Q:

Tell us about a time when you missed a significant deadline

Answer

Tell us about a time when you missed a deadline.


(or)


Let's discuss a time when you missed a significant deadline.


If you answer something like "You never missed a deadline". Most interviewers will immediately conclude you are not experienced and may also feel you are lying. 


Approach - It is absolutely necessary to accept that you have missed a deadline and give reasons how you resolved and what you learned from it. This will demonstrate your experience.


You could say in one of the first projects earlier in your career you missed an important deadline and made the boss very upset. It was a great learning experience and after doing some introspection, you realized, you could have done better planning, prioritization and communication. Now, you use special tools, processes and methods to address these issues. Now your team, colleagues and management are always up to date so no surprises arise on meeting deadlines. 


Below are few things you may emphasize on in your response...


Effective planning


Procedural Improvements


Better Prioritization


Open communication


Better Status reporting

Q:

What type of inheritance that PHP supports? Provide an example.

Answer

PHP supports single level inheritance.


Inheriting a class would mean creating a new class with all functionality of the existing class in addition to some more. The created class is called as a subclass of the parent class. Parent is a keyword which we use to access members of a parent class. Inheritance is usually defined by using the keyword “Extend”. $this is used a reference to the calling object. Inheritance avoids redundancy of code.


Example:


Class employee extends manager : Here Employee is a subclass of manager.


Echo $this->name can be used to echo variable name of the parent class.

Q:

What is the difference between agglomerative and divisive Hierarchical Clustering?

Answer

- Agglomerative Hierarchical clustering method allows the clusters to be read from bottom to top and it follows this approach so that the program always reads from the sub-component first then moves to the parent. Whereas, divisive uses top-bottom approach in which the parent is visited first then the child. 


- Agglomerative hierarchical method consists of objects in which each object creates its own clusters and these clusters are grouped together to create a large cluster. It defines a process of merging that carries on till all the single clusters are merged together into a complete big cluster that will consists of all the objects of child clusters. Whereas, in divisive the parent cluster is divided into smaller cluster and it keeps on dividing till each cluster has a single object to represent.
