With new additions and improvements, HackerRank CodePair, (a live online interview platform for hiring companies to conduct coding interviews) now comes with REPL(Read-eval-print-loop) support, an interactive shell that takes user inputs, executes blocks of code and returns the result to the user in realtime. Using REPL(Read-eval-print-loop), candidates can check for correctness before writing code and evaluate piecewise code.
- You, the interviewer, must be logged in to your HackerRank for Work account and have access to CodePair.
- Upon logging into the CodePair session, the interviewer can invite candidates, import a question from the HackerRank library, and also choose to have multiple questions or tabs to use during the interview.
- With REPL, interviewers can now review the candidate's code in real-time, ask questions, and understand the candidate’s approach to problem-solving instantly.
- REPL is enabled for Python and Python 3 and is available under the Console tab. You can directly type code into this tab or copy-paste code from your editor into the console and execute it in realtime.
