I've recently had the opportunity to meet a CF developer, with the 
intent of evaluating his skills in relation to my company's goals. 
Before we met, I asked if he would be willing to bring some code that 
he had written so that I could take a look at it, to benchmark his 
skill level.

His response was to immediately go cold, and decline the interview. 
I've seen his site, I know he can do HTML & DHTML, but I still wanted 
to correctly evaluate whether I was getting someone that had the 
skill level my company is looking for.

Here's the question: Is asking to look at, without making copies 
(example: reading it off a floppy disk) of previous work at the 
source level out of line?

For those of you who are hiring developers: Any hiring tips?
