Browser game teaches Java, C#.
well I got stuck @ 1-6 so that shows how rubbish I am, lol
Just hit 1-06 myself. Not an easy one. I don't think I'm learning a single thing about coding though, just algebra!
Not sure if there even is an elegant solution to this, or if I'm supposed to just use if statements...
Got it! I was thinking in real rather than int!
Went through section 1 which is writing single line return statements. I found some of them tricky to find the correct pattern. Definitely nothing to do with learning code there. In fact some were just infuriating .
Section two is about loops so that's where things take off a bit. Did the first one with a C style for loop, then I tried a foreach loop, I finally got it down to an array declaration a while loop with 1 line of code and a return for the array and still I only get 1 out of 3 score. :'(
Anyway its definitely not fun, but I think they are on to something on interactive coding exercises. I'm just not sure the approach they have taken is any good. Its also quite slow at times
Definitely some of the best implemented coding CBT I've tried....
I agree figuring out the sequences in section 1 is annoying.
Separate names with a comma.
