General Development "I've been programming professionally for about 3 years at this point, and I've noticed some interesting patterns in other programmers I've worked with. One of the key differentiators among programmers is motivation. I'm not referring to an individual's passion to simply be successful in their career, but rather the type of work they want to pursue. The thing they want to do with computers every day, the types of problems they are interested in solving."

The point of these types of questions is to see whether an applicant can think of an efficient solution to a problem using a language he/she is most familiar with. I could've asked him to write a code for something more serious, but really if one couldn't come up with a simple solution to a simple problem, I doubt he/she could tackle more complicated problems. I've seen this pattern repeatedly.
