// 1: how could you rewrite the following to make it shorter?
if (foo) {
} else {
// 2: what is the faulty logic in the following code?
var foo = 'hello';
(function() {
var foo = foo || 'world';
// 3: given the following code, how would you override the value of the bar
// property for the variable foo without affecting the value of the bar
// property for the variable bim? how would you affect the value of the bar
// property for both foo and bim? how would you add a method to foo and bim to
// console.log the value of each object's bar property? how would you tell if
// the object's bar property had been overridden for the particular object?
var Thinger = function() {
return this;
Thinger.prototype = {
bar : 'baz'
var foo = new Thinger(),
bim = new Thinger();
// 4: given the following code, and assuming that each defined object has a
// 'destroy' method, how would you destroy all of the objects contained in the
// myObjects object?
var myObjects = {
thinger : new myApp.Thinger(),
gizmo : new myApp.Gizmo(),
widget : new myApp.Widget()
// 5: given the following array, create an array that contains the contents of
// each array item repeated three times, with a space between each item. so,
// for example, if an array item is 'foo' then the new array should contain an
// array item 'foo foo foo'. (you can assume jQuery, dojo, or underscore is
// available)
var myArray = [ 'foo', 'bar', 'baz' ];
// 6: how could you potentially improve the following code?
$(document).ready(function() {
$('.foo #bar').css('color', 'red');
$('.foo #bar').css('border', '1px solid blue');
$('.foo #bar').text('new text!');
$('.foo #bar').click(function() {
$(this).attr('title', 'new title');
$('.foo #bar').click();
// 7: what issues do you see with the following code? how would you fix it?
(function() {
var foo;
url : 'foo.php',
load : function(resp) {
foo =;
if (foo) {
// run this important code
// 8: how could you rewrite the following code to make it shorter?
(function(d, $){
$(' a').attr('title', 'i am foo');
$(' a').attr('title', 'i am bar');
$('li.baz a').attr('title', 'i am baz');
$('li.bop a').attr('title', 'i am bop');
})(dojo, dojo.query);
// 9: how would you improve the following code?
for (i = 0; i <= 100; i++) {
$('#thinger').append('<p><span class="thinger">i am thinger ' + i + '</span></p>');
$('#gizmo').append('<p><span class="gizmo">i am gizmo ' + i + '</span></p>');
// 10: a user enters their desired tip into a text box; the baseTotal, tax,
// and fee values are provided by the application. what are the potential
// issues with the following function for calculating the total?
function calculateTotal(baseTotal, tip, tax, fee) {
return baseTotal + tip + tax + fee;
// BONUS: what is the faulty logic in the following code? how would you fix it?
var date = new Date(),
day = date.getDate(),
month = date.getMonth(),
dates = [];
for (var i = 0; i <= 5; i++) {
dates.push(month + '/' + (day + i))
