In honour of the SC2010UK event held at Bletchley Park, we have decided to put forth a coding challenge loosely based on the historic efforts of the WWII code breakers.
There will be 5 questions you need to solve. Good Luck! Enjoy!
To obtain the questions for the challenge you will need to use a JSON service to request each question. An example on how to use the JSON REST API is found here: https://gist.github.com/1490292
Please note that you will need to use the 'reference-url' attribute in the JSON data to get the information needed to solve the question. Once you have successfully completed a question, then you will be redirected to the next question in turn.
If you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can start the challenge by requesting http://minisculuschallenge.com/start.
The Minisculus Challenge is suitable for focus groups, code retreats or individuals who want to sharpen their coding skills or learn a new language. Solutions to the challenge can be submitted using any coding language.
If you organize a code retreat using the Minisculus Challenge and would like us to promote the event on this website, then please email email@example.com.
Below is a list of the brave souls who have completed the challenge and lived to tell the tale...
