Greetings from the moderation team! Here is the June Edition of the much awaited newsletter. As usual, it encapsulates the best of Brilliant over the past month. From the best posts to the most active members, it has it all.
New Features to be Excited About:
Your performance at Brilliant can now get you a job in a leading company. Doesn’t sound credible? Then read this.
Did you ever feel that your solution isn’t the best way out? Or maybe wished that some mentor reviewed it? Brilliant has heard it all. You can submit a request to have your solution reviewed by Challenge Masters!
- Guess what? Notifications just got better. In case of a new,unread notification you would now have a star on the tab on which Brilliant is open. So now, you need not switch between tabs just to check for notifications.
Over the past month the feed was flooded with a large number of problems across all topics and levels. This is not something new to the Brilliant community, but the strength of the flux is inspiring and motivating as always. Here are a few handpicked problems just in case you found the flow to be strong.
After all that workout here some easier ones. Warning: Neither would they leave you without having them a second thought.
Aren't they the same thing?, Isn't it equal to 1?, Can you boil this water?, Triangle-ception and Do you know your basics - VIII.
New and Active Members
The ever-expanding community yet again witnessed incorporation of some new individuals who actively put in efforts and enhanced the experience of the community with their problems, solutions, wikis and comments having actively contributed them over the past four weeks or so. They deserve a word of recognition and the moderation team sincerely appreciates the efforts of Abyoso Hapsoro, Vijay Simha, Ankit Nigam, Dhaman Trivedi, Colin Carmody and Arian Tashakkor and hopes that they continue this active interaction with the community.
