my current project. That's likely to take two or three months. The recruiter told me that would fine but the hiring manager said he honestly did not know - the recruiter didn't tell him I said that. Even so he sounded like he understood why I wanted to complete the project.

The new job would be macOS driver and kernel programming.

(Apple has retroactively renamed every version of Mac OS X that ever shipped. What? havent your drunk the Kool-Ade?)

Good luck, I knew you could do it.

You've come far, from being homeless or in a hospital or jail, proving that the cops framed you and getting out, and then getting back into software consulting again.

The system is corrupt, Obama militarized the police and according to the Innocent Project too many people are wrongly convicted:

So you proved your innocence as your own attorney, and got back to doing what you love, congratulations!

My interview is Monday the 19th. I'm flying out way too early Sunday morning, then returning Monday evening.

They booked me into a hotel that charges $237 a night. Hot damn. I would have been happy with Motel 6.
