There is no doubt that programming challenges are fun and addicting! However, it depends on your knowledge in a particular programming language, how difficult those are, or what kind of challenges are 👻
For instance, challenges where you have to find the result of b %= x + y / t * b or the kind of challenges where you need to find the exact result of a programming language from options such 'a', ''a'', a or a (notice blank spaces before the last a), in my opinion, are not productive!
In most cases, you are using a programming language as a tool to solve problems (not in life, sorry 😆). Your know-how, working team strategies, programmer soft skills, and others are vital to face a situation into a development team. You can have 20 years working on C++ and still check how to pass parameters to functions 🦾
Your skills in how to solve a problem, how to approach it to effectively get a solution in a period of time T, how to solve possible issues/bugs... I believe they are of utmost importance as a coder.
The coding challenge on Instagram ☠️
Despite my point of view or even my perspective, I performed from January 7 through April 15, a set of coding challenges on Instagram 🤨 (why? well, just for fun!) I employed languages that I used in the past, trying to be more logical than specific with the language itself.
