And the Winners Are 👀

To make sure that any bugs in our algorithm don’t affect the outcome, editors voted for the top stories. Here are the winners:

This month, the editors’ favorite is How Quake III Helped Me Debug Strawberry Filled Kiełbasa by @tomaszs

I have closed Quake and started to code. It took me six long days to figure everything out and set up the console. It was an input field with a button. The button passed the command to the Javascript code. Then the code executed it and appended the result to a div element on the website. One day before the deadline I was ready to try it out. I called a command /show_log and immediately the page became filled with all the data and steps the algorithm made to assume kiełbasa is pierogi. \n

After testing for several hours I finally managed to fix all bugs in the code. It was working flawlessly. And the console allowed me to prove it!

\
Congratulations, @tomaszs! You’ve won $500!

In the second place, we’ve got Learn How to Make Java Classes More Consistent with Minimal Effort by @artemsutulov

Well done, @artemsutulov! You’ve won $300!
