Let’s solve some programming puzzles together every week.
I’ve been streaming on Twitch (@karthikb351) for a few weeks now, and I finally think I’m in a position to take on a slightly more complicated project - building a small programming community!
A Discord server that’s for folks who want to spend some time every week working on some simple programming challenges/puzzles, and then discussing them with others. Specifically designed for people new to (and experienced in) programming. Discord: discord.gg/NvwRKJDG8H.
Who is this for?
- If you are someone who has some basic understanding of a programming language, these problems are going to be more logic challenges than something where the code is complicated.
- If you are something who codes for their day job, this is a great oppurtunity to spend a few minutes every week to work on some fun puzzles, and explore solutions from other people. I personally have found these sorts of programming problems to be a welcome change of pace from what I usually do at work (which, let’s face it, is ultimately 99% just writing CRUD apps).
- If you’ve been meaning to pick up a new langauge, or explore a new programming paradigm, this is a great excuse to finally do it. The problems are simple enough that you could possibly do it in an new langauge if you wanted to.
What kind of challenges/puzzles?
How to participate
Best place to start is to probably join the Discord at discord.gg/NvwRKJDG8H.
- We’re doing 5 puzzles/week (so 5 weeks to finish Advent of Code 2020’s 25 puzzles).
- Discussions and solutions are posted on the
#advent-of-code-chatchannel on the Discord.
- Experienced programmers should try and set some additional contraints/challenges, like solving the puzzles in a new language.
- If you are new to programming, the puzzles are largely logical, and not very complicated to code. You can use the
#programming-helpchannel on the Discord if you find yourself stuck somewhere.
- We have a private leaderboard that you can join to track progress against the other members
- Create a GitHub repo, say hi on the Discord, and hopefully learn something new!
