Here is our first challenge! This challenge should be doable even for beginners. But also advanced developers can train their brains on this – in my opinion – fun task!
Robot will take a text document with an article (or section of book or speech, anything) and modifies it with help of Thesaurus by replacing words with synonyms, keeping the meaning same but changing the words.
Use any thesaurus you like: You can use just typing to Google “thesaurus word” to get synonyms, or thesaurus.com, similar websites or even use the Microsoft Word thesaurus.
Think about how your robot will work. This is a great challenge to practice string operations. Some words may not have a synonym. Let’s see how your robot will go!
It does not have to be perfect!
Here is a file with sample input texts:
InputTexts.docx (14.7 KB)
When you are happy with your robot:
- post output processed by robot as a post
- send .xaml file as a private message directly to me
First three correct, original solvers earn 3 robopoints, next get 1 robopoint.
I will hold a leaderboard with your score and update it. Those on top positions will be badged by a special challenger badge
Challenge deadline is 21.3. by the end of the day. You can still submit your projects after the deadline but you cannot earn robopoints. New challenge is published every week or 2 weeks so don’t worry if you did not catch this one. Keep in mind, your submitted files may be published after the deadline so others can learn from solutions.
Make sure you set a Watching First Post so you don’t miss every new challenge!
