Skype Makes Coding Interviews Easier With New Real-Time Code Editor

Writing code in online interviews is as tedious as it sounds. While various real-time code editors are available, switching between the interviewer’s call and the code editor is quite irritating.

Skype is probably the most popular video calling platform used by recruiters for their interview process. Microsoft’s popular offering has previewed a new feature that combines the video call and coding part on a single screen. And the best part, there is no software installation required.

You can use the code editor on Skype website through Chrome and Microsoft Edge but it only works if the default language is English.

Regarding the coding part, the editor currently supports seven programming languages including Java, Javascript, C, C++, C#, Python, and Ruby. The editor also supports syntax highlighting for the languages which help in pointing out syntax-related mistakes easily.

If you have something to add, drop your thoughts and feedback.
