During my last job search, one of the take home assignments from a company was to write a REST API that returns "Hello World!". That was literally all the instruction that was given. When pressed for more details, I was told to think about a design which would be easy to expand upon in the future and other cliche directives. I still have no idea what exactly they were looking for, it seems like a sarcastic comment or a cruel joke that went way too far.

I like when companies have challenges where you have to hack a web-app or send your résumé via an API endpoint in a specific format.

I code every single day. For me every new line of code is a invention and it gives me a sense of pride (also I dance when my code works 👷).

It's a good thing my code doesn't work often because I'm a bad dancer
