Get to know about Eric Cheung.

Welcome to the monthly series Meet The Champion.

Last month we spoke to Robert DiCicco, the winner of February 2022.

Today we are talking to Eric Cheung, the winner of March 2022 of The Weekly Challenge. I hope you are going to enjoy the interview.

Mohammad: Tell us about your technical background?

Eric: Well, I use different programming languages to suit to different tasks in my jobs, currently in Hong Kong Observatory, for example HTML, Linux Shell, PHP and etc.

Mohammad: How/When did you get into coding? Have you ever thought of trying Perl?

Eric: My first coding experience started in primary school, using Pascal. Actually I have tried Perl in some of my tasks in jobs, though I use Python more often.

Mohammad: How did you come to know about The Weekly Challenge?

Eric: Actually my friend Cheok-Yin Fung invited me to join The Weekly Challenge

Mohammad: What do you like the most about The Weekly Challenge?

Eric: It helps you to practise coding and enhance your problem solving skills and it does not take you much time to complete tasks.

Mohammad: How much time you dedicate every week to The Weekly Challenge?

Eric: Roughly around 2 to 3 hours for the tasks every week.

Mohammad: Do you checkout others solutions and who is your favorite?

Eric: Sometimes I would checkout the solutions from my friend Cheok-Yin Fung when I have no idea to start with, or I want to have a better solution.

Mohammad: What do you suggest someone just started The Weekly Challenge?

Eric: Keep up to code tasks every week so as to adapt the coding practice.

Mohammad: Anything else you would to like to share with us?

Eric: Hope that I could try to use Perl script more often so that I could share my solution (in Perl) to all of you later.

That brings the end of the conversation with Eric Cheung. Please do let us know your view. We will come back next month with another champion.
