## RECAP - Perl Weekly Challenge - 015

Sunday, Jul 7, 2019| Tags: Perl, Raku

Let me welcome, Veesh Goldman, after a short break. He is the first member of the team. It is always nice to see member coming back after short break.

Last but not the least, keep contributing to the weekly challenge, making sure we keep the focus on Fun and Knowledge Sharing.

Adam surprised me with the use of prime url. Clean separation of method to filter strong and weak prime numbers. The Vigenere cipher solution is little hard to decode at first. But again, clean encode() and decode() subroutines to work with. [#1] [#2] [BLOG]

### Andrezgz

You must checkout the sub is_prime(). I am really impressed. [#1] [#2]

### Arne Sommer

Arne blog as usual as its best. You can’t afford to skip it. [BLOG]

### Athanasius

I am a big fan of CPAN. Every time I see someone use CPAN module to solve the challenge, it makes me very happy. Athanasius used Math::Prime::Util to solve the challenge. [#1] [#2] [#3]

### Daniel Mantovani

Daniel came up with his special sub is_prime(). Please do check out. I have become a fan of him now. [#1] [#2]

### Dave Jacoby

Dave raised a question in the beginning that really made me think again. Is 2 a prime number? [#1] [#2] [#3] [BLOG]

### Duane Powell

Duane also used Math::Prime::Util module to solve the challenge. I am impressed how he used pack/unpack to solve Vigenere cipher challenge. [#1] [#2]

### Duncan C. White

Reading Duncan’s code is always a pleasure. It appears to be a poetry to me every time. [#1] [#2]

### E. Choroba

I have noticed one thing in Choroba’s solution is that he always go for CPAN module if available otherwise he creates one. It makes the final solution just few lines of code. [#1] [#2] [BLOG]

### Guillermo Ramos

I loved the Vigenere cipher solution the most. You must check out. [#1] [#2] [#3]

### Gustavo Chaves

Kudos to Gustavo for keeping the prime number challenge solution so simple yet elegant. Same goes for Vigenere cipher challenge. [#1] [#2]

### Jaldhar H. Vyas

Jaldhar is one of the few hackers, I always look forward to every week. It is always fun reading his code. [#1] [#2] [BLOG]

### Joelle Maslak

I follow Joelle very closely on Twitter. Sometimes I wonder how she manages to find time for the weekly challenge. She is the most dedicated member of the team. [#1] [#2]

### Kian-Meng Ang

Our in-house Perl5 reviews, Kian-Meng, solved the prime number challenge using ntheory. I must admit, I wasn’t aware of this module before. [#1]

### Laurent Rosenfeld

Laurent is unmatchable in his analysis of challenges. He is great in presenting result of his analysis. At the end it looks so simple and easy. Functional programming became a special feature of Laurent blog now a days. I have learnt a lot by reading his blog. [#1] [#2] [BLOG1] [BLOG2]

### Lubos Kolouch

I loved the unit test with solution. Very few hackers do that. Lubos inclusion of unit test make it complete solution. [#1] [#2]

### Neil Bowers

Neil surprised me just before the deadline by submitting the blog for API challenge. Once again he released module for the challenge WebService::DetectLanguage. You must check out his blog. [#3] [BLOG]

### Roger Bell West

Roger’s code is not easy to follow at first. But once you got the hang of it, every thing becomes so simple. [#1] [#2]

### Ruben Westerberg

Ruben solution to the prime number challenge taught me something new. I am still wondering and trying to figure out the magic in the code. You must check out yourself. [#1] [#2]

### Simon Miner

Welcome to the team, Simon. I liked the fun use of regex in the solution. [#1]

### Steven Wilson

Steven blog is like a book with many chapters. I am sure you are going to enjoy it. [#1] [#2] [#2] [BLOG]

### Veesh Goldman

Welcome back, Veesh, it is always a pleasure to read your code. [#1] [#2]

### Walt Mankowski

Walt raised a question, within hours of releasing the challenge about prime numbers. I really enjoy the interaction among the team members. Check out his solution. [#1] [#2]

### Yozen Hernandez

Yozen is now of my most favourite hacker. I like the clarity in thoughts and how he processes his thoughts. [#1] [#2] [BLOG1] [BLOG2]
