This Week I Learned (2016-03-09)

HackerRank, Belize, and coffee in Kansas.

  • I’ve been playing around with HackerRank a lot this week, and as I result I’m becoming more familiar with a wider set of functions (things like array_sum() and substr_replace()). Programming languages are languages, and this is a good way to drill vocab.
  • $array[] = $value; is the same as array_push($array, $value)
  • It’s entirely possible to book a trip to Belize with a few clicks: tickets and beachside bungalow were secured in a matter of minutes today.
  • Kansas City apparently has quite the coffee scene. Looking forward to checking it out this weekend when I go to Kansas (*happy dance*).
  • I finished all of Mystery Show’s first season last week and am now getting into the Myths & Legends podcast. Favorite episode so far: Thor’s fake wedding to a giant.
