sure, that is easy: we are submitting ourselves to torture and punishment in 2 different, yet related, ways...
- first, we try to write the programs that are assigned to us in the "Cattle Drive".
- second, we allow ourselves to be completely humiliated by the "Nitpickers" when we submit our code to them... then they fill it with terrible comments about how our programming style is horrible, nothing short of dispicable... and for some reason we rewrite the code, and send it to the nitpickers again!
actually, this is really fun and it is extremely helpful if you are want to learn how to make your java programs more readable, efficient and bullet-proof.
