📅 Next Week’s Challenge

  • Challenge #457 (04.12): Pick 3. No, this isn't a lottery challenge. Instead, you'll combine three previous challenges into a single interaction.
  • Challenge #458 (04.19): Roulette games. Inspired by a recent community discussion, this would be an excellent challenge topic to practice working with dials and random number variables.

Just a quick heads up – if you want your blog, website, or LinkedIn included in our recap posts, could you do me a favor and add or update those links onto your ELH profile sometime this week?

I found some broken links last week when I pulled the recap together. You spend a lot of time building creative examples, and your work deserves all the attention it can get.
