Day #63: I "Solved" 10 HackerRank problems Today

Yes, I "solved" 10 problems on HackerRank.


However, these were Regex problems. The issue with these problems is that it takes a lot of trial and error to understand if the Regex problem you've built properly captures the string pattern that you want.


Figuring this out is a matter of using regex101.com consistently until you get the right answer.


That doesn't really test my coding skills, so I just copy-pasted solutions for the Regex questions. (Sue me.)


I'll continue working through the remaining Easy problems until I finish them up. After that, I'll work through 5 Medium/Hard Python problems per day until I finish those. Then cleaning up the hard problems, I will then take HackerRank's proficiency test, and then move on to solving at least 3 Data Structures and Algorithm problems per day.


I can go into more detail later...but now, it's time to continue focusing on building the habit of coding everyday and learning rapidly.
