What is deep code analysis? How does it help in making talent decisions?
A Deep Code Analysis is an in-depth evaluation of a candidate’s coding skills. This engine at DoSelect analyses the code for detecting patterns and characteristics pertaining to how ‘maintainable’ the code is. It's helping the decision-makers to get a deeper insight into the developer's thought process around problem-solving skills and knowledge and applicability of different programming paradigms. With such measurability, insight, and overview of the competency, recruiters today are able to make better hiring decisions that ultimately drive a positive impact on the business.
How does it work?
There are three parameters to evaluate candidates on the deep code analysis:
- Coding approach: Analysis of complex control flow structures used in the code, which affects code’s readability and susceptibility to errors
- Code Modularity: Analysis of modular design patterns used in the code, like high-order abstractions and conciseness.
- Code Extensibility: Analysis of how easy it is to add new functionality to the code without requiring major changes.
Where is it applicable?
DCA is applicable in the coding problem-type only and is currently available for programming languages like Python2, Python3, Java7, Java8, and C.
