RECAP - Perl Weekly Challenge - 009

Monday, May 27, 2019| Tags: Perl5, Perl6

I would like to this opportunity to thank one of the respected member Kian-Meng Ang for the help in reviewing Perl 5 challenges every week. Checkout her last review if you haven’t seen already. Ever since I started reviewing the challenges, I am looking for volunteer to do the same for Perl 6. I know it is weekly commitment and can be tiresome. If we can create team of reviewers for each languages then it would be even more fun. I feel guilty every week not talking about Perl 6 magical solutions.


Adam Russell

Andrezgz

Adam attempted to solve the square number challenge using pure Perl without using any external library. But for the ranking challenge, he took the help of CPAN libraries like Tie::RefHash and boolean. [#1] [#2] [BLOG].

Andrezgz

Andrezgz used operator heavily to solve the square number challenge. I found ranking solution very tricky to follow. At first, I couldn’t figure where is logic for ranking. [#1] [#2].

Arne Sommer

Arne Sommer blog is as usual at its best. Highly recommended. [BLOG].

Athanasius

Joelle Maslak

Joelle Maslak

Joelle solution to the square number challenge is one of the best we received. Even the ranking challenge solution is well crafted. She is one the few participants who took on the API challenge seriously. Although it is optional, she never misses it. Here again she not only solved the challenge but also dedicated an entire blog talking about her journey. [#1] [#2] [#3] [BLOG].

Laurent Rosenfeld

Laurent Rosenfeld

As always the case with Laurent, you are served with plenty of choices. Each blog of him can easily be turned into chapter in book. Who knows one day, with his permission, I might do that. He wrote another blog talking about the use Functional Programming to solve the challenge. Highly Recommended. [#1] [#2] [BLOG1] [BLOG2].
