Overall Satisfaction with CoderPad

As an end user. CoderPad is utilized by interviewers to host technical coding interviews. Generally it works quite well and gives users an environment to code in various languages.
  • Large range of supported languages
  • Code runs quickly
  • Allows for intractability between interviewer and interviewee
  • Occasionally IDE parsing of code will mark correct code incorrect and will update late
  • Listing functions callable by a given object is sometimes slow
  • Could provide a small non-login required demo site for interviewees so they will be more used to the development environment before interviews
  • Live code editing between multiple people
  • Built in drawing tool to give coders a way to plan out code/ideas
  • Ability to provide take-home projects
  • Simplifies interview process and helps field candidates better by seeing how they function in a coding environment
There are some aspects of HackerRank and CodeSignal that I think CoderPad should consider. This is quite subjective, but coding in HackerRank or CodeSignal just feels much better and I have less issues with bracket creation/alignment in languages such as Java/C++. The coding environment in these other products also do an overall better job of parsing and highlighting. CoderPad is more interactive though, and is the product for live interviews

Do you think CoderPad delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with CoderPad's feature set?


Did CoderPad live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of CoderPad go as expected?


Would you buy CoderPad again?


CoderPad is a nicer tool when it comes to hosting coding interviews. However, in many cases just using a voice call with screen sharing is sufficient, and spending $50/month by an individual doesn't seem like a good value. Or instead just using a simple program like Google Docs is enough.
