Feb 2019 - Fresher's Challenge
Participants : First Years - Even Semester, 2022 Batch
Follow the below tasks and submit an ISSUE in this repository so that we can check your progress among all the people.
You are not allowed to use GUI-based navigation/operations like Editing, Unzipping, etc., but are excepted to find out a solution with your coding and commanding skills - you are accountable to show us
proof of work, by creating your own repository named
tasks-amfosswhich will contain whatever work you do for the test. Push all your codes and screenshots to that repository. For avoiding malpractice, make your repository as private so that no one can take your code. Make it public before you submit.
Plagiarism will not be entertained - You are allowed to refer to any online portal, tutorials, forum-answers etc. but copying your code from your friends (or as such from any online source) is strictly forbidden.
Note that Individuals can be disqualified from the test at the organizers' discretion. Reasons might include but are not limited to breaking the competition rules, or other unsporting behaviors.
Since you have made it here, we thought you would be interested in them.
PAUSE: I know you have already starred this repository, but why don't you fork it too. I think you know about the fork. If not, please see the top right side and click on the fork button and select the user. That's it! You are awesome. You just forked a repository. Keep on going.👍
Vipin Pavithran, the founder and chief mentor of the club, as well as others in the club, are excited to welcome you onboard! Why don't you write us an email addressing them all? Check out your email, you must have received a mail under the thread name,

Oswald and Weenie want their picture to be hanged on the wall, but their foolish photographer he gave them a manipulated image. Can you help them to fix it? Btw, they also wanted it to be a Grayscale image. So, get started and earn some Good Karma. :)
You will get the picture by running this below command.

Last night, someone from DPRK had sneaked into our system and manipulated all of your emails in our records. We are unsure of the mistakes that might have crept in and we want you guys to fix them for us. We host our records right here in this repository, in a markdown file in this repository. Go ahead and correct your email. Create a branch named
#2-<email>-fixand send a PR. Remember to have a meaningful commit message, ofc
We know that you all love Problem Solving, and we have planned a special contest for you! Are you ready? Oops, we have a slight problem! We have lost the link generated in the morning and we have contacted the Police to find it. Maybe you should try too (You guys are problem-solvers after all). Until then, you can proceed to solve the below challenges
Did you try to open the
hahahahafile yet? It was left by the DPRK attacker last night, maybe it contains Kim's nuke or some chocolates for you. Who doesn't like chocolates?
Write a bash script which does the whole thing, in the end.
file agives you the details about the file a
touch awill create new file a
rmdir adeletes directory a
mv a btransfers the contents of file a to b
chgrpchanges the group ownership of files For more, you can refer at CLI Commands
Now comes the most interesting task of all. Wait, before starting I want to ask if you got the SECRET_MESSAGE.
The task is simple, host a small website on GitHub pages saying that SECRET_MESSAGE is "###" in a Level 3 Header. You can use README or HTML. We don't bother about design but who doesn't like good websites
We hope you all have a blog. You can write a blog post on your overall experience and how did you solve the tasks. Remember this is also a task but will be evaluated later. You can share the links in the Telegram group along with your status updates at the end of the day.
You can update it later in the ISSUE submission.
Reference: You can have a look at some of the previous blog posts of the club members like https://kalidindiamitraja.wordpress.com/2018/10/25/sending-email-with-python/https://anandinblog.wordpress.com/2018/09/10/dual-booting-ubuntu-with-windows/
Once you are done with the 7 tasks above, you are required to submit all your work which includes your code (or maybe even screenshots) so that we can verify that you completed the tasks. To do that, you must raise an issue in the repository and fill the template.
Here are some more rules (we know you are pro's, just be sure of these) -
- 1.Every individual should submit an ISSUE and fill that template so that we can evaluate the test.
- 2.The ISSUE TEMPLATE must be strictly followed. A submission without following the template will be considered asINVALID and hence will not be evaluated.
- 3.Only a single issue has to be made for each individual, multiple submissions will not be considered.
