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.
Lars Albertsson, former software engineer at Spotify and Google and currently freelance data engineer via mapflat, maintains this list of data engineering resources. It includes many links to videos and courses about data pipelines, batch processing, Kafka, NoSQL, Clojure, Scala, Parquet, Luigi, Storm, Spark, Hadoop, Cassandra, and other tools I am not too familiar with. Looks like it could function as a great curated overview for starters.
