In this episode of the hit reality series Scaled It!, three new contestants compete by taking on classic programming challenge problems. These beginners will put their Python skills to the test as they attempt to build scalable code within the allotted time limit. Our expert judges then reveal the approaches the participants should have taken including: vectorization, memoization, and simplifying the problem with mathematical logic rather than attacking with brute force. Will the contestants “scale it” or “snail it”? Tune in to find out.
