Can you convert a Value Object (i.e. JSON) to YAML?
My expectation is that a mid-senior level developer should be able to accomplish this task in under 4 hours:
- write a basic solution in 30-60 minutes
- debug / test / fine-tune for another 60-90 minutes
- document, package, and publish within the remaining time
I could see it reasonable even if a developer takes 2 days to solve this for the first time - possibly because they needed to take a break but didn't, such as feeling pressure and getting brain freeze, taking an initial wrong approach, over-thinking the problem, and then just keeping beating the dead horse, etc - especially if they've never had to work independently before.
