The Code Sample - Java - Date/Time 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 Java. 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. It is for this reason that we provide this environment and encourage you to use it, free of charge.
