I hope your week was a good one! We had a bunch of snow here in Chicago, but it’s slowly starting to warm up a bit. Let’s get going!

I started to get back on my content game more this week! I published this article on being unique vs. being familiar when building products, recorded some podcast episodes (check out the Stack Overflow Podcast if you wanna hear some good ones), and joined a Twitter Space about developer advocacy! I’ve been having a good time covering so many topics that I haven’t touched on in a while. If you have something you’d like to hear from me, go ahead and reply to this email and let me know!

Last week, I had you return the local times of people in a given time zone. Sorry if this brought back bad memories for anyone who has dealt with those inevitable bugs! Awesome job Leyan, Will, Peter, Santiago, Les, Don, and Ten!
This week’s question is brought to you by Elementary!
Implement a word search. Given a 2D array of letters and a word to find, return the 2D array with the found word’s letters replaced with an asterisk (
*). If you can’t find a word, just return the 2D array or “not found”.
let grid = [['a','a','q','t'], ['x','c','w','e'], ['r','l','e','p']] $ findWord(grid, 'ace') $ [['*','a','q','t'], ['x','*','w','e'], ['r','l','*','p']]
Now! What do we want?
Time traveler jokes. When do we want them?
That’s all for now, folks! Have a great week. Be safe, make good choices, and follow your dreams!
