We started sending out some very simple coding challenges for people to do when they apply, just to give us a first gut-check on whether we should have a conversation. They’re super simple, like
write a for loop kinda simple.
They send us back their answers in an email, so a dev still has to run them, change the inputs for testing, etc. So I thought, “since these are trivial, and effectively pass/fail, couldn’t this be automated?”
Obviously, the first step is to find a domain name, and thus: maybe.codes was born.
Well, kinda born. It’s just a landing page. I’m not sure it’ll ever be real — there’s a lot of very slick code exercise/interview sites out there. They all do a lot more than this, and aren’t cheap, but I haven’t done the work to know if there’s a niche here.
Either way, ‘twas fun to make the landing page, and I like the domain a lot.
