• Find out more about Python by searching the solutions


Hello CheckiO users!

As you might have noticed, for two weeks we haven’t made our usual newsletter mailouts. But we definitely weren’t wasting any time. CheckiO team was actually preparing some important updates, which we want to share with you.

That’s a common knowledge that CheckiO originated from the idea of practical learning through shared solutions. This means that in our portals you can learn not only by solving the coding tasks, but also by checking out and analyzing the solutions made by other users. In view of this, our next step became a logical continuation of this ideology.

Since the creation of CheckiO, we’ve gathered nearly half a million of different solutions. Now, using the Solution Search feature, which becomes available from the 2nd Level, you can easily find any solution you need. Like you can look for the usage examples of an itertools.groupby function. You just need to enter it into the search field and you’ll see multiple solutions. Or you can type ‘itertools’ and you’ll be presented with all of the solutions where this module had been used. It’s fast, efficient and quite handy. The feature is still in the beta testing mode though.


The thing you have to consider though is that the solution search will be made only through the solutions to those tasks that you’ve already solved yourself. This way you’ll be familiar with the challenges, solutions to which you’ll see in search results. You want to see more cool coding examples? Solve more tasks!

And that’s not all! We’ve decided not to put off such a desirable follow-up of the search feature - bookmarks. At any time, you can come back to the interesting task solutions you’ve found by adding them to your bookmarks. They can always be accessed on the Profile page. Bookmarks are public, so you can go to the Profile page of another user and check out what he or she had added. Also, for your convenience, the Bookmarks page will contain a search bar. So you could go nuts and add as many solutions as you want, since you’ll be able to find the one you need no problem.


We really hope that you’ll be thrilled with these additions as much as we are. We’re already in the process of preparing another significant update related to the user solution analysis. So, stay sharp, follow us and within the next 2 months you’ll be able to see what we’ve been up to.

Thanks to all of you guys for being with us and all your support!
