    I’ve had lots of fun with the synacor challenge. You get a binary file and the description of the architecture of a machine which could execute it, and start by writing a vm to run the file. Can’t recommend it enough :-)

      Tempted to do something similar with Shake. I wonder if it could be easier to test. Probably would be more verbose though.

        Shake already supports change detection by hashing the content, see ChangeDigest and ChangeModtimeAndDigest here

        It also supports the concept of a remote cache, at least in the form of a shared directory.

        Or am I misunderstanding what you mean…? :-)

          Thank you, good to hear that Shake seems to support the strategy of the article well. I feel like it could be be more robust if written with Shake, this is why I wondered.
