# Data Structure category?

I just want to ask when will Data Structure category come back? Or if it has been closed forever?

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Hi all,

The short answer: we are not sure when it will be back, but are still interested in having more computer science problems. Hence I cannot say that it is gone forever. There is clearly a strong desire among the people who use Brilliant for us to continue offering computer science questions. Hang in there.

Good news!

i dont know any language except c++ so i was only able to do the common sense ones

- 6 years, 6 months ago

i hope it comes back with c++

Actually, i dont think that programming language is the problem here.. I dont use python, but i still can use other prog language to solve problems, since Brilliant requires a numerical solution, not the source code.

yes, but some questions have code and asks you what is the output answer and i dont understand python

It's problematic to try to keep it language-neutral IMO; why use Python and not any other language??

What they could do: Each week, develop three problems not based on a certain language (like number-theoretic computational problems, for example); also, develop one problem for each major language (like Python, Java, C++, etc.) Then, allow each user to choose which language to use each week. This would fix the issue without adding too much work.

Python is the easiest to understand. Furthermore, for the problems that require coding, you can do it any language you wish. And in the problems where code is given, it is extremely simple to understand; almost pseudo-code.

I hope it "Come Back"..

It is complicated because I do not know anything about Data Structure category

- 6 years, 6 months ago

It was mentioned earlier that it will be back.

- 6 years, 6 months ago

It was a good category, it helps me to study computer science in schools...

it has been closed forever....... i think im not sure just a guess

- 6 years, 6 months ago

It has been closed awhile...but awhile is not forever.
