Programming Problems


André Roberge has started a project to embed programming challenges in his Crunchy project. Crunchy is a way to embed both Python code and an interpreter into a web page, making it great for Python education projects.

I like the idea of collecting both sources of programming challenges, and solutions to them in Python, as a way of spurring interest. Discussion around alternative solutions could get pretty interesting. Anyway, rather than try to coordinate this through the comments on André’s blog, or via email, I created a page on the Python wiki to help organize this: Problem Sets. I listed the 99 Prolog Problems that André pointed to originally, and a couple more sources of programming challenges I was aware of. Hopefully more people will fill in both the sources, and some solutions. I’ve started to put up a few solutions, but this is definitely something that would benefit from more participation.

If you know of a good source of programming problems (or want to create one), or want to provide some solutions of your own, or even just kibbitz, please dive in!
