There is demo of Slot Machine minigame I’ve done several months ago for Great Empire social game.


Several weeks ago I implemented jQuery plugin to visualize statistics. There are horizontal bar, vertical bar and vertical bar as column of the grid. I didn’t find open source solution that comply with all features the project needed. So, I implemented my own one.

It supports:

  • tooltips
  • ‘on click’ events
  • colors customization



Yesterday, I interviewed AS3 coder position candidate. The most of times, I’m taking my part on job interview as candidate, but not yesterday.
This guy looks ok as coder. He’s provided nice sources and done with test task in half of day. But I want to talk about other thing.

Another opinion at line of hiring was about more strict test task, real one task. It would take much more time to do such real implementation. So, this test task would not look like test one. Keep in mind, the test task is just to check the skills of a candidate. On the other hand, the candidate may feel hurt by interviewer if asked for too complicated unpaid work. The company may looks like empire of evil in the eyes of stranger. Nobody wants to work in bad team or work in bad team for less money.

So, let’s being kind company with smiles that looks amazing in people eyes.
