I’m collecting as many links for stuff like ziglings and ruby koans as I can find! I am hoping to compile something like an awesome list of them.

I’ve found this repo as a starting point, and collected quite a few, but would love to know about any you’ve come across or worked your way through.

If you know of any for any language would you mind commenting with a link?

    https://exercism.io/ has exercises for 52 different languages.

      Exercism is pretty nice. I created a repository that makes Docker images available for a few of the Exercism languages (C++, Clojure, Java, Ruby, Python, Go), since I wanted to play with a couple of the languages but didn’t want to install all the language dependencies on my local machine: https://github.com/bi1yeu/exercism-docker

        When the ziglings came up on the orange site someone started a list but it seems some of the other repos suggested are more complete, if a bit out of date.

          Thanks for the heads up! This by example includes some things I’d missed!

              Google, of all organizations, made something like this for Common Lisp, of all langauges. https://github.com/google/lisp-koans

                    The Little Schemer and it’s sequels. I also liked a fan-made book “in the style of” that was called something like “A Ltitle Ruby” or “The Little Rubyist” or similsar.

                      I see Clojure in that repo but I have two other links: http://clojurekoans.com/ and http://clojurescriptkoans.com/

                      1. 3

                        There’s also https://www.4clojure.com/

                        1. 2

                          It seems that maybe this list already exists!
