Programming Challenges

11 Nov 2010 #challenge #programming #python #r

I’m a fan of puzzles, programming and learning, so I’ve always enjoyed The Python Challenges. Recently my coworkers Delia, Chris and I came up with the idea of doing some of those within the company to help ourselves and our coworkers become more familiar with Python and R (and to a lesser extent SQL and other languages).

The end result is the YG Challenge, where we’ll be posting a few problems a week in at least R & Python, then solving them. Week 1 is up, and we have some great ideas for the future. Intended for our coworkers, it’s public because why not! Feel free to take a stab at solving them, especially if you haven’t used either of those languages before.
