I am interviewing with a company for a software engineering position. As part of the evaluation, I was given an "assignment" with a handful of small programming tasks.
One of the tasks specifically asks that I deliver it using a specific technology, which I have never used (for clarification: I don't list it anywhere on my resume, so they aren't catching me in a lie or anything like that).
Is it acceptable to submit incomplete work now, with 5 of the 6 tasks being completed, along with a note saying something like "I've never used XYZ. If I can take an extra day or so to learn it then I will submit it when it's done, but here's the other 83% of the assignment."
