Thanks for the post, Raul. I followed your exercises and also stack at the last one, whilst arriving at the same conclusion as you are. I have around five years of experience writing code in production and I haven't encountered such task, I immediately thought to myself that the first thing I would've done in real environment as probably asking backend team to implement sort, there's never a reason to burden client with sorting data. But anyways, I kept wondering what sort of position you've applied to, i.e. junior, middle, senior? All other tasks seem much much more easier than a final one, what would solving that one gave to you?

Hey.

I kept wondering what sort of position you've applied to, i.e. junior, middle, senior?

Actually they didn't specified a level. They just said: "Front-end developer" but by the salary I could imagine it was something from medior to senior.

All other tasks seem much much more easier than a final one, what would solving that one gave to you?

Indeed, have no idea. I felt they were following some sort of "interviewing people platform" and getting the steps from there.
