JS Dev Interviewee quiz
View jsquiz.md

JS Dev quiz.

Most of these questions have several possible answers and no real wrong answer. The aim of the quiz is to gauge your level of experience with software development in general but also your experience working directly in Javascript, so add as much detail as possible, explain how you arrived at your answer, etc.

Some of the questions are quite difficult or confusing, so don't worry too much if you're not sure about the answers; a couple of them are deliberately designed to be hard to solve!

General questions

  1. Describe the stack for a recent project that you found interesting.
