Cracking a coding test interview
Coding interviews are always for me an opportunity to learn and grow which is why I wanted to share you my thought process for this one I found this morning at
What I saw when I visited the page
I revisited the application form
I wanted to know what technology was used for this
I was happy to find out it was ruby
And the hint was suggesting I should try json and I did. If you know ruby on rails then it comes to you naturally
But now I am in front of the page with this json payload. It says follow so I followed the link. Once...
Then I said wait...
It was too good to be true. So you have two choices:
- either you go follow one by one the id chain
- or you can just write a bit of function like I did
On the last page: The holy grale
You could have go for an iterative version with a loop
I guess at RainForest they will have to make a new test since you know the answer for this one. Overall I think it way simple enough. We just needed to take each problem one at the time and yeah every beginner can do it too.
