Phil Haack has a post On Hiring Bloggers and Open Source Developers. I guess that I have no choice but to +1.
And if you get the joke, I would like to hire you.
In a recent inteview I had a candidate that had serious issues with:
- Writing an INSERT statement
- Reversing a string
- Searching google*
* That is a skill that you need to have. If you are searching for Reversing a String in C# and you manages to go to the only example I C in the page, that is a major minor point.
