Hello All FCC Campers!
I was on the interview last Monday to get a Junior PHP Developer job. There were common HR questions like: ‘do you like to work in a group?’ , ‘did you have a situation where you didn’t achieve result you wanted?’ , ‘with what kind of people you like working with?’ , ‘what motivates you?’, etc.
Then there was a test covering CSS, HTML, HTML5, jQuery, JavaSrcipt, SQL. Unfortunately I don’t remember questions because I’ve got only 20 minutes to solve all of them.
Then I’ve go technical interview. There were questions like: ‘what is the difference between abstract class and interface?’ , ‘can interface have private methods?’, ‘what characterizes REST?’, 'what does class property “polymorphism” mean? ', ‘what dependency injection is?’ and so on but I can’t recall more.
This all took about 1,5 h. At the end I was given a task to do at home. And as a matter of fact I write all of this because I need some help .
The task is:
Please implement a tool to convert tabular data between any of the supported data types. Supported types are: json, xml, table html, ul/li html, ascii table, csv.
The tool should be easy to extend by a further data types.
I assumed that in form you choose data type and paste a code of table in chosen data type. Then you choose data type you want the table to convert into. The output is a code of table in chosen data type.
So the input and output are strings.
Thank you very much for your help!
I also encourage you to try and solve this task by yourself. I do it in PHP but you can choose whatever object programming language.
If you have any questions about interview then go ahead and ask
