My question is related to this one.

Are questions/challenges explicitly targeting non-standard computing platforms such as FPGAs allowed?

If yes: Are they wanted or welcome here or are they undesired?


1 Answer 1


Yes, they are allowed, and welcome if interesting

Some examples:

  • Tetris in Conway's Game of Life, one of our most well-received challenges, requires programming in Conway's Game of Life, which is certainly not a standard computing platform.
  • Automate saving the world (as Nathan mentioned in a comment) requires the use of old (pre-1978) languages.
