comment Is TDD viable in collaborative open source projects
@gnat I've searched StackExchange, and there have been a few questions where people ask of examples of open source projects with unit tests, which isn't the same as my question. As per your request, I've added some more information.

@MathewFoscarini I should have made myself more clear. It sounds like you think the assignment is a strange trick question. It's not. The assignment is to write a relatively simple application that will supposedly be judged according to how well the code is written.

This is what I hate about job interviews... the luck involved in pleasing the interviewer's personal preferences. Maybe it should be standardized :)

There is no hard time limit, but just a note saying the assignment shouldn't take a decent programmer more than three hours. Would they really check my git log to make sure that I only spent three hours on it from commit #1 to the final commit?

@HABO I figured that would be another benefit of throwing the code on Github since I could document that in the README file. That way it would be cleanly displayed with the source and it wouldn't clutter up the email.

Would you go so far to say that if a company rejected me for doing what I plan to do, it would be a sign that the company doesn't respect software development methodologies and that I'd rather not work for that company?

The questions are publicly available on their blog (they sent me a link to the blog post), so I don't think they're concerned with that.
