Candidates' guide: getting started on Type12Last Updated: September 10, 2018
In short: Type12 is a platform for doing technical interviews that simulate the production environment of any company. If you've ever had a technical interview on a Google doc file, then Type12 should be a great relief for you. Type12 acts a fully configured environment where the company that is going to interview you has already set up a bunch of things.
Ideally, your interview will not be about programming riddles and brain teaser, will be much more practical and about solving real problems that you'll be likely to encounter in your day-to-day job. Chances are that your upcoming interview will be probably based both on specific programming languages and exact pieces of technologies (ie. Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Redis or Amazon S3).
During your interview you'll write code on the main area, you may open, create and delete files in the left panel, you can use the terminal below to run and debug your software.
Just to be clear: you don't need to install anything on your local machine.
Preparing before interviews
At the established time, you will click on the link that has been provided you and you will start your interview once the interviewer connects in.
Since you will work from your browser in a real remote environment, you won't need to install anything on your local machine.
We heavily recommend you start by creating a new account and playing around with the online IDE.
Programming Languages, Frameworks and others
Chances are that you already know what is the language/framework that you will be tested on during the interview.
