What is wrong with the following code

Posted 02 October 2012 - 10:57 AM

Sorry for the ambiguity of the topic but I really don't think another title would be fitting.

I recently applied for a job made it through the selection phase and was given 3 interview questions

one of which is the following:

Our organization is conducting a small pilot project in xx district, aimed at
encouraging dialogue between communities by providing a free SMS group
messaging system. The project was assembled very quickly, but has been
running for the past month on the following codebases:

1.https://github.com/adammck/smsapp

which depends on the following:

2. https://github.com/adammck/pykannel
3. https://github.com/adammck/socialsms

for the purpose of this question you only need to identify any problems you see with the code base labeled 1

According to their specs they put together the above SMS app and they used it in a certain district however they want to implement it country wide.

What do you think is the problem is any with the above code base?

Im holding back my reply so I see what other python experts come up with. Im just curious to know how I did in the second part of the interview.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Trust me my answers have been submitted and there is nothing i can do about it, this happened about a week back.

I didn't want to influence any answers that's all....this was my reply the way the program is currently written it won't be able to scale to be efficient for a country wide deployment.
The problem is the way it waits for all messages to queue up before sending them.

The only way i can prove to you is by taking a screen shot of the email that had already been sent with the attachment if that's what it will take to convince you i can send it to you

Does no one have an answer? Today was date the project was supposed to start and I did not get a response so Im assuming I did not get the job, would someone just confirm if my above answer was right/wrong?

Just curious to know if it was the answer or the price I quoted them.
