Old Coding Challenges
I was browsing through my projects archives and found a couple of old coding challenges I created during the hiring process of past jobs I applied for. I thought it might be fun to share them. Enjoy:)
Create a web app that allows users to create playlists of ANY tracks on SoundCloud.

A Facebook recruiter reached out to me in 2014 about a front-end engineer role. I could not resist and entered the interview process, however, after a successful coding challenge submission I failed the on-site interviews in Menlo Park.
Given a set of events, each with a start time and end time, render the events on a single day calendar.

This one was for a freelance project in 2019. I successfully passed the interview process but ended up not working for them for other reasons.
[…] App […] which gathers data from two endpoints asynchronously, merges the responses and displays them in any way in the browser.

Bonus Track: Prezi
I applied to a developer position at Prezi.com in 2012. They did not ask for a code challenge but I was invited for a non-binding probation week and starting with a self-introduction using the company’s own presentation product. They offered a job but ended up not working for them because I decided to join SoundCloud instead.
