Summary: In this article, you will learn how to leverage Terminal during your live interviews with candidates.
Take your online coding interview to the next level with Terminal connected to the CodeSignal IDE. With this powerful tool, you can assess advanced software development skills and give you and your candidate greater control over the environment, run commands, and management of your data files. The terminal session will be recorded along with the rest of the candidate's coding session, allowing team members to review the session later.
During your live interview session, search for any free coding task in our library. Next to the RESULTS tab, there will be a TERMINAL tab.
Here, Terminal will behave just as any terminal on a standard Linux machine. Actions include but are not limited to:
- Run a command-line shell (REPL)
- Install software
- Run code and debuggers
- Start services
- Write to files
With Terminal, you and your candidate can enjoy full access to a persistent Ubuntu environment configured per language and preloaded with many standard libraries and packages.
Optional: You can customize the IDE to code in a more comfortable environment. In the bottom left corner of the IDE click on settings icon to change the location of TERMINAL from vertical to horizontal.
