Is there new homework on the horizon?
I personally would love it if there was at least one bit of homework per week available. Some people might like to "code along" but to me that feels a little too open ended to get myself to do it on the regular. I like the focused homework assignments because I feel they deliver more learning/hour even if there is (in absolute terms) more to learn by coding along. The latter feels like too much of a time investment for me.
Of course this is just a suggestion, I very much enjoy this project either way :-)
I was just having a quick think about this. The problem with following along for me is that weeks, months or years down the road there will likely be large stretches in which I don't have the time/energy/whatever to follow the project. Afterwards I would be sitting there with a codebase that's far behind Per's and it would take quite a lot just to catch up. I think I'm not the only one for whom this would be a certainty were they to follow along.
Now, my idea is:
Maybe you could from time to time (or however often you like, of course) create the homework in a way in which you take the bitwise codebase but strip out whatever is the object of the exercise. Be it an algorithm, a specialized datastructure, a whole subsystem etc. People who are following along could still do the exercise in their own codebase.
