Take The Software Development Challenge & Win a T-Shirt


Didn’t you have anything else to play with in your childhood except API-s? We are challenging you to show your software development skills in our Teamweek Backend Developer Test.

Time for taking the test is 25 minutes and there’s no pause option. If you score high enough, you’ll receive T-shirt or even a job offer.

Time to play!

  1. Nice list of things to learn/relearn. Some answers didn’t register, but irrelevant as my gaps in knowledge are too obvious. RegEx is at top of the list. Simple criteria but I failed to come up with one in time.

  2. It would be helpful to point out that the test assumes Ruby (and PostgreSQL). It’s not a problem that it requires it, but since I don’t know Ruby I would have skipped the test, instead of just guessing my way through it. 🙂

  3. I am not a developer but have a team of devs. I have started using Toggl and will be bringing my team on board. Honestly I just want a shirt! Is there any other way I can win one? 🙂

  4. We will look into these issues.

    Regular expression goes int that field without delimiters. We test those expressions against these examples, but it is not seen for the user currently.

  5. It looks like there are some problems with the testing app. I’ve tried to change some answers, but failed to do so. After clicking “Save and proceed”, app will switch to the next question, but if I return to a previous one – the new answer is not saved. And after I’ve refreshed the page it showed me that results were already sent, however, I’ve never submitted them and still got 10 or so seconds. Also, I believe there is some problem with the final page of the test app: “save” button behaves strange. Looks like it’s not saving the selected answer. I suggest to do a thorough debugging session.

    Also, it will be great for some questions to be more interactive. For example, it will be nice if RegExp question would validate entered RegExp on the fly against the provided sample strings.

    Also, I’m not sure how the validity or RegExp is checked in the results, there is no specification of what delimiters should be used or should they be used at all. Example: “/(w)/(w)/” VS “@(w)/(w)@” VS (w)/(w).

    Nevertheless, I like you challenges, it’s fun and also allows me to learn some new things = )
