This week, I gave my first in-person talk since the start of the pandemic! It was at a meetup in Chicago, and I’ve been feeling all warm and fuzzy about it ever since.
I don’t think I realized how much I missed having an audience in person that reacts to what you’re saying, being able to adjust when they look confused or nod along, and chatting with them afterwards more deeply. I reused and combined a couple of older talks (here and here) and I just had so much fun.

Last week, I had you find the longest word that was the subsequence of a set. This one was sneakily tricky! Great work Andrew, Robin, Les, Jack, Will, Wayne, Charles, Ten, Leyan, Saad, Ben, Becker, Amine, Miguel, Andros, Zoé, Augustin, Olumide, Don, Divyansh, Hristiyan, Nicole, and Patricio!
This week’s question:
The game Rummikub has 106 tiles: 8 sets numbered 1-13, colored red, blue, black, and yellow, and two (2) “wildcard” tiles.
Write two functions: one that creates a new player’s tray of 14 tiles (repetitions allowed), and one that returns the valid sets from a given tray. A set can be either 3 or 4 tiles of the same number (but all different colors), or it can be a “run” (which is three or more consecutive numbers all in the same color). The rules for Rummikub are here if you need more clarification!
I really love how the Earth rotates on its axis.
It really makes my day!
That’s all for now, folks! Have a great week. Be safe, make good choices, and reach out to the ones you care about!
