Great article over at Global Nerdy about a programmer hiring test that is over 20 years old called “Fizz Buzz”.  A shocking 60% of the people that he interviewed FAILED this fairly simple test.  As someone who hasn’t touched a programming language since C+ 20 odd years ago, or BASIC before that, even I was able to come up with a solution (no guarantees that it would have worked but I had the basic structure laid out like Joey’s solution) I can’t believe that this many people failed this test.  He has some great conclusions (go read them) and I would have to agree, considering I have seen a lot of what he has suggested over the years.
