Yet Another Software Challenge

For those interested in programming riddles, I would like to
announce a new programming challenge I’m just launching at
http://software.challenge.googlepages.com

This challenge is in its early stage and thus set to be continuously
improved.

I would be especially interested in your comments and feedbacks about
this initiative and its relevance.

Enjoy!

Got through the first challenge in about maybe 5-10 minutes, mostly
because I misread the description wrong. This is very cool but I feel
like i’d spend my day on it if I didn’t force myself to put off
working on it until later!

How many riddles are there so far?

Well it’s too cute for me. I can’t seem to find a programming challenge
there.

I only see a page which appears to be some kind of adventure game with
a a kind of “speak friend and enter” thing about salmons willing to
spawn, and only one visible link which takes me to a picture of a
steaming building.

Rick, what do we here often tell people complaining about missing
documentation? :wink:

Sorry, that seems to be a translation of a phrase about salmon from
some language other than english (French I’d guess).

In English we say that Salmon swim upstream to spawn, I’d already
tried various urls based on that.

I’ve now also tried various variations of swiming to the source, going
to the source, etc.

It doesn’t seem to be worth it go get to what’s ostensibily a
programming challenge. I guess I’ll stick to more transparent
sources, and reserve that part of my brain to crosswords and sudoku.

But have you gone to the source?

The riddle’s solution is in French but one might still find it by googling.
For what concerns me I speak much better French than Python :slight_smile:
Sudoku is cool anyway :slight_smile:

/me googled. I thought that it was fun that I had to translate a page
to get the answer :slight_smile:

first lvl < 50 sec with gedit and google ;))) pretty easy because the
first 4 words already give you the right answer with google but I’ll try
the next one

if someone likes these kinds of riddle you should check out malattias
site. there will probably the hardest in the net!

one must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a
dancing star

It is from Star Wars, but it was Luke, my mistake :wink:
