Technical post: Autosave with React Hooks A common pattern found in many web apps is to automatically save after every user action. For instance, Google Docs saves changes after the user edits the document. Albeit a common pattern, there are different ways of implementing it, and each has its pros and cons. Here, we discuss a solution which encapsulates the autosave feature in a reusable React component, recently implemented in our software platform, Antha. This component allows autosave to be triggered on (debounced) user?s actions. By autosave we mean saving the changes to the database by firing off an async GraphQL mutation.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Synthace (London, England)


    A screening call, two algorithmic problems on Hackerrank, a walkthrough of an algorithmic problem with an engineer on a call, an onsite interview. The onsite consists of a system design question, behavioural interview, a lab tour, two algorithmic problems to solve on a whiteboard. Generally, the process is non-stressful and pleasant.
