Late post. As usual.
It started with an online competition — write programs, solve problems, get points. I wouldn’t call the problems easy, but they weren’t hard either. So I solved all of them. To make it even less impressive, only about twenty people submitted anything at all.
But the result was just what it was: I ended up with a free ticket to PyCon APAC 2014.
I’d prefer a conference about a more functional programming language, but I’ll take what I get. Another adventure!
