This was the third Codility Challenge this year and for the third time I’m getting Golden Award for my solution. After the Ferrum 2018 and Cobaltum 2018, this award is for the current challenge Nickel 2018. This time I got the solution in my head as soon as I read the assignment and I was doing that while holding a screaming baby in my hand and my 2-year old was destroying the living room in the background. With this task I felt like I wasn’t challenged properly.
Also I didn’t need to solve this in Visual Studio which is the environment that I’m used to and I use to solve these challenges.

From time to time I like to solve interesting algorithmic problems and a while ago I discovered Codility and their challenges. This time the active challenge is called Ferrum 2018 and I managed to get the Golden Award recognition which means that I solved the problem with optimal code execution time and memory complexity.
If you like this kind of programming brain teasers you should try to get an award for this one. There are way more complex problems on Codility (for example the Chromium 2017 was one of the more demanding ones, at least for me) but let me give you brief introduction about the awards and the Ferrum 2018 challenge.Read More »
