The 2022 CoderPad Year in Review


As 2022 comes to a close, we’re reflecting on the feature updates and major releases that have helped our users improve their interview process.

Here at CoderPad, we were busy! 2022 saw the release of major features (have you seen our multi-file environments yet?) and product updates. 

Here are the top 10 features we were most excited about this year:

1. Multi-file environments

In CoderPad’s new multi-file environments, users now have the ability to spin up full applications and get more creative with interview questions.

2. New language & framework support

2022 saw the release of new language and framework supports. Now in every CoderPad account, users will find access to:

  • HTML/CSS/JS (improved),
  • React
  • Angular
  • Vue
  • Svelte
  • Solidity

3. Multiple custom files

This past year also meant the addition of multiple custom files here at CoderPad. We’ve added the ability to attach multiple custom files to a question (instead of just one), allowing you to expand the depth of your questions.  

4. Duplicate pads

We want our users to have as seamless an in-product experience as possible. That’s why we made it easy to duplicate code from one pad to create another.  With Duplicate Pads, you can:

  • Create a new pad for a follow-up interview using the code from the initial pad (while keeping separate notes)
  • Rerun a candidate’s code after the interview
  • Run test cases against a candidate’s code after the interview

5. Google Chrome Extension

You asked, we answered with our Google Chrome extension! Now, users have the ability to create and link pads directly in Google Calendar events or through the browser extension, for easier interview scheduling.

6. Dashboard bulk actions

Users can clean up their dashboard with dashboard bulk actions. Users can now select multiple pads, making it easy to bulk end or delete pads.

7. Access permissions

With this enterprise-only feature, admins can toggle access for team members. Choose which members are able to create and edit questions within your organization’s question bank.

8. Highlighted user flags

Follow along in your interviews! CoderPad’s highlighted user flags help interviewers spot where and when their candidates are coding.

9. Tabbed interview pad

With our tabbed interview pad, CoderPad users can keep all interview elements organized and easily accessible. 

10. Enhanced candidate review

Our Multi-track playback ensures a more enhanced candidate review. With this playbook, CoderPad users can:

  • Focus on the candidate’s edits in the code
  • Check visual cues to skip to the moments when code was run
  • See which files were edited
  • See when multiple languages were used in an interview and when the language was switched
