I don't know much or even how I ended up tuning in on it - but of several
of these sorts of initiatives I've heard about, Exercism looks like a good
one.
I haven't put any thought into exercises, but have been thinking about
infrastructure.

Here is some discussion about making a code exporter to be able to use the
command line tool to interact with the server.

I've been looking at how the command line tool communicates with the server
to determine how hard it would be too hard to write a Pharo direct
interface to their server.
I wasn't planning to share my experiments yet, but since it may be a while
before I get a chance to extend it further,
perhaps it interests someone...
