For each of the past two years, I’ve been working on year-long projects and writing about them here. In 2017, the topic was designing and coding a time-tracking app. This year, my project was a competitive programming FAQ. Like most FAQs, it’s a work in progress, but it now contains a set of popular questions, and is set up for me to add more.
In the process of creating the FAQ, I learned a few things about how Quora and Google work, wrote some research tools, experimented with MediaWiki, classified a lot of Quora questions, tried to merge some of those Quora questions (and had many of them unmerged by the Quora Content Review bot), and even wrote a few FAQ answers.
