What interview techniques should you use to hire the best Perl developer?
Once you have a list of potential candidates, it is now time to narrow down your choice, to help you get to this point in the hiring process, it is highly recommended to use interview techniques. Further interviews and tests are encouraged to ensure that you are hiring the right Perl developer for your development project. Seeing a long list of technical skills on a CV will not suffice as there are other factors that make a good and qualified member of your in-house development team.
As your potential Perl developer will be working far away from your in-house team, it is integral that communication won’t be an issue. During the interview via video call, ask the candidate about their past experiences on development projects, how did they solve problems that they have encountered? How was the outcome of the project? Were their clients or previous employers satisfied with the work they produced? As you interact, take note of how well you can converse with them and if you can see yourself working together. From the video interview, you can get a good grasp of what type of worker and overall person the candidate is. Finding a Perl developer that is able to connect with you and your team is highly important.
After the video interview, a technical skills test will be conducted to examine how proficient the candidates are with the essential programming technologies required for your development project. Here are some suggested questions that could be asked during the technical skills test:
Q: To reduce or avoid errors how do you show warning options in Perl?
The -w Command-line option:
Will present the list if warning messages regarding the code.
Forces the user to declare all variables before they can be used using the my() function.
Using the built-in debugger:
Allows the user to scroll through the entire program line by line.
Q: In Perl, what feature provides code reusability? Give an example of the feature.
A: The inheritance feature of Perl provides code reusability. In this feature, the child class can use the methods and property of the parent class.
@ISA = (Parent);
Q: Can a binary extension be loaded dynamically?
A: A binary extension can be loaded dynamically if the system that you possess supports that. If it doesn’t, you can find a way through statically compiling the extension.
