There are no boasting, just a success factor. To complete Toptal tests, already several time in a row with compulsory months of breaks one has to be a genius or a generalist.
They are requiring you to comply with Codility (Hackerrank before) standards, but obscruing them on the runtime. Presented with the only task, reading the LCD web page developer is doomed to fail, because time allocated is for 3 tasks in advance, rather than for each separately like in all Codility (lesson) test cases and linked Toptal demo test case.
To be compliant wit their strategies, exact tests screenshots aren’t unveiled, but the general sense is ubiquitous. Don’t attend their trial-and error events, because for example in my case I missed gitflow feature branch, then commited to develop and revert was fussy, as solution.php had been already renamed to solution1.php; MS Visual Studio Code gitflow didn’t find correctly conflicting files and ultimately reverting initial task 2 commit was a failure ultimately, because task 2 (solution2.php) file was reamining already in the tree.
What a struggle, what a fight. Imagine you are sitting in your orchard (outdated by that time yards) and non Wifi is given, 4g is lagging; but the only drawback is it’s a public library WPA secured Wifi and these war games are about competing war machinery with lieutenants; anythinng, but a civil job applying individual, i. e. former student; is it time to virtually seek for a student status to be not combated by walking by robots? The case seems to be so.
