Demo of our photo-to-shop app, Madora

Why it was OK for us if the candidate does not fully understand the method they propose? Because the optimal solution for some task might be something, which candidate has no experience with yet. Both at interview and at the real job itself.

And as we are talking about unexplored area, it is much more important to be able to quickly learn about the things than to be experienced in some specific area, which might become irrelevant or obsolete.
