About the Typescript (coding): debugging test
The ability to understand and debug code is a critical skill for successful TypeScript developers with advanced coding knowledge. As new features are being developed, bugs may be introduced into the code and disrupt the regular function of your software. It is, therefore, important for a developer to be able to identify bugs in the code based on a set of requirements and fix them. Given the collaborative nature of software development, it is also critical to be able to work with and correct the code of other developers.
This test provides candidates with a small script that contains one or more bugs. The description clarifies the objective of the code and provides examples to illustrate how it should function. Candidates must then identify the bugs and fix them.
Candidates can run their code to see if certain pre-defined inputs return the expected result. Once candidates submit their code, the test is scored automatically using a wider set of test cases, which include more challenging corner cases. You can then inspect the code of candidates from your dashboard and play it back to see their thought process and how they came to their solution.
