Easy Coding Challenges

· One min read

I'm often asked to recommend some easy Coding Challenges for junior developers.

It's not easy to suggest easy coding challenges as what is easy for a backend developer might be a challenge for a frontend developer. The same applies for an systems developer versus a data scientist or data engineer.

  1. Write Your Own wc Tool
  2. Write Your Own URL Shortener
  3. Write Your Own cut Tool
  4. Write Your Own Traceroute
  5. Write Your Own Rate Limiter
