Well the IRC question & answer sessoin is over now.
I missed it “live” due to being asleep, but reading it afterwards was enlightening.
I hesitate to criticise the execution, being a non-contributor…. But perhaps next year to avoid people with bogus IRC settings, or the pasting truncation we might have a trial session in advance?
We could have test questions such as:
- What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
- What’s your favorite colour?
- Tell me about your childhood .. childhood .. childhood
- Complete the following limerick ;)
The most obvious problem was there were a few replies that were truncated – they were restored afterwards. It’s a shame something as simple as a “BEGIN” + “END” to each response would have helped – and next time it’s something we’ll know.
Thanks all round to the organizers, the people submitting the questions, and of course the candidates themselves.
