I was interviewing a candidate for a senior UI dev position and I began to ask him stuff about closures, contexts, design patterns and others.

At some point, after failing to respond to most of the questions, the candidate looked at me and said something like: ‘I am amazed. You didn’t have a lot of toys when you were a kid. The PC was your only toy when you were a kid, right??’.

I looked at my junior colleague that was shadowing the interview and we couldn’t believe what the guy was asking. He was extremely serious and he was looking for a way to find an explanation for his failure.

    @adamhongmy yup, but that was not his intention. He was serious about it rather than trying to make jokes.

    @TMBSTruth JS closures.

    Quote: A closure is a function having access to the parent scope, even after the parent function has closed.
