How our HTML5 interview questions work

If you wanted to hire a baker, you might want them to bake a loaf of bread and see how it turned out right? Developer recruitment should be no different. At DevSkiller we believe the best way to hire an HTML developer is to test your candidates with projects similar to those they will encounter in their actual work. That’s where the RealLifeTesting methodology comes in.

RealLifeTesting works by simulating a developer’s real work environment and then asks candidates to answer questions and solve problems based on the kind of challenges they would face in the real world. Gone are the days of reciting old code or solving academic algorithmic puzzles. RealLifeTesting provides recruiters with rounded, objective insight into a candidate’s skills, all during initial screening. Get an in-depth view of your candidates’ critical thinking, coding skills, and time-management with our range of HTML5 interview questions.

What to look for in an HTML5 developer

HTML5 is the fifth and most up to date version of HTML. Along with CSS and JavaScript, HTML is one of the stalwart programming languages making up the fundamentals of front-end development. While most developers usually specialize in another language as well, HTML is still so important to modern software development that all front end developers are expected to be able use it effectively. While HTML is simple to get started with, knowledge of its advanced applications requires a more in-depth understanding. Our HTML5 interview questions will help you in your search, but it is good to know which skills to look out for in your new developer.

Firstly, your HTML5 developer will want to have experience with HTML5. This should go without saying, but there are different versions of HTML and your developer candidate will be expected to know the differences between them.

Next, knowledge of front-end frameworks used to quicken up the design of web pages will be required. The most popular frameworks used by HTML5 are Skeleton, HTML KickStart, Montage, SproutCore, and Zebra.

It will also be helpful if your developer knows about HTML5 templates used for creating websites with cross-browser capability, like Boilerplate.

Other skills to look for in a front-end developer are knowledge of User Perspective (UX), Responsive Web Design (RWD), and an understanding of a11y, relating to the accessibility of websites for people with disabilities.

Why not customize your HTML5 interview questions?

We design our tests and our HTML5 interview questions to be as automated as possible, but we also want recruiters to have as much control over the recruitment process as possible. This is why we give you the option of creating your own customized tests.

The DevSkiller task wizard comes packed with ready-made developer tests, but you can build custom tests using your own codebase. This allows you to select the programming languages you wish to assess, the specific skills, and the individual technologies you want to test.

Difficulty level, test duration, and time allowed for each question are all options that can be left up to you.

Customizing our HTML5 interview questions is just another way to quicken up your entire developer screening process.

It is understandable to be interested in our HTML5 interview questions, but still not be 100% convinced. It is a big step to invest your company’s money and you want to make the right decision.  So why not listen to what some our past customers have to say:

“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.”

Richard Williams – VP of engineering at Plutora

“Thanks to automating the screening stage, we were able to reduce the interview rate by 50%. At the same time, the quality of candidates who make it to the interview stage is now much greater. DevSkiller adds an extra layer of quality to our technical hiring process”

Michael Gerwig – Engineering manager at Ada Health

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to set up DevSkiller?

Our HTML5 interview questions are designed to quicken up your whole recruitment process, so of course, our testing platform is quick and simple to set up. An HTML5 online test can be ready to send out in as little as five minutes. Our wide selection of junior, middle, and senior-level HTML5 online tests means that you can start testing your candidates as soon as you have set up your account.

What do candidates think of DevSkiller tests?

Our testing method is popular with developers because they feel they finally have a chance to demonstrate their development skills in a fair setting. Previously the only way of testing developer candidates was with simple algorithmic tests and by expecting them to remember coding patterns they hadn’t used in years. Thanks to DevSkiller HTML5 interview questions, developers can now demonstrate their actual HTML experience right from the start.

Developers like that our HTML5 interview questions reflect the development work they do on a daily basis. They also like the fact that DevSkiller tests use normal coding tools and conventions like unit testing, and allow them to clone their projects to GIT from their personal IDE.

If a developer is unsure at first, we usually find this is because they are suspicious of academic algorithmic tests that don’t test the actual skills that developers use day to day, and they assume our tests will be the same. Once they realize the difference, they relish having the opportunity to show what they can do.

How do you prevent plagiarism in your HTML5 interview questions?

Our goal is that our testing method is 100% trustworthy, so we take the threat of plagiarism seriously. During our HTML5 interview questions, we implement a number of robust anti-plagiarism tools to ensure all test results are accurate. Screen recording is used to check if the candidate is looking at a different screen when undertaking a test and a range of social listening tools are also implemented. Our plagiarism detector can also check any code the candidate has entered and cross-reference this with all of the answers previously entered in our database to see if there is a match. If there is, the duplicate answer will flag up in our system and will mean the candidate has copied their answer from a previous test.
