only did cars for a while tesla ruined my taste for it but i keep up a little bit. the china stuff is really interesting because they're making some really neat looking cars that look totally unsafe

That's not even EV specific. Many German vehicle engineers went to China in the late 2000s and now come back with horror stories about the level of vehicle safety and quality control there. From cringe stuff like seating poor fitting valve tappets in with hammers to dangerous poo poo like faulty torque tools that get used to torque wheel assemblies and brake calipers. Oh and every EURO NCAP test of a Chinese production car here is a popcorn event usually.

Also OP you are a cool guy and thanks for the thread, it was a great read although the programming was over my head.

I am skeptical as well. The whole post sounds like some bored engineer wanting to stir up the "normies". Way too many tech and engineering lingo compressed together in sentences.

I consider myself a pretty decent engineer (currently a SWE at Google) and have friends in Waymo. I can definitely say nobody talks like this.

giant 700TB single mysql database

Bullshit. In a sharded setup, maybe. But in a single instance, not possible.

upload a 30MB log via HTTPS POST

Um, ok. But that just reminds me of some quote in some funny movie: "You made me bleed...my own blood!". Mentioning "HTTPS POST" is redundant, unless you are trying to impress some non-technical people ;)

about ~100k lines of C in a single file. code reviews were always a laugh riot

Aha! Got you! You went too far with trying to impress everybody with "tech-speak" to appear you worked in Tesla. What I also didn't mention before was that I also worked at Tesla before joining Google.

I can say for a fact that we NEVER did any code reviews.

You are full of poo poo, good sir!

*I can definitely say nobody talks like this.

Also software engineer, only in European Aerospace - some people do talk like that (I hate it, but it certainly does happen).

*Mentioning "HTTPS POST" is redundant, unless you are trying to impress some non-technical people ;)

Jesus... that's really your complaint about this post?

*I also worked at Tesla before joining Google I can say for a fact that we NEVER did any code reviews.

It ever went past your mind that he might have worked there longer than you did, and that workflow changed to include code reviews after a number of fuckups? Or that different depts might have different flows? Also: lol, you just made Tesla look much worse with that remark.

normies

As a long-ago ex-Googler I find it amusing to watch employees name-drop where they work, always with some underlying subtext implying authority (fully aware in writing this I am also doing the same thing), a trick that carries well because that company allegedly has such a stringent interview process (BS - they hired me). Parent comment doesn't simply imply this but explicitly uses it as the basis for calling OP out. It's amusing because the namedrop is always accompanied by some claim they felt they couldn't support solely through a sound argument.

Meanwhile the points made are relatively sound, 100kLOC C firmware updater set off my BS alarm (assuming 98k of that wasn't some static data tables), and the 700TB MySQL DB while possible is extremely unlikely.. even given a huge JBOD setup which nobody in their right mind would plug into a single server, InnoDB tops out at 64TB per table in the best case, which means OP would need a single database with somewhere around 10 64TB tables

EE as well here, from my understanding, the chargers have the option of AC and DC output at varying levels adjustable on your model and charging needs. Software interlock apparently controls it, so you're not just gonna have kiddies tapping and zapping (I'd hope)

It's DC voltage so not quite as dangerous but lol @ the raw amount of wear and tear that much energy would put on off-the-shelf Li-ON battery assembly

oh sure a software interlock on a HV system capable of dumping 120kW sustained into whatever is unfortunate enough to be at the other end.

from a company that as demonstrated in this thread might have some issues with software design methodology and QA.

great idea!
