The Ultimate Homework Completer (Conceptual name)
After getting a software development job and having to go through the training exercises (no regrets on that, I actually needed as I had never worked with C# before), I came to the conclusion that there must be hundreds, if not thousands of people in the same situation as me, who'd like to "speed up" the process.
While I do not encourage using something like that for cheating (kids, education is good for you), I do believe it could be used as a useful learning material, especially when you're stuck on a typical LINQ one-liner or something similar, which you know you shouldn't be stuck on.
Anyway, straight to the point. Recently I've come up with this idea that I started working on today. What it is, is basically an enormous library, filled with various more and less common short exercises, which could by some be considered as "homework". The project will probably take a while to come out (as at the moment I'm working on it alone), but when it does, I believe it should be capable of helping out quite a few junior developers or university students.
Obviously, the application will be completely free of charge and open source. What do you think - is it an idea, worthy of a time investment? Any tips/hints/comments?
I will keep the thread updated, with progress reports, screenshots, etc.
PS.: As I'll be focusing on .net languages at the moment, anyone with knowledge of other languages who'd like to lend me a hand is more than welcome to PM me.

I suggest you contribute to rosettacode.org as your time allows. Or at least review the site to find how your project focus differs from what's available.
[/code] are essential for python code and Makefiles!
