Task #1

Write a script to calculate the value of e, also known as Euler’s number and Napier’s constant. Please checkout wiki page for more information.

Task #2

Write a script for URL normalization based on rfc3986. This task was shared by Anonymous Contributor.

According to Wikipedia, URL normalization is the process by which URLs are modified and standardized in a consistent manner. The goal of the normalization process is to transform a URL into a normalized URL so it is possible to determine if two syntactically different URLs may be equivalent.

Task #3

Write a script to use BC Gov News API. For more information about API, please visit page. The API task is optional but we would love to see your solution.

Last date to submit the solution 23:59 (UK Time) Sunday 18th August 2019.


If you have any suggestions or ideas then please do share with us.
