    2. I was just helping a student with his AoPS homework, when I came across the following related problems: Eight people, including Fred, are in a club.  They decide to form a 3 person committee.  How many possible committees can be formed? So we are choosing 3 people out of 8 or . How many possible committees include Fred? Since Fred is taking one committee seat, that means we need to choose 2 more people from the remaining seven, or . How many possible committees do not include Fred? Since we can’t choose Fred, we need to choose 3 members from the remaining 7 or . Since the total number of committees is equal to the number of of committees with Fred plus the number of committees without Fred, then we can say

      Pascal's rule and is Fred on the committee

    1. I got admitted into the Stanford MS Computer Science program which is easier to get into than a PhD program (at Stanford or other top schools). Those schools which don't have a terminal/professional MS degree program in Computer Science (MIT, UC Berkeley, U of Washington, etc.) had rejected me that year because I ended up applying for a PhD. For MS CS, I got admits from Stanford, CMU, Cornell, and Georgia Tech.
    1. Most of these companies use some framework which includes an IDL (Interface Definition Language), and a transport (typically RPC/HTTP). A few popular ones are Protocol Buffer (used at Google), Thrift (used at Facebook, Twitter, ...), and Avro (used at LinkedIn). These frameworks allow applications to expose its interface in an IDL file (.proto, .thrift, etc.). Applications communicate to other applications by calling services (exposed at the server side using the IDL) over RPC/HTTP. Services can be written in any language supported by the framework. Similarly, clients too can be written in any language. These frameworks also support versioning that allows compatibility of newer implementation of services with older implementations of the clients and vice-versa. Other sophisticated features include compression, efficient serialization/de-serialization, etc. Some smaller companies use just HTTP REST. For details, please see:1: Protocol Buffers2: Apache Thrift3: Apache Avro
