#98653 - In progress
Responding to: Craig Steiner's previous message
I'm in the process of coding the "coding challenge" page. This will eventually allow people to submit their suggestions for a code challenge automatically.

However, for the sake of testing, would anyone like to suggest an initial code challenge? I guess it should be complex enough that it is truly a challenge but not so complex that it requires 8 hours of development. For example, "Write the code for a subroutine that multiplies a 16-bit value in R6 and R7 by a 16-bit value in R4 and R5. The result should be left in R0, R1, R2, and R3." I don't want to use that, though, because the answer is pretty much in the tutorials (though I guess we could see if someone has a better solution).

I'd like to test this "live". I already have code that will present the current challenge and let anyone submit a solution; the solution will not be made public but the user can edit his own solution as many times as he'd like as long as the challenge is still open.

I'd like to get people submitting solutions to a preliminary challenge as that will give me better data with which to test rather than inventing test data offline.

If someone can provide a suggestion for an initial challenge, I think I could have the code challenge section working on a preliminary basis by Wednesday.
