Python is an interpreted, high-level, and general-purpose programming language. The idea behind Python's design emphasizes code readability with its significant use of whitespaces. Its language constructs and object-oriented approach aim to help programmers write clear, logical code for small and large-scale projects.
The full potential of this programming language cannot be explored in a single page code, which is the format of our current programming questions. The project question type provides a file-and-folder structure that enables the testing of Python concepts at various levels.
These questions are automatically evaluated by using the nose framework.
Use cases of Python project questions
Test hands-on programming skills
These types of questions allow you to test a candidate’s hands-on programming skill against testing only the algorithmic coding knowledge. You can also assess how familiar candidates are with the concepts of various data types such as lists and dictionaries. It also allows you to test a candidate based on the concepts of classes and multiple inheritance.
Assess the concepts of modules and packages
These types of questions assess the candidates based on the concept of reducing the size of code by using modules and packages. This skill allows the candidates to reduce the time complexity of code.
Testing the knowledge of Python frameworks
This type of question allows you to assess candidates based on the knowledge of Python frameworks. The commonly used frameworks are Django, Flask, and CherryPy. These frameworks provide a basic and well-defined structure of a project that facilitates developers to figure out the core logic of the application.
