I'm having a practical test for a job oportunity tomorrow. The job involves mainly, although not only, software development, which is what the test will be about.
I was told I would be given a problem to solve, and they would evaluate the way in which I solved it, also it was up to me to choose what plattform or programming language I was most comfortable with.
My concern with this is that the technologies I feel most comfortable with might be at least somewhat outdated by now, and I don't feel I have enough experience with newer/better options to do an okay job.
So I can't decide between playing safe and try to do a good job, although probably not very exciting for them, with the tools I know I know, or risking a somewhat likely hit and miss with something fresh.
What would be the best approach here?
