Get better at programming through fun, rewarding coding exercises that test your understanding of concepts with Exercism.
Convert a octal number, represented as a string (e.g. '1735263'), to its decimal equivalent using first principles (i.e. no, you may not use built-in or external libraries to accomplish the conversion).
Create an implementation of the atbash cipher, an ancient encryption system created in the Middle East.
Convert a number to a string, the content of which depends on the number's factors.
Every language has its own way of doing things. MIPS Assembly is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a MIPS Assembly developer and how to write idiomatic code in MIPS Assembly. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in MIPS Assembly - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.Learn more about mentoring
The MIPS Assembly track on Exercism has 15 exercises to help you write better code. Discover new exercises as you progress and get engrossed in learning new concepts and improving the way you currently write.See all MIPS Assembly exercises
