People use them as a speed contest, interview prep, company training, university coursework, practice problems, or to challenge each other.
You don't need a computer science background to participate - just a little programming knowledge and some problem solving skills will get you pretty far. Nor do you need a fancy computer; every problem has a solution that completes in at most 15 seconds on ten-year-old hardware.

Tim Cooke wrote:Part 2 today (day 3) also made me sit and think for a while too. My initial solution to part 1 did not translate well to part 2 and needed a bit of a refactor which is actually a lot like real life software development where you have to adapt your code to accommodate new requirements.

Are you perchance the "Sree P" from Tim's leaderboard?

Sree are you still in Chicago? Have you been waiting up to 1am for these every day? Do let us know if you make it on the global leaderboard.
