Nice meeting some of you on Friday. I created a few katas this weekend and was wondering if someone would be able to give me a hand with this one: http://www.codewars.com/kata/5545f847bd94d050be00011d
At the moment, the kata accepts "words" like "what makes the", "e des", "i" or even "," and I want to edit it so it only accepts full words. Any help with this would be hugely appreciated! Thanks!

@karbasa @naazy @nick6m @natoucs I know this will seem a bit silly as we have just opened this group up, but we are moving communications over to https://gitter.im/codingforeveryone
See you all over there.

@sofer is there a particular part of https://gitter.im/codingforeveryone we're supposed to be communicating in?

@naazy - I've tried your kata but I don't quite understand what this means " For decimal numbers, return true only if the number is equal to its integer part and the integer part is odd." - I've passed most of the test but failing at ones such as -1.629 (absolute number is 1.629 - rounded to floor is 1 so it's odd? or -155.2? Not sure where my thinking went wrong...
Naaz
@naazy
@ijelonek you're right that is confusing! I'm not even sure what I meant 😕
(It doesn't make a lot of sense!)
Naaz
@naazy
I have changed it to what I think makes sense!
ijelonek
@ijelonek
Thanks @naazy - I cracked it now, although now it seemed too easy as there was no need to worry about the decimals :) that's a good beginner kata though :)

Hey @/all, anyone out there want to collaborate to create a new kata?

@nancychu
Hey All! Aubrey here from Canada! I'm chugging through all the prereqs now for an application for November (My ultimate dream is to work as a developer in London). Can't wait to churn our some katas and collaborate with some of you!
Peter Rhodes
@RhodesPeter
Hey @nancychu! Welcome to the group.
Let me know on here if you need any help with your application/codewars etc.
This group isn’t very active so check out some of the other coding for everyone groups too.
Aubrey
@nancychu
Thanks @RhodesPeter! :smile: I'll say my hellos in the other rooms as well.

Hello everyone! Yikes, I have just discovered this whole thing, and not sure if I'll be able to meet all the prerequisites in time for the next intake... Anyone have any great learning advice I would love to hear it! I'm just finishing up code-academy, and moving into code-wars now. Hopefully see some of you in person at a meet-up! :sparkles:

@Jbarget
@StephanieMcLeod if you’ve already rolled through code academy you’ve got loads of time! Codewards took a bit of time to get used to for me, so dont be be disheartened if you feel the same. My one tip: Google is your best friend! (pretty much all the answers you’ll need would be out there)
Peter Rhodes
@RhodesPeter
Hey @StephanieMcLeod. I have lots of advice for you. There are a series of kata which all have Grasshopper in the title, these are a good place to start as they are quite easy (the easiest I found). The debug ones are quite simple too so search for those ones. When it comes to the debugging Kata this website is a great help: http://jshint.com/ - It helps you to debug by telling you what syntax errors there are in the code. I am currently level 5 but when I started any/all katas looked impossible but really they are not, you can do it!
Steph McLeod
@StephanieMcLeod
Thanks @Jbarget and @RhodesPeter !! Great tips. Back to work...

@StephanieMcLeod
Thanks @RhodesPeter , I just came back to this comment, great advice! It took me a while to get my head around Javascript, nice to have some more manageable kata to start off with.
Peter Rhodes
@RhodesPeter
@StephanieMcLeod No problem.
The first kata I made was pretty easy too, its just a simple debug —>

Hi everyone. I wanted to check if my github repo is in the correct format for submitting for the application for this month.
Is this correct for "The URL of your GitHub Pages website repo" section?
And how is it different from this section "The URL of your GitHub pages website "?
