It’s interesting to look at the world to find interview questions. I’ve tended to gravitate towards some of the old stand-bys, but recently the NBC bracket website crapped out.
Now you can do all sorts of post-mortems on this, but all you have to do is take a look at how you might be able to design it better, so it does scale correctly.
It’s not really here or there, but there are so many things that you can learn from failure, hopefully, the failure of others instead of yourself.
Even if you never design a site that’s going to that used, it’s something that makes you think.
