Python and java tests in college? Both on paper, so you can only write your code once, using a pen, and you can't debug it or modify it. Awesome right... Smh

    To be fair: Google puts you in front of a white board and makes you write stuff out expecting it to run as well in their interviews.

    Did the same at uni. Remember to write modular code and one function per paper. Then you can easily trash part of your code.

    Will be hell for the guy reading it though ;-)

    Edit: and it's always fun using a paper to write a three line function. Kill all the threes!

    @klemenkeko not when it's 1h30min per test and you have to code 4 fully functioning programs, you vaguely have any idea about the outcome and you get lost. Which is why we should be thankful for any IDE that makes it easier
