    What do they expect?

    Hey guys,

    I'm going in for an interview for a small software company internship (I'm still in college). Their description is as follows:

    Developing high-quality software solutions for modern image item processing while working with senior programmers to get a better understanding of the business. The skills needed for this position are C++, Windows based Operating Systems, relational database, object oriented software or design, client server applications, and sockets and named pipes for communication is a plus.
    What kind of C++ programs should I show them in this case?

    Thanks.

    Presumably you should:

    1) Show some project done in c++.
    2) Show that you know some SQL, maybe a database project you have done in school with MySQL.
    3) Be able to talk intelligently about classes, inheritance, polymorphism, etc.
    4) Know what client server is, and a bonus would be if you have written some kind of small client server app with BSD sockets.
    The crows maintain that a single crow could destroy the heavens. Doubtless this is so. But it proves nothing against the heavens, for the heavens signify simply: the impossibility of crows.

    Yes, but do I show a C++ program that connects to a SQL database or what?

    write a program that uses classes for inherit an object called balloon. then display many balloons on the screen and connect to a database just to add the word balloon somewhere, then you say that inheritance is as easy as balloning
