While job hunting this time around, a recruiter pointed me to a website called Project Euler, as a great place to practice.
Project Euler is a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that will require more than just mathematical insights to solve. Although mathematics will help you arrive at elegant and efficient methods, the use of a computer and programming skills will be required to solve most problems.
The problems always seem overly complicated, and somehow ask you to find the sum of this operation or said sequence. Most of the time, you are even provided with a sample input and output. An input I’m sure which is carefully chosen to tempt you to write a brute force algorithm.
I immediately went to do them in F#, because I find it so fun. 25 problems later… Why stop there…
After talking to Justin about it, I decided to blog my progress.
So this is a test to see how far I can get.
This might take a while…
