Ed Sullivan's Coding Challenge

I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this one before:

For years, we gave the same programming test to every developer. It was a straightforward test that required no setup or external knowledge from manuals. The candidates were asked to write a program that could print its source to the screen exactly, without performing any file input.

I like that. I think I’ll use that with the next developer I interview.
