The Code Sample - Visual Basic - File Operations test aims at displaying the programmer's ability to create a short code snippet, displaying their knowledge of basic syntax. The final sample will provide an idea of the programmer's skill level in programming in VB.NET. Because gauging coding skills is a highly subjective endeavor, we leave it to you to determine the level of coding effectiveness represented by the candidate's sample. We do believe though, that providing a controlled, immediate coding environment helps to assess the skills of the programmer, in context. Code Samples are also available for ASP, Java and C#.
