    Companies that ask for examples of talks you have given and code you have developed in your free time.

    Quite a few people who talk at conferences do so to stroke their ego and are not the sort of people you want working for you. I know because I have worked with some of them.

    I write code to pay for things I really want to do.

      Agreed, but that works both ways. I would expect someone interviewing me for my kind of work to treat the meeting with a degree of respect.
      I was interviewed by a guy who removed his shoes and put his feet on the desk.

        And they want to hire people who care about their work. So it's probably a useful question both ways as it indicates you are not a good fit for each other. But they might just be trying to find stuff you've done you're allowed to show them since all your paid work is probably confidential. They can see you in action without giving you stupid test a=or taking up your time.
