We so enjoyed playing with our spider kata, last week, that we wanted to carry on with our bug theme.
Now, to make it more interesting, we are adding in rules where the ant's movement is dictated by the colour of the square they enter and the colour of the square is flipped each time the ant enters it.
Simple enough? Well, if that doesn't stretch you then we have an expanded version using more than 2 colours, naming schemes and even using a hexagonal grid.
The Ants Kata is aimed at the competent coder. You can focus your practice on Test Driven Development and Algorithm Design.
Getting set up can be the roadblock to starting a kata. In our screenkatas you can join our Software Craftspeople and let them show you how to set up your repositories for Java, PHP, Python and Typescript. For other languages, check out our guide on GitHub.
