Sometimes we get nice surprises. Yesterday was one of those days.
A friend on the UVa Board of Visitors sent me a report by CodeSignal.
Founded in 2015, (CodeSignal is) the first company to develop an objective skills-based assessment platform that can be used as a standard for technical hiring.
The report presents that organization’s ranking of the 50 colleges and universities with the highest concentration of students who received a top score under CodeSignal’s General Coding Framework, “the industry-standard assessment taken by more than 50% of graduating computer science students in the United States”.
It is meant for corporate recruiters and hiring managers. Here is the list of the top 30 universities.
I am a UVa grad but, alas, in 1962 I did not major in software engineering.
Congratulations to the Hoos.
