In this article we review this week's code challenge #21 for which we got some nice PRs.

This was a relatively easy challenge but building it out to something cool had its challenge. We are stoked to receive solutions with similar functionality yet using different technologies.


We merged 4 PRs onto our Community branch:

Everytime a PR comes in we cheer with joy, humbled by the fact we see you are stretching yourselves by taking our challenges (we do too!). Keep up the good work, the stuff you are building is amazing!

Remember there is no deadline, you can PR your code anytime. Just remember to isolate (branch) your changes and submit against our Community branch (as per instructions).

When we merge your work onto our Challenges branch the PR auto-closes but you can still add comments to it. For new revisions, just open a new PR.

Come code with us forking our challenges repo. Have fun!

Keep Calm and Code in Python!
