100 Beta Invites For CodeAnthem.com (C# & Java Tests Available)
Posted 13 August 2010 - 02:07 PM
Thanks to the folks at CodeAnthem.com, we have 100 invites to their beta just for Dream.In.Code members. CodeAnthem is a site to test your programming skills. They challenge you to "prove" your knowledge and give you a score accordingly to show to potential employers.
Code Anthem empowers programmers to take control of their career by proving their skills and sharing them. You can take tests that measure you ability to problem solve by writing code in Java or C#, and more languages are being added. Then, you can share you results with friends, colleagues and employers. Include a link to your results page on your resume, in your email signature, and on your LinkedIn profile. No longer do we have to talk about what we can do in vague, buzz-word terms on resumes, now we can prove it.
They currently only appear to have C# and Java tests, but go ahead and signup and give them your feedback:
Well, at least I got "Write a program that reverses a string." problem correct, so pro.
I don't like the idea that each programming test only contains mathematical or retarded string handling problems which have nothing to do with the actual software development which includes datatables and stuff.
The first time I saw the score (2/10, did the problems in Java) was like "Huh?!? I know I did all well, what went wrong?". The problems were very simple... but I think some packages weren't included...
