PyCoffee is an experimental format of informal Python meetups, organized by Python Porto in partnership with Porto i/o.
Every time we come up with a new challenge. If you are interested in sharpen your skills by participating in it, join us every other Sunday in Porto i/o Downtown.
We speak English or Portuguese, and we welcome guests with different backgrounds, coming from different countries and pursuing their own very different goals.
CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK
We keep sharpening our Python skills with HackerRank challenges.
HackerRank is a place where programmers from all over the world come together to solve problems in a wide range of Computer Science domains such as algorithms, machine learning, or artificial intelligence, as well as to practice different programming paradigms like functional programming.
Our challenge is to solve as many HackerRank challenges from Python domain as possible. Share your experience with fellow guests and rank high in the board.
To avoid wasting time on the event, we ask you to make some preparatory work before.
* Install Python on your laptop if it’s not installed ( https://www.python.org/downloads/)
* Read HackerRank FAQ https://www.hackerrank.com/faq and create an account there (https://www.hackerrank.com/)
* Observe some problems from https://www.hackerrank.com/domains/python and try to solve some of them.
We start the event by familiarizing ourselves with the platform and the challenges from https://www.hackerrank.com/domains/python (15–20 minutes)
Then we divide ourselves into groups of two to three participants randomly, and spend the rest of the time (about one hour) of coding.
We finish the event by sharing our progress and what we learned along the way.
Any questions, please let us know!
