Discussion on: Applying To Facebook

This is exactly why we focus our dev interview around a creative coding challenge that forces the candidate to learn a new concept and apply it with a ton of wiggle room around how they want to approach the task. We just give some general goals to accomplish in the project, then we discuss how they solved the problem without nitpicking the tools outside what we asked them to demonstrate.

We also give them an appropriate window of time on their own to research the new concepts so that it's not an on-the-spot stressful thing.

BINGO!

Pretty soon, I'm going to do an article on how I want to do interviews - and it's basically what you're describing here.
