This week, each one of you has a homework assignment ... - Tyler Durden (Fight club)
A new week, more coding!
We are grabbing this challenge from Raymond Hettinger's tweet (EAFP):
python data extrapolation contest: Tweet your prediction of the exact date and time(UTC) that http://pypi.python.org hits 100,000 packages
The submitted answers (tweet replies) were very different which made us curious. As it's a prediction there won't be one right answer of course. We challenge you to find a data set to make your prediction. We are curious what you will come up with ...
Start coding by forking our challenges repo:
$ git clone https://github.com/pybites/challenges
If you already forked it sync it:
# assuming using ssh key $ git remote add upstream [email protected]:pybites/challenges.git $ git fetch upstream # if not on master: $ git checkout master $ git merge upstream/master # cp pypi100k-template.py pypi100k.py # code
Remember: there is no best solution, only learning more/ better Python. We're looking forward reviewing our and your solutions end of this week. Good luck and have fun!
