About 3 years ago I was interviewing at various companies for web development jobs. I kind of like interviews. You get to work on bite-sized problems that can usually be solved in an hour or less. There is almost always a "right" answer, no matter what the interviewer says. You just have to figure out how they want you to answer (I like standardized tests for the same reason, but that's another, even more boring story).
My intention today is not to write about interviews, though. I want to write about one interview question that I got "right", and how wrong I really was. The questions was:
The Console Test
The UI Layer
The idea of keeping UI and application logic separate is not new (whether you call it MVC, MVVM, or something else). However, the Console Test provides an interesting measure of how independent the application logic really is.
