There is nothing like a challenge to bring out the best in man. - Sean Connery
Hi Pythonistas, a new week, a new 'bite' of Python coding! This week we'll let you import a Podcast feed, store it in SQLite, and email unplayed episodes at a regular interval. Inspiration here. Enjoy!
However even free form needs some structure to talk the same language. That's why we'd like you to try the following:
Pick your favorite podcast and find its feed.
Mark the episodes as unplayed.
Set up one or two jobs to: A) send a daily (or weekly) email with podcast link(s) for you to consume, and B) update the DB with new episodes.
Mark the episode(s) as played (done) in the DB.
This doc also provides you with instructions how you can submit your code to our community branch via a Pull Request (PR). Cool PRs will be featured in our end-of-the-week challenge review.
Last but not least: there is no best solution, only learning more and better Python. Good luck!
Keep Calm and Code in Python!
-- Bob and Julian
