Microsoft Phone Interview

26 October ’12

I have been interviewed by Microsoft on last Wednesday and here is their somewhat interesting questions:

  1. Why do you want to join Microsoft?
  2. Why do you find programming fun?
  3. How and why did you start to programming?
  4. What are the properties of the good code?
  5. How would you test a keyboard? (users seem to be between 5-10 years old)
  6. How would you predict outside temperature as correctly as possible while sitting inside? (No tools: temperature sensor, web, etc.)
  7. Enumerate three programming languages which you like most, with reasons!
  8. Compare clouds; Azure, AWS, AppEngine except price, supported stacks and openness. (Bonus: this is mine)
