comment 1h coding test for recruitement interview, is it a common practice
@JamesSnell That's a great idea : Set your expectations to be tested. If you don't, cool! If you are, it's not a big deal because you expected it already.

comment 1h coding test for recruitement interview, is it a common practice
I want to note that my current company was getting 20 low-quality resumes a day with no programmer test. With a test in the job description, that number dropped to 2 much higher quality applications per week. Mileages vary of course, but this is just an example.

comment What are the steps required to ensure you've covered technical due diligence when purchasing a software product (and IP) created by another company?
Also, What are the users saying about the product? How long will they continue to provide support? What are the licensing terms, do they fit my needs, and does the company have the right to change the terms later in a way that will make trouble for me?

comment Remake old web forms application in asp.net mvc
That's an excellent point, having to mirror changes on both platforms while one is in development is going to be a nightmare.
