Participating in the Github Noops Challenge

In this post I talk a little about the Github Noops challenge and what I plan to do.

What is the Noops Challenge?

Github have created a number of challenges that encourage you to create something. Each challenge exposes an API with some options that you can customise.

One of the most basic API’s gives you a colour hex code. What you do with that is up to you. On the website they encourage you to experiment with the API’s and use them to try something new.

They called it Noops after the “no op” instruction that exist in many instruction architectures. This instruction would typically be a placeholder to do nothing. Since the API’s do nothing they called them the Noops challenge.

What is my plan?

Every two weeks I plan to blog about a Noop, at least for the current future posts.

I started work on the Hexbot a while ago and have had a look at the Vexbot but will be properly publishing the Hexbot in two weeks time. This will give me time to polish it off.

The full list of challenges are on the Github Noops website.
