Our pointillistic pals over at O’Reilly Labs are still trying to come up with cool things to do with the data in their XQuery database of all O’Reilly Books content. The latest offering is Code Quiz. To play, you’re presented with a code snippet from a book and a list of four possible O’Reilly titles. You get up to 10 points for each correct answer, but the values decrease to 1 possible point if your guess takes more than 10 seconds. Incorrect answers subtract the remaining points from your total score. It’s a fun way to test your casual knowledge of code and O’Reilly titles.
