In this article we review last week's Create your own Pomodoro Timer code challenge.
From now on we will merge our solution into our Community branch and include anything noteworthy here, because:
we are learning just like you, we are all equals :)
we need the PRs too ;) ... as part of Hacktoberfest No. 5 that just kicked of (5 PRs and you get a cool t-shirt)
Secondly we encourage you to send us a quotable blurb for our weekly review post (what you are reading now), see this new message on our platform's PR submit page:
Don't be shy, share your work!
Check out the awesome PRs by our community for PCC52 (or from fork:
git checkout community && git merge upstream/community):
Some cool stuff that got PR'd for this challenge: tkinter, argparse, pytest, wxPython, Django, awesome, no?!
Other learnings we spotted in Pull Requests for other challenges this week: collections, itertools, xml files, list comprehensions.
Thanks to everyone for your participation in our blog code challenges!
Keep the PRs coming, again specially this Hacktoberfest month!
