in reply to [OT] Perl / Computer Science Science Fair Projects

Another "Board Game"ish problem that you might consider is Pentominos. The challenge is to write a piece of software that can, for example, list all the solutions for the 6x10 board. When it comes to displaying the results either a simple printout, a graphical display or, better still, an actual physical set can be quite effective.

The solution exercises a variety of CS concepts and yet even a brute force approach can quickly yield a few usable results.

[Corion]: marto: Yeah, even though I didn't write any code :)
[Corion]: But at least I have a plan of action to move the site to https, played some (free!) VR games with friends and watched the plans for the next German Perl workshop progress ;)
[Corion]: AltSpace VR is amazingly good - highly polished and with some of the games you get for free what you'd pay EUR 20 or EUR 40 otherwise
[Corion]: But maybe it's also due to that I play with friends, which makes a game more enjoyable anyway ;)
[Corion]: Oh - I released a new version of some module, thanks to a pull request. But I don't consider "update Makefile.PL" and "update author tests" as "writing code" ;-D
