When the employer says in the "How to apply" section:

please submit your application (Cover letter, CV, and code samples - on executable files)

all is easy except that part that says "and code samples - on executable files", What do they expect a fully functional small website, OOP classes set get, ... if they would has said write us a code that does 123 that would been much better. anyone got any ideas

I guess this is a typo and should read "no executable files" (because viruses).

You should probably check back with them, asking what they are looking for as executables specifically, and have them tell you if it's a typo or not.

Because, should they actually be looking for executables, it makes big a big difference, what systems they're working with and they should specify that.

  • I guess it is a typo, php position and executable!!!

  • This does seem like the most likely explanation, but yeah, check back with them and confirm! Nov 28 '13 at 21:58
  • they confirmed it is a typo, but this is not the accepted answer you only pointed out the typo.
