I did a coding challenge for an app where they also wanted a 'design'. I reckoned that I'm not a designer nor am I applying for a design position so I might as well go hard brutalist.
Of course the team evaluating it docked me points for it not being a 'professional' looking design.
They also critiqued my architecture with references to webpages which on closer reading said that my approach is perfectly fine until you're faced with larger scale issues. (I was doing the challenge in a language I'm hot fluent in and told them that I would be proficient in a couple of weeks.)
We’re a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
