  • I don't think this is a big deal. The guy posted his own attempt at an answer, too. If I couldn't consult with colleages (or the CookBook), I'd have a much harder time at work. In interviews, I actually ask prospective employees what sites they like to use as resources. If the goal is to see how people think, don't give them a take home test.

      Indeed, this is not "cheating" even if he intended to use the posted solutions to apply for the job. If you don't know how to come up with the best solution yourself, from an employer's standpoint, knowing where to get it is 99.44% as good. Nobody would object to someone Googling to see if there was a script out there to solve the problem. Well, thanks to that thread, Googling will now find many solutions.
