Linux Showdown 8

Source: TrueAbility

I’ve always had fun competing in the Linux Showdown’s at TrueAbility. It is time for this year’s Linux Showdown, beginning on March 16, 2015! I really recommend this linux showdown if you have any interest in linux at all. First, there is the simple benefit of being able to compete, to see how your linux skills stack up, against everyone else’s (who doesn’t like some friendly competition every once in a while), and secondly, TrueAbility can and will get you a linux related job, if you are on the market.

It will challenge your linux ability, to determine where you stand among every other linux user in the world. So, if you’re up for a challenge, or up to learning more about linux, I definitely recommend that you check out the TrueAbility Linux Showdown #8, and make sure you sign up for the competition that begins on March 16, 2015!

From TrueAbility’s website:

The Challenge

Round One

Begins March 16th

For this challenge, you’re going to be using your scripting skills to implement a “sub par assembler” dubbed:  spasm

Instead of using memory, we’re going to use the filesystem to store and manipulate our data. Your task will be to create a program (in the language of your choice) called /usr/local/bin/spasm  that can handle some basic operations.

Those of you in the top 50 will be invited to the next round, the rest are.. 0xDEADBEEF. Round 2 we make things a little more advanced… so save your script!

Round Two

Begins April 1st

Welcome to the next phase of  spasm  development! You gained an invite to this round by successfully completing the last challenge, and hopefully you saved a copy of it because we’re going to add some functionality to it in this round.
