Happy September! If you’ve got a long weekend this weekend, I hope you enjoy it. And if you don’t, well… enjoy it anyway! Let’s surf.
This was another busy week of speaking for me. I have to say though, one of my favorite things to come out of it was the latest episode of Remotely Interesting, my team’s podcast! My team tried its hardest to stay on topic, but, well… it was kind of a mess in the best way. Take a listen if you have time!

Are UI bugs escaping to production and leading to exhausting fire drills to get them fixed? Have you stopped trusting your automated UI tests because they are always failing, stopping your build, and zapping your flow?
There’s a better way to test your web app. Testim is an AI-powered UI test automation tool that gives developers an easy way to author self-healing cross-browser tests. You’ll spend less time creating, editing, and updating UI tests and more time innovating in your app.
Testim is free for startups with under 20 employees. There’s also a baseline freemium tier for all users that includes 1,000 test runs per month. From Autodesk to Zayo, companies large and small trust Testim for fast authoring of stable tests.
Last week, I had you find the longest common prefix in an array of strings. Awesome job Gabor, Will, Shannon, Akhil, Topher, Taylor, Andrew, Les, Thomas, Mike, Alex, Harsh, Sreetam, Chris, Jesper, Leyan, Ten, Ann, Claude, Bashu, Ben, Deepak, David, Daniel, Dhaval, Dan, Daniel, Micah, and Chris!
This week’s question:
Given two non-negative integers
n2 represented as strings, return the product of
n2, also represented as a string. Twist: You can’t use any built-in language integer libraries nor convert the inputs to integers directly.
$ stringProduct("123", "456") $ "56088"
What do you call an English teacher who knows how to code?
That’s all for now, folks! Have a great week. Be safe, make good choices, and don’t forget your mask at home!
