I agree with the uselessness of code tests.
I wrote up an article that suggested you take the following snippet to all tech interviews:

HTML
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <title></title>
    </head>
    <body>

    </body>
</html>


Then, when they interviewer gives you the esoteric code item that you are supposed to know, pull this sheet of paper out and ask...

Question the questioner
Which warning(s) and/or error(s) (if any) will the W3C Validator display for this HTML sample?


The W3C Markup Validation Service[^]

Drop the code snippet in and see the answers.

When the interviewer says it's ridiculous, just say, "So I'm hired then, right?" Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
