I did a Plum.io test
2 October 2016

An ex-classmate asked me today to do a Plum.io. I was expecting a coding/algo/logic test. But it was mostly some soft skills questions with a small part of logic. My results are available here.

I remember writting a blog in French few years ago in high school. I’m not really sure what it was about, certainly about technology and me being intrigued about internet. For some reasons, I stopped writting, but always wanted to get back at it

So Why?
