Yes, it's only been a few (intense) months, believe it or not. I did attend some FreeCodeCamp hackathons in the early days -- is that what you mean?

Thank you for the encouragement. You've certainly come a long way, and it's good to be reminded that everyone's a beginner once.

Commenting was already my forte! ;) I think what I need to do now, as you say, is to study other people's solutions, as opposed to pushing through kata and not refining my technique.

At some point I want to create a kata based on 'Is that their real number?' but using number systems from other languages -- it could be a whole series of number translations.

My favourite is Bukiyip :)

Thank you for your comments, that all makes sense to me now. If you'd told me when I wrote the kata, I might not have understood; I only started learning coding/Javascript in September!

I'll update my test and run it by you, if that's OK?

Thanks again, really appreciate it.

Ah yes good point, cheers :)
I've modified the description. Does that make more sense?

You're still 'in with a chance', right? ;)

Nice one :)

• ###### lucyrose93commented on "Is that a real phone number? (British version)" kata

Approved. Apologies for the delay; I hadn't seen this.

• ###### lucyrose93commented on "Math Issues" kata

I enjoyed the pure logic of this kata :)

Thanks for pointing that out Taequn.
Maybe Py has a more accurate descrpition; I wouldn't know.
But in the JS version the example string "WHERE DO U WANT 2 MEET L8R" is said to equate to 47 button presses. This would mean that digits are equivalent to one button press each. But in the test cases digits require more button presses. You have to make an educated guess about how many they each require, as this isn't specified in the description.

Please clarify the description as others have suggested.

It took me way too long to solve a very simple problem because the task is not articulated clearly.

Thanks.

Thanks for pointing that out! I've now added a test in random test cases :)

Thanks Matt! Good suggestion :)

To quote my description, 'sometimes you will find numbers with dashes in-between digits'. Key word here is 'in-between'.
