Been doing Exercism and A Cloud Guru courses. I’m trying to get firmer grasp on Rust, Go and planning on finally doing AWS certs.
Exercism is a great site, thanks for putting a spotlight on it! I started doing some exercises there to sharpen my skills as well… just now have to wait a few more days for the site to re-launch again
6 more hours to go
The re-launched site is seriously great, isn’t it? Have you tried it already? It seriously got me addicted, I’m now going through the Elixir track any time I find some free time – now somewhat stuck on solving the Knapsack problem, but I won’t give up
If you really get stuck, you can ask for mentor help
I really like the way the exercises are organised on the new site. Now there is a more coherent path to follow.
I was browsing and say that exercism.io got a brand new look and feel!
Gonna continue the Rust and Elixir track then.
Love the built in editor, that’s great work.
Split these posts into a new thread - the new site looks great!!
Still wondering what “teams” is going to look like when they relaunch that next year. Been thinking of offering sort of a team-based mentoring service.
Ha, I failed my trainee exam on the Knapsack problem! Fun fact: in Germany you can still complete your trainee education even if you fail the final exam.
Such a slick look. Haven’t tried the new version yet.
My word can I just say that the mentors on the site are absolutely stellar? A few days ago, I submitted a mentoring request to get my implementation of binary search algorithm reviewed, and while I expected a perhaps single sentence back or maybe one paragraph, I got a thorough walkthrough through my code, explaining what works well and what could be further improved or made more readable. If your username is the same on Exercism and on this forum, then thank you one more time, @neenjaw!
