We get a lot of spam-bot generated emails and unqualified resumes. In order to help pre-qualify job candidates we have created the following programming exercise as a part of the resume submission process. In this exercise you will create a simple web service that responds to requests from our client application*. The client will ask your service one question at a time, in no particular order, to which your server should respond with an appropriate answer in plain text (not HTML).
Follow these simple instructions to submit your resume:
Create a "web service" that is capable of responding to HTTP GET requests*.
Enter the URL of your service in the following form.
Click "Test" and our client will test your service.
Refine your service and re-run the test until you are satisfied with the results.
When the test passes a "Submit" button will appear below the test results.
Click the "Submit" button to submit your application to Balihoo.
*You may want to use logging on your web server to figure out our request format. Don't use https.
