My concern would be, given that interviews are already a fairly stressful
situation, that the developer familiar with Fibonacci is immediately put at
ease. I know I can often rattle off the answer to something I know far more
quickly and in a confident manner, than something I'm seeing for the first
time. Am I a good enough interviewer to distinguish a good developer, and
someone who's seen or coded the problem before ? No.
For that reason, I would have thought there were other, better, recursion
problems out there I could use.
