re: Never been asked this, seems ridiculous. Maybe my strength is that my weakness is not a weakness
 

Oh it is ridiculous. But in my 10 years as a developer, I have been asked it in nearly every single interview. I don’t know if I would phrase it the way you suggest, as everyone has some kind of weakness. It just may not be relevant to the job. Which is why I think this shouldn’t be asked. I think the intent is mostly to see how you think and respond to these kinds of questions. And as long as you don’t tank it, you’re probably fine.
