I was given my interview itinerary for an on-site with Palantir and one of the interviews is an “existing code base” interview where they’ll give me access to a Java code base and ask me to make some change.

Has anyone else done this before? How hard was it? What should I expect?

    They will show you a codebase with some tests that fail. Your task is to make them pass by identifying and correcting bug(s). They want to see how good can you dive in a piece of code you don't know

    I’ve a web crawler code base of about 600 lines and multiple test cases to fix. I can send you that if you wanna practice.
