To make participation in these educational challenges even a bit more interesting, we offer some prizes:
- $1000 will be given to the member who has completed the most of these educational challenges (six in total). In case there are few such members, this prizes will be equality divided among them;
- Additionally, ten prizes, $200 each, will be randomly distributed among all members who have completed any of these educational challenges. During this random draw, your chance to get a prize will be proportional to the number of challenges you have completed, e.g. if we draw between just three competitors who have completed 1, 2, and 3 challenges each, their chances to be drawn will be: 16.7%, 33.0%, 50.0%.
The last thing to mention before the actual challenge scope, is that this challenge is brought to you by the renovated Topcoder Cognitive Community. Please check it and join, if you have not already. It will help us to bring you more cognitive challenges in future!
In this challenge we want you to create a simple app that pulls the latest posts from Topcoder Blog and uses Watson Personality Insights service to learn about personality of their authors.
To get posts from our lovely blog you can GET its RSS feed from
https://www.topcoder.com/blog/feed/, after parsing the XML, say with help of xml2json, you’ll pass their content through the Personality Insights service and display the results to the user. For the purpose of this challenge, it is enough to create a simple NodeJS script, that does the job and outputs the results into a local file.
