(Formerly known as ‘SudoRank’ questions)
DevOps questions are those that help to assess the Linux skills of a candidate. When a candidate takes a test comprising of DevOps questions, we set up their own sandbox Linux virtual machine to log in remotely. You can ask them to perform whatever tasks you like: install a package, create a file with certain contents, or perform an action with a specific tool like grep.
You can write a script to score the performance of candidates or rely on the session playback of the session to grade the test subjectively. The video playback feature allows you to view if a candidate checked a manpage, or knew how a tool worked from memory.
When a candidate is viewing a DevOps question, the problem statement is displayed alongside the login credentials and an SSH command for logging into the Linux virtual machine. The in-browser code editor does not exist for DevOps questions, which differs from other question types where the candidate views the problem statement and enters their solution on the same page.
