I hope you have had a great week! I'm off traveling for work right now, and am NOT used to the new timezone. Oh well. Onwards!

Something that interested me this week
This week was a busy one, I worked on finalizing a bunch of new curriculum for this Spring's workshops at my job (you should bring us in to train your team!), and worked a lot on a project I've been wanting to build for Kickstarter's Make 100!
Between these two things, I've been pretty dang swamped. I'm really excited though that both the new curriculum and my first Kickstarter project (...I'll tell you more about it next issue, but feel free to join my Patreon's Discord if you want the insider scoop before then) are going to be going live this week, and I can finally breathe a bit!
Interview question of the week
Last week I had you implement array.filter() by hand. Good job Ten, Tan, Garth, Lionel, Will, Mark, Stephen, Louis, Angel, Jeremy, Pierre, David, Jesse, Andrew, Moises, Leslie, Pascal, and Julian!
This week's question:
Given a number n, find the sum of all n-digit palindromes.
