Use of Kotlin (coding): entry-level algorithms test

This Kotlin coding test evaluates a candidate's fundamental programming abilities by requiring them to program a simple algorithm.

Kotlin is a programming language that can work seamlessly with Java, and it's cross-platform. Ever since 2019, Kotlin has become the preferred language for Android app developers, which makes proficient Kotlin developers highly sought after.

Junior programmers need to have a solid foundation in Kotlin programming to be able to start off on the right foot and prepare themselves for future professional growth. This Kotlin test is designed to evaluate candidates' entry-level algorithmic skills, and they are given a time limit of 10 minutes to complete the task. The code is tested against a set of test cases, with some of them being made available to the candidate to ensure they are making progress.

Using this test as an initial screening tool is an excellent way to assess essential skills in candidates. To obtain a more comprehensive evaluation of candidates, we recommend combining coding tests with at least one of our cognitive ability tests that measure numerical or analytical skills.

Entry-level algorithm

Entry-level algorithm skills covered in Kotlin coding typically include topics such as sorting algorithms (e.g. bubble sort, insertion sort), searching algorithms (e.g. linear search, binary search), and basic data structures (e.g. arrays, linked lists). These skills are important because they form the foundation of problem-solving in computer science. Understanding algorithms allows programmers to efficiently solve problems, optimize code, and improve the performance of their applications. Mastering entry-level algorithms in Kotlin equips developers with the necessary tools to tackle more complex problems and build robust software solutions.
