Daily coding problem
« on: June 20, 2018, 03:19:00 PM »
I came across this site. You give them an email address and they'll send you a coding problem every day, with the solution from the previous day. These are common coding problems used in interviews, so if you're looking to get a software job, it seems like a good way to keep sharp.  They're fun too.

https://www.dailycodingproblem.com/

Here's a sample problem they give:

Quote
There's a staircase with N steps, and you can climb 1 or 2 steps at a time. Given N, write a function that returns the number of unique ways you can climb the staircase. The order of the steps matters.

For example, if N is 4, then there are 5 unique ways:

1, 1, 1, 1
2, 1, 1
1, 2, 1
1, 1, 2
2, 2

What if, instead of being able to climb 1 or 2 steps at a time, you could climb any number from a set of positive integers X? For example, if X = {1, 3, 5}, you could climb 1, 3, or 5 steps at a time. Generalize your function to take in X.
