Coding Interview /def/
Typically, a job interview technique to assess potential employees where the main focus is on solving several algorithmic problems in a short time, while the quality of the solution, communication, and other candidate's skills are ignored.

  1. Coding Interview does not represent real-life project scenarios. 
  2. Coding Interview does not measure problem-solving capabilities or engineering capacity. 
  3. Coding Interview simulates highly unrealistic and unnecessary stress. 
  4. Coding Interview does not address communication, commitment and humility. 
  5. Coding Interview is superficially inefficient and unreliable. 

Nota bene:
An interview for a software engineer may contain coding bits as a means of communication, like sketching on a blackboard.
