It's end of the week again so we review the code challenge of this week. It's never late to join, just fork our challenges repo and start coding.

Possible solution and learning

First of all it is great to see more people working on our challenges.

Games are challenging, we learned quite a bit from this one. We also saw better ways of doing things. Our solution is here. A summary what we learned:

Process update around Forking

We got some feedback that Forks don't lead to activity on your Github profile. One of our followers was so nice to update our INSTALL (via PR). Maybe you want to use the workaround under III. if the credit thing is an issue for you. See issue #2 for more details.


We hope you are enjoying these challenges. Please provide us feedback if we can improve anything ...

If you have an interesting challenge you want us to feature, don't hesitate to open a new issue or reach out to us.

See you next week ...
