About the GitHub test

Modern applications are often based on thousands of lines of code and have multiple developers working on them. An efficient collaboration system is essential to the success of such projects. GitHub not only makes managing versions of code projects easier, but also makes it easy to collaborate with other teammates without compromising the integrity of the original project.

This GitHub test evaluates developers’ knowledge of GitHub and Git commands. Candidates are tested on their ability to efficiently manage code projects with Git and leverage GitHub’s features to collaborate with other developers or teammates.

The applied, situational questions on this test assess core GitHub functionalities, including GitHub basics, collaboration tools, CI/CD and DevOps, as well as project management on the platform. This GitHub skills test will help you identify candidates who have deep knowledge of the Git workflow and know how to apply it.

Candidates who perform well on this test have strong knowledge of Git commands and have practical experience in managing projects using GitHub. The test ensures that they have the necessary GitHub skills to manage large codebases and ensure seamless collaboration on your company’s projects.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
