QuestionMore than one code challenge for a programming job? Pinprofessionalroscler8-Aug-14 21:13 
I recently was approached by an intermediary firm on behalf of another company looking for Android developers.   They asked me to do a code challenge and post the source code to GitHub, which I did.   About 1-2 weeks later, they asked me to do another code challenge for the prospective client/employer at their request.   I've never been asked to do more than one code challenge for a prospective contract/job.  
 
How many of you have been asked to do multiple code challenges for a prospective job?   This seems a bit strange to me.   The code challenges are not major projects.   However they are the kind that would take a full day to complete so they aren't completely trivial either.   I'm trying to find out how common this is and whether or not I should assume that the prospective client/employer isn't really serious and is just "kicking the (my) tires" by asking for multiple code challenges.
