Hi Folks,

In case you haven't realised, it'll be Pycon UK in just over a fortnight's time. It's going to be great fun and the more the merrier so don't hesitate to book! (see: http://pyconuk.org)

One of the activities to take place at this year's event will be a London-style code dojo. For that to work we need suggestions for interesting programming problems that take about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to complete. At the start of the dojo I'll present a list to the attendees and we'll vote on which seems to be the most interesting / fun. Obviously, we need a list so please don't hesitate to propose a suggestion. Here's one from me to kick things off:

Roman Numeral Calculator - e.g. XI - III = IIX (Apparently, it's not as easy as you'd think. Parsing / converting between Roman numerals / numeric values apparently has some interesting "weird" rules to take into account). :-)

Looking forward to seeing you all in Coventry (for which you'll need to book a ticket, go on, do it now), :-)
