Whether you're learning for the first time or the fifth, I agree that working through specific problems or algorithms is the only way to understand a language.

Have been wondering for a while if there is space in the monastery for people to post their favorite little puzzles or programming exercises, perhaps organized by chapters of the Camel Book...

In school for mathematics, we always had to learn a concept and then make up exam questions that tested that concept. Then our teacher would choose the best ones and give them to us as an (ungraded) exam. You'd get extra credit if your question was included (and obviously no points for getting it right!) I suppose I'm motivated by the same idea here...

What I'm suggesting is only very slightly different from what we already do here by creating challenges and answering, but organizing it that way would make it more user-friendly for learners at any stage....
