Coding Katas

A Coding Kata is a programming exercise that you can perform to build and maintain your coding skills. Probably you already know "Hello World", the simplest Kata possible.

Here are a few places to find them:

Conclusions

You can repeat Coding Katas once in a while. Try different languages, programming paradigms or automated tests to crank up the difficulty. Like running in sports, I consider doing Coding Katas a basic exercise to improve and to maintain your fitness as a programmer.

I wish you good coding.
