Just wondering what other people think about questions like:
"Can you send me samples of your code?"
Without a job description (even a title would suffice!), I'm not sure what they're after. Are they just looking at programming style? I have worked on databases that were a complete disaster - the company didn't have a developer that even understood the significance of the Normal forms, so there was code in there that did things like creating normalized views of the unnormalized tables... Doesn't really make sense out of context, though.
How do other people respond to questions like this? If I had at least a job description to go on, or a database to write against (even if it's a "public" one available on the internet), it would be one thing, but I haven't a clue what they're even looking for. Maybe the recruiter is clueless, I don't know.
Any thoughts on how to respond to a request like that?
If it matters, I'm more a developer than a DBA type...
