Exercism has been getting a lot of love over the past few months:
Someone recently pointed out that Exercism had been added to the Awesome Rust list.
Did you realize that Exercism has been used by people in over 200 countries? I didn't know that until Vicky Brasseur asked me about it as she was preparing her articleImprove your programming skills with Exercism, which was published a few weeks ago on opensource.com.
SDTimes (Software Development Times) listed Exercism as their project of the week in mid-January.
Ozan Onay at Bradfield CS wrote an article, In 2017 learn every language, that hit the top of Hacker News a few weeks back, and Exercism got an honorable mention.
Speaking of every language... people have asked for (and started working on) a few more tracks lately.
* Thanks to SaschaMann and andrej-makarov-skrt the Julia track has enough exercises to launch. They're working through the final bits of the launch checklist, and if you want to help add exercises or beta test the track, that would be much appreciated. * kotp and rpottsoh are working on a Delphi Pascal track, which also has enough exercises to launch. If you know Pascal we could always use your help with the track either on the site (giving feedback) or in the repo (adding exercises, giving feedback). * parkerl did a bunch of work on a new Prolog track before the new year. It looks like we could use help with documentation in order to get the track live.
* Smalltalk was requested by louiscyphre2017 and it looks like SergeStinckwich might help kick it off. This one is still in the very earliest days, so we need help with basically everything. If you're excited about Smalltalk, come help move it forward!
* One of the core developers of Chapel, ben-albrecht, has offered to kick off a new Chapel Track. If you know Chapel or want to learn it, now's you're chance to get in on the fun before everyone else.
And that's only the stuff I've actually managed to follow along on. There are 299 pull requests in my inbox that I've not yet had a chance to look at (thankfully, there are dozens of people who are looking at them).
To all of you who are participating in discussions, reporting issues, suggesting fixes, triaging issues, writing documentation, improving documentation, mentoring new contributors, reviewing pull requests, thinking out loud, and submitting patches: thank you!
