What interview techniques should you use to hire the best C# developer?
To hire the best C# developer for your development project, it is highly encouraged to conduct further assessments to make sure that the candidate is best suited for the job. Looking at a candidate’s CV would not suffice as there are other factors to consider when taking on a new member to be part of your already established in-house team.
It is advised to conduct both an interview through an online video conference as well as a technical test, to thoroughly examine the candidate’s suitability for the job. In the online interview, you may ask the candidate about his or her previous projects, how they resolved problems during the development process, and how successful was the project. Whilst interacting with them, you can also assess how well they communicate and interact. This is highly important as you must form a relationship while working on the IT development project together. Being able to communicate with ease is highly essential. Here are some recommended interview techniques and questions that employers can ask or apply to determine the best C# developer.
Another assessment that should take place is the technical test, to know whether the candidate is proficient in the technologies required for your business’ development project. Here are a few sample questions that could be asked during a technical test for a C# developer:
Q: What are the three ways to pass parameters to a method in C#?
- Value Parameters: To pass a parameter to a method with value, a new storage location is formed for the value parameter. The argument will not be affected when changes occur in a value parameter.
- Reference Parameters: To pass a parameter to a method with reference is achieved using the ref keyword. The method accesses the memory location of the argument and passes it as a parameter. The argument is affected when the parameter changes.
- Output Parameters: The out keyword lets a method to return two values from a function. Like passing a reference parameter, where the method accesses the memory location of the argument which then passes a parameter. However, the data is transferred out of the method.
Q: Define what is Operator Overloading and how it works?
A: Most of the built-in operators available in C# can be overloaded or redefined using the operator keyword. Here is a sample code below depicting the syntax used to implement the addition operator (+) for a user-defined class.
public static Rectangle operator+ (Rectangle b, Rectangle c)
Rectangle rectangle = new Rectangle();
rectangle.length = b.length + c.length;
rectangle.breadth = b.breadth + c.breadth;
rectangle.height = b.height + c.height;
Q: Distinguish the difference between dynamic type variables and object type variables in C#?
Dynamic type variables handle type checking at run time
Object type variables handle type checking during compile time.
