Python (coding): debugging
This Python debugging test will gauge a candidate's ability to interpret Python code and debug it in line with the requirements given. In 30 minutes, the candidate will need to read through requirements and fix a partially working block of code.
- Python debugging
This test is relevant for
Any developer who is expected to have practical experience using Python. The difficulty level of these questions is geared to mid-level developers.
DescriptionPython is a general-purpose language that has become very popular, in part due to the wide range of use cases, from web development to data science and machine learning. Good Python developers are therefore highly sought after.
The ability to understand and debug code is a critical skill for a successful Python developer. As new features are being developed by more junior developers, bugs may be introduced into the code; therefore, it is important for a developer to be able to identify and fix them. Also given the collaborative nature of software development, it is critical to be able to work with the code of other developers.
We recommend combining this coding test with other programming tests such as Django and SQL, but also Critical Thinking and Numerical Reasoning.
