It’s a good city. Decently diverse and reasonable cost of living. Also Asian food scene is pretty strong for what it is.

I interned there for a summer. The downtown area is nice and lots of great food. However the asian population isn’t that big unless you’re near duke. It probably has grown since I was last there a few years ago though. Very hot summers, chill vibe, liberal

Echoing EY1 above - asian scene is very limited at the moment. But this will likely change in the next 5 years I think. The area is growing really quickly with tech jobs and it’s one of the best regions for higher education and academic research. I’m planning to invest in a rental property there now

I really liked it. My friend use to live there. Like others have said, not many Asians, but the locals were all very nice to me when I was there.

I’m from Cary, which is the suburb of Raleigh. It’s a good place to live with very reasonable cost of living and friendly environment. It’s not a big city (the largest NC city is Charlotte) but I liked it better that way. Would recommend it but does depend on what you’re looking for.

Just saw someone got denied from a job after counter offering in the coronavirus workplace bowl so wanted to gain thoughts from you all. I received an offer today from a great company and am considering counter offering for them to meet me in the middle since the offer is 20k below my current base salary. I’d like to counter for 10k more on my base salary. Has anyone experienced salary negotiations recently and are they working out?

Just received an offer letter from a tech company based in CA. Only a “background investigation and reference checks” are listed as the contingent portion of the offer, nothing about testing. Does anyone know if they are required to explicitly say whether or not they drug test in an offer letter? Genuinely curious especially with Covid right now and the last place I want to be at is a clinic.

Question: What is the very first memory you have of the police or personally interacting with the police? I’ll go first. My first memory of the police was of having my rights violated and being denied medical care after a traumatic brain injury. I was 12. My husband’s was the police putting a gun in his mom’s face. Details in first comment.

Web development geniuses - tell me what’s so hard about designing a secure online VOTING system to securely cast votes and implement it for US elections? How is it that banks and cryptocurrencies and healthcare data can be processed so securely but when it comes time to build a simple system to identify a person to fill in a voting form and send it securely to the election commission this is suddenly too vulnerable to attack? Sounds like a political move to ban high tech voting.
