HEADLINES



The wait is over today finally and here we enter into the 100th week of The Weekly Challenge.

There are plenty of happy stories to share with the team.

I still remember the day I started the journey, it was just me. The first helping hand was offered by Kian-Meng Ang. She helped me with the Perl Reviews, followed by Laurent Rosenfeld doing Raku Reviews. Then there was little pause before Ryan Thompson helped with Perl and Raku reviews. We had another pause before Andrew Shitov helped with Raku reviews and Colin Crain helped with Perl reviews. As of today, Colin is still helping with Perl reviews while we are still looking for Raku reviewer.

Please find below review stats as of today:

Perl Reviews

1. Kian-Meng Ang: 33

2. Colin Crain: 30

3. Ryan Thompson: 12

3. Contributors: 158

4. Fork: 199

5. Stars: 90


Last but not least, I would like to thank each and every member for their support and encouragement.



Our solo sponsor Pete Sergeant has been a great support to keep us motivated. We are lucky that he agreed to continue the journey with us in the year 2021. I would like to personally thank Pete and his entire team for their generosity. It would be great if we could add few more to sponsor the prize money so that we could go back and declare weekly champions as we have done in the past. I hope and wish this will become possible in 2021. The amount doesn’t have to be huge. However, it would be nice to show off bunch of supporters. If an organisation comes forward and supports us then that would be the ultimate achievement.

TASK #1 › Fun Time

Submitted by: Mohammad S Anwar

You are given a time (12 hour / 24 hour).

Write a script to convert the given time from 12 hour format to 24 hour format and vice versa.

Ideally we expect a one-liner.

Example 1:

Input: 05:15 pm or 05:15pm
Output: 17:15

Example 2:

Input: 19:15
Output: 07:15 pm or 07:15pm


TASK #2 › Triangle Sum

Submitted by: Mohammad S Anwar

You are given triangle array.

Write a script to find the minimum path sum from top to bottom.

When you are on index i on the current row then you may move to either index i or index i + 1 on the next row.

Example 1:

Input: Triangle = [ [1], [2,4], [6,4,9], [5,1,7,2] ]
Output: 8

Explanation: The given triangle

            1
           2 4
          6 4 9
         5 1 7 2

The minimum path sum from top to bottom:  1 + 2 + 4 + 1 = 8

             [1]
           [2]  4
           6 [4] 9
          5 [1] 7 2

Example 2:

Input: Triangle = [ [3], [3,1], [5,2,3], [4,3,1,3] ]
Output: 7

Explanation: The given triangle

            3
           3 1
          5 2 3
         4 3 1 3

The minimum path sum from top to bottom: 3 + 1 + 2 + 1 = 7

             [3]
            3  [1]
           5 [2] 3
          4 3 [1] 3


Last date to submit the solution 23:59 (UK Time) Sunday 21st February 2021.
