🤔 I can't tell if you're kidding, but...

the point is that it's not binary, even though some people treat it that way. If you read what the hiring managers quoted in the article say about whiteboarding, you'll see that it's really nuanced.

 

I'm mostly kidding, but if I had to make a gun-to-the-head choice, it's be no. It's a reply because the question is binary.

Whiteboard interviews obviously is a term that has grown to not just include actual whiteboards and there's room in the world for a lot of different techniques - you can learn a lot from asking people how to solve something in a practical sense :)
