HP Interview Placement Paper : (II)

Make a note that Technical round is the main one.I think there wont be any elimination at HR level unless luck unfavours us.Added Experience is Definite Added Advantage. In general section they r asking questions like Who is CEO ,founder of HP,Microsoft,Oracle.. some questions u will get from following list IT Gurus

1) Tim Berners Lee -- Founder of the World Wide Web

2) Bjarne Stroustrup, C++ Stroustrup called his new language \'C with Classes and then \'new C\'.Because of which the original C began to be called \'old C\' which was considered insulting to the C community. At this time Rick Mascitti suggested the name C++ as a successor to C. 

3) Michael Dell of Dell Computers 

4) Larry Ellison of Oracle Larry Ellison and Bob Oats were working on a consulting project for the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency). The code name for the project was called Oracle (the CIA saw this as the system to give answers to all questions or something such). The project was designed to help use the newly written SQL code by IBM. The project eventually was terminated but Larry and Bob decided to finish what they started and bring it to the world. They kept the name Oracle and created the RDBMS engine. Later they kept the same name for the company. 

5) James Gosling,and his project is now known as Java Originally called Oak by creator James Gosling, from the tree that stood outside his window, the programming team had to look for a substitute as there was no other language with the same name. Java was selected from a list of suggestions. It came from the name of the coffee that the programmers drank. 

6) Bill Hewlett(L) and Dave Packard(R) of HP. Behind them in the picture is the famous HP Garage. Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard tossed a coin to decide whether the company they founded would be called Hewlett-Packard or Packard-Hewlett.

7) Ken Thompson (L)and Dennis Ritchie(R) ,creators of UNIX, B and C Dennis Ritchie improved on the B programming language and called it \'New B\'.He later called it C. B was created by Ken Thompson as a revision of the Bon programming language (named after his wife Bonnie)

8) Larry Page(L) and Sergey Brin(R), founders of Google. Google was originally named \'Googol\'. After founders (Stanford graduates) Sergey Brin and Larry Page presented their project to an angel investor, they received a cheque made out to \'Google\' !

9) Gordon Moore(L) and Bob Noyce(R) ,founders of Intel Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore wanted to name their new company \'Moore Noyce\' but that was already trademarked by a hotel chain, so they had to settle for an acronym of INTegrated ELectronics. 

10) Andreas Bechtolsheim , Bill Joy, Scott Mc Nealy and Vinod Khosla of SUN(StanfordUniversity Network) MicroSystems Founded by four StanfordUniversity buddies, SUN is the acronym for Stanford University Network. Andreas Bechtolsheim built a microcomputer; Vinod Khosla recruited him and Scott McNealy to manufacture computers based on it, and Bill Joy to develop a UNIX-based OS for the computer.

11) Linus Torvalds of Linux Operating System Linus Torvalds originally used the Minix OS on his system which he replaced by his OS. Hence the working name was Linux (Linus\' Minix). He thought the name to be too egotistical and planned to name it Freax (free + freak + x). His friend Ari Lemmk encouraged Linus to upload it to a network so it could be easily downloaded. Ari gave Linus a directory called linux on his FTP server, as he did not like the name Freax. (Linus\' parents named him after two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling)

12) Steve Woznaik(sitting) and Steve Jobs of APPLE Computers Favorite fruit of founder Steve Jobs. He was three months late in filing a name for the business, and he threatened to call his company Apple Computers if the other colleagues didn\'t suggest a better name by 5 o\'clock.
