Example based code quiz from O’Reilly Labs

O’Reilly labs have created a quick, but addictive code quiz that tests programmer’s knowledge based on him being able to look at code example and figure out which book it might have come from.

I run through it in one breath and did not do too badly (280 points). I mostly had troubles with VB/ASP (no surprise), but also with some examples that were ambiguous.

O’Reilly is going to do some serious data mining from the game results, but I wish they would also provide the dataset to the public, obfuscated or otherwise. It would be interesting to play with it, a la Netflix Prize. And/or they could allow the results to be embeddable in the page for the brag value.
