in a previous work we also devised a test for new hires.
Given, an empty winforms project and a text file with some text.
In a timespan of 30-45 minutes the test subject had to read in the text file, convert each other letter to uppercase and display it in text box.

Extra points for adding a progressbar and the time the conversion took.

So you read the resume and it says ".net certified" or something similar. The code produced after about 60 minutes: 4 lines, with 2 lines of those in comment.
I even had one who replied "I don't know" when I asked him what ".net certified" meant. D'Oh! | :doh:

So yes, there are those guilty of many a 1D10T errors in tha brain Wink | ;-)
