How DevSkiller C and C++ tests online work
What makes DevSkiller C and C++ tests unique is that they are powered by RealLifeTesting™, a method of testing specially designed to accurately assess a C and C++ developer’s skills, while still in the screening phase.
The RealLifeTesting™ methodology aims to recreate the kinds of tasks C and C++ developers face in their work every day, allowing you to measure their coding skills, their time-management, and their critical thinking skills. Tests are then automatically assessed and a concise report generated, saving time and effort during the screening process.
Key features of our C and C++ tests
- Assess C and C++ coding ability
- Save time and money with remote C and C++ testing
- The RealLifeTesting™ methodology allows candidates to use their own IDE, clone to GIT, run unit tests, and research using Stack Overflow/Github/Google.
- Anti-plagiarism tools ensure accurate results
- Observe tests in real-time
- Comprehensible automated results
- C and C++ tests available to assess any level

What to look for in C and C++ developer
C++ is a multi-paradigm language that excels in procedural and object-oriented programming, as well as being a practical choice for functional programming.
C and C++ are not the same, but a C++ developer will need to have many of the same attributes as a C developer. The first attribute is possessing an understanding of pointer arithmetic and what constitutes undefined behavior. Your developer should also be comfortable with using debugging tools such as Address/Memory/UndefinedBehavior Sanitizer, Valgrind, debuggers (e.g. GDB), and static code analysis tools. What sets the C++ developer apart from a C developer is, in addition they also need to be able to understand Boost and Qt libraries sufficiently enough to be able to use them.
To make sure you have the right candidate for your business, you will also want your CPP developer to be experienced in commercial and open-source projects.

Lingonberry is a Talent Acquisition company. Before they enlisted DevSkiller’s help, their recruitment process was inefficient and time-consuming. Their recruiters found it difficult to filter applicants during the screening process. Half of the candidates Lingonberry assessed, were invited back for a technical interview and 15 candidates had to be interviewed in order to make just two hires. Also, recruiting for any higher positions was very difficult, as the Lingonberry recruiters were required to be competent at that level, in order to accurately assess which candidates possessed the skill-level required.
By introducing DevSkiller testing Lingonberry was able to eliminate 50% of their candidates before the interview stage, saving time and money during the recruitment process. Lingonberry can also now accurately recruit senior positions in which they have limited in-house expertise and still ensure they select the right applicant for the role.
Jonatan Rugarn – CEO, Founder, Recruiter at Lingonberry Talent Acquisition, Engineering Manager at Avinode Group
“The duration of the recruitment process has not changed, but we spend less time and effort per candidate. We also don’t waste time on the wrong candidates.”
Micha Gerwig – Engineering manager at Ada Health
“DevSkiller helped us to save precious on-site time for applicants that are already likely to be a fit. We’re saving 3 hours per candidate – that was the time we spent with applicants on a technical task before.”
Magdalena Rogóż – Deputy Marketing Manager at Kodilla
“Using DevSkiller to grade tests is 2 times more cost-efficient while giving our students a much better test and preparing them for future recruitment tests.”
Frequently asked questions
How long does it take to set up DevSkiller?
DevSkiller C and C++ tests take no time at all to set up. You can be testing applicants within 5 minutes. Devskiller comes ready with an extensive library of C and C++ tests, meaning the hard work is already done for you.
How do candidates take a C and C++ test?
Applicants are sent a test invite which they can access remotely and begin their test wherever and whenever is suitable to them. They can use their preferred IDE and then clone the project to GIT, or they can opt to use our state of the art in-browser IDE. During the test, candidates can even run unit tests to ensure their solutions are working the way they’re supposed to. Automatic reports that are easy to understand, even for non-technical minds, are then sent to the recruiter with the results.
How are C and C++ tests online evaluated?
Once the candidate completes their test or the time elapses, the DevSkiller platform begins automatically evaluating the results. Candidates are assessed on the quality of the coding and if there are any errors in the code, whether or not the solutions they came up with would run (an essential factor in all software development) and how their code stands up in edge cases. Stringent anti-plagiarism tools ensure the validity of test results.
Do I need to be a programmer to use DevSkiller?
Devskiller is as simple and as automated as possible, to allow non-technical recruiters to be able to get the most out of it. Ready-to-use tests have been prepared by our IT experts aimed at being user-friendly to those not as technical, while still allowing you to accurately assess the skills of developers.
