I had an phone interview that went fine and then I was asked for an in-person interview and to "spend some time with the team", this coming Monday.
What to do now? I am preparing myself for an on spot test. Why not.. Bring it on right? I think that the point of the test, is to see what would / could / should I do to solve a technical problem or bug, to see how do I understand requirements or/and objectives and finally to actually code.
I develop and write codes to solve problems and bugs by: Thinking of the problem, Researching the problem and then just Trying what I got from researching till the problem gets solved or/and the code works, then test it and maybe improve it.
Now this made me wonder, because I, and I assume most of us, uses the internet on daily basis and even in parallel while designing and implementing. And yeah, we built big applications this way and the company sold it. Therefore, if I was asked for a coding test, would it show a Bad Impression if I asked for internet access During the test, a Good Impression or it just depends?
I would like to hear:
Wait to hear or read the requirements. And if it was not mentioned then:
You should ask for it, as it is good to show that you are willing to use every resource available
You should not show that you are dependable
