We're actively looking for ideas on how to improve Weekly Challenges and would love to hear what you think!Submit Feedback
The last time I posted a challenge (#155) it dealt with string analysis and decrypting a message from a noisy block of text.
People have been interested in how I came up with the data block for the challenge.
I decided this would be a good opportunity to let you be creative and show me!
The challenge this week is to create an ENCODER for a message that is compatible with the DECODER we built in challenge #155.
The easiest thing to do would be to simply generate some number of copies of the input message
(even just copying out the original message), but let us disqualify all such non-encodings!
Here's my solution. My first 1st post :)
A snippet of my encoded message:
Me: This looks like a tricky one, but I'm sure I can get there using the skills I already have using the basic tools that I'm most familiar with.
Also me: ... Although this seems like a good time to try learning Python, on an extremely difficult challenge, even though I've never used it before... right?!?
Extremely pleased that I eventually figured this one out... and jumping in the deep end appears to be the way to go with Python, because that was SUPER fun and now I want to try more :) #neverstoplearning #andnevertakeeasywayout
