This was my first year doing the cipher challenge . Before the challenge I hadn’t even heard of the word encryption but it was a great opportunity to try something new. Unfortunately, I was too stupid and busy to solve 10b this year but you’re looking at the 2023 cipher challenge’s next winner!
[Love the ambition! See you next year, Harry]
THANK YOU SEE YOU NEXT YEAR 🏻
Hi thank you for the challenges! It’s my first year and it sure is interesting — needless to say I still have no knowledge in coding and programming at all, got up to challenge 9A (minus 8B and 10B, too hard) relying on online tools on the web — can anyone suggest how I can start learning to program (for a dummy and absolute beginner)? Are there lessons online and any apps I can use? Thank you so much!
gfortran is part of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC).
It actually converts to C, then compiles, but you won’t notice the difference.
Dear Harry thank you for a great( and extremely challenging) cipher challenge 2022. See you next year!
P.S Do you know when the leaderboards will be updated?
[Thank you too! Leaderboards will be updated when we are ready to announce the prizes. Not for a while yet! Harry]
