Exercises in Xojo

  1. 3 weeks ago

    Hi,

    I am currently looking to someone to help me developing a project using Xojo and I found someone that is interested in the job but never did any Xojo except when he applied for the job and that I told him it was in Xojo.

    So the question is what kind of test can I give him to test his skills ? Maybe create a scenario that includes creating class/subclass, a form with database insert?

    If you have any ideas, I would be glad to hear them !

    Thank you

    if someone is new to xojo i think he need some month to get into. xojo is easy and also it have specials.
    i would give him a task that is your project in the abstract.
    if you work together something that you can integrate into your work.
    and you need to save your project i a format that you can compare the differences to migrate.
    you can start with a mind map. yed-live/

    @Jean-YvesPochez nice !
    xojo web app ???

    I don't think so.
    it is just a great tool for making diagrams. there is also a download as desktop solution.

    What are his skills? I think that a developer needs to learn Xojo. If you aren't willing to pay for that look elsewhere.

    I had maybe more in mind to give him a little challenge instead of trying to get him in the project, it will take some times for him to understand the project and the current structure of it I think

    He's new in IT development and started a few month back but he's willing to learn.

    Problem solving is the critical factor. Can he think in algorithms? Take a very small portion of your app and let him try to make that.

    Yeah I can try to set up something for him to solve, problem solving is indeed a critical factor
