    @billgates isn't there a limt of 24hrs? Or is it 24hrs per started challenge

    But seriously... Some developer at Google wrote this platform.... And the hopping bunny.... I suddenly feel a large gap in skills....

    @Kimmax Level 2, 72hrs to complete 2 problems. Level 1 was 48 for one. I actually completed it in 30mins. I think that was basically a "can you even code?" sort of test.

    @Kimmax btw u have a nice number there

    I think the bunny is made with a tool.

    I just thought of something... @dfox

    Wouldn't devRant be the perfect community to recruit tech talent from? We're all passionate devs and recognize incompetence.... which we rant about here 😂

    @billgates
    What was the first problem about ??

    @sevensins its random I think but fairly easy.

    @billgates
    Yeah .. I know...just waiting to find some more time to get started with level 2...
  • 0
    @sevensins well you get 3 days to solve 1 problem. I actually ended up solving 1/2... 2nd one is a dilemma... Gotta think what it wants....

    The first few were very easy.

    But I accepted the first without realizing it would start immediately... at like 2am. I went to bed and did it in the morning, for a huge elapsed time on something really easy :<

    The first 2 were easy. It took me 15 minutes for the 1st and 30 for the 2nd, then I realized I had stuff to do for Uni so I closed it. I have taken a look at the following challenges but they are way harder.

    Do you know what happens if you manage to complete all the challenges?

    @Ashkin that's my plan actually, but fit the 2nd... I feel sorta stuck... It needs math....

    @stefano a recruiter prolly comes after you and treats u like a VIP I guess

    I feel dumb now.... Seems i can't compare against regular devs or at least in these algo problems... 🙁😥😦😧😩😟😞

    @billgates Unfortunately I don't think I'm that good. 😥 One of the challenges even requires path finding algorithms which I don't know yet.

    @stefano so u completed Level 2 entirely?
  • 0
    @billgates Don't give up :) I you feel you're stuck, just take a break. Try solving the problem on paper first, then code it. 🙂

    I think so, I don't even remember. I'm too tired and it's 2am here 😂

    @stefano dynamic programming or Shortest Path, DFS, BFS I guess... Graph stuff... Wondering if i should even continue... Feels like it's gonna be like HackerRank and well that didn't go well... I do like the bunnies tho..... Dilemma...

    @billgates i completed levl 1 in 15 mins... Then level 2 got me stuck for like an entire day... I couldn't stop thinking about it and couldn't solve it.... Finally came up with a solution that passed the test cases but was really slow when uploaded for the cases that google searches for.... Gave up and searched for a solution online.... Found the answer and cleared level 2.... Left it there as i plan on learning algorithms and data structures first before attempting something like that. 😅

    @itch96 cheater!!!! j/k... for me i guess this is sorta telling what to expect from Google/techniical interviews... given the amount of time i've already taken.... i've already failed.... :( Guess Google is just trying to be nice with their 72 hour time limit/problem.

    @stefano @Ashkin did you get gearing up for destruction?

    After 2-3hrs I think i sorta know vaguely what I should do to solve it but still going to take a lot of risk and error...

    Btw do you guys use an IDE or just the online editor?

    @billgates
    Try it locally before putting it through the automated testing system

    @sevensins I did this as well. Their built-in tools are clunky
  • 2
    Its 2am, just jumped out of bed cuz i think i thought of how to solve the problem...
  • 2
    @Ashkin Yeah I did if n % 2 == 0: ... And it just said 'TypeError on line ...' it works fine locally too...

    @Florens add the () to the if

    I think I ran into this too, I usually do use parenthesis but forgot for one of them.

    This is what I have

    @Florens maybe try splitting it

    M = n%2

    If M != ...

    Nope, same issue

    EDIT: HOLY SHIT I JUST LEARNT THAT THE INPUTS ARE STRINGS. WHY WOULD THEY BE STRINGS???
