JGPaiva's GridMove and Ahk Tools / GridMove at github
« on: February 22, 2013, 04:10 AM »
Hi guys,

As you probably have already noticed, I haven't had the time to update GridMove as frequently as I should.
So, I've decided to make the fact that GridMove is open-source more explicit. Even though the source has been available at GridMove's site for a while, it wasn't very easy to fork, so I have created a GitHub project for it.
Not only does this simplify integrating any changes other people propose, but also makes it easier for me to update the code.

Please keep in mind that (unfortunately) this will probably not reflect in more frequent updates for the compiled version available on the site, since it's really hard for me to test code or create new packaged versions (mostly due to the fact that since 2 years ago I've moved completely to mac).

So, I leave you with a link to the repository:

I've been trying to learn some python (trying to add some value to the huge amount of procrastination I've been doing recently), and I've found this site:

It's pretty interesting because it also features this "after you complete the challenge you can see other's solutions" mentality, and has quite a large user base. However, it has four drawbacks: 1 - the english may be incomprehensible at times, 2 - you must use their interpreter (which misses some modules such as numpy), 3 - the challenges start way too hard, you'll have to know the very basics already 4 - some challenges are not very much a programming exercise but mostly a math challenge (the one I'm now requires me to do trajectory intersections).

I think the biggest advantage is the fact that there are *many* solutions, ranging from way too complicated to very simple, and every solution has a lot of user comments picking apart the code and suggesting improvements.
