As I wrote about Project Euler and CodingGame before, someone recommended me CodeWars. CodeWars offers free online learning exercises to develop your programming skills through fun daily challenges.
In line with Project Euler, you are tasked with solving increasingly complex programming challenges. At CodeWars, these little problems you need to solve with code are called kata.
Kata take a test-driven development approach: the programs you write need to pass the tests of the developer who made the kata in the first place. Only then are you awarded with honour and can you earn your ranks and progress to the more complex kata.
Sounds fun right? I’m definitely going to check this out, as they support a wide range of programming languages, each with many kata to solve!
A friend of mine pointed me to this great website where you can interactively practice and learn new programming skills by working through small coding challenges, like making a game.
Kunststube wrote this great introduction to text encoding. Ever wondered why your Word document sometimes starts with ÉGÉìÉRÅ[ÉfÉBÉìÉOÇÕìÔÇµÇ≠Ç»Ç¢? Well, encoding‘s why. Kunststube introduces you to the wonderful world of ASCII, WLatin, Mac Latin, and UTF-8, -16 and -32.
This specific link has been on my to-do list for so-long now that I’ve decided to just share it without any further ado.
