Fizz Buzz

Play the Game

Fizz Buzz is a game used as an aid in teaching children about division.  In addition, writing code to implement an automated version of Fizz Buzz has become a popular test of basic computer programming skills.  Subject matter experts say that if one cannot write a basic Fizz Buzz program in 15 minutes or so, chances are their coding skills are probably somewhat lacking.

Having spent a number of years back in the day as a software developer, I decided to try my hand at writing a Fizz Buzz program.  I actually did get a basic version working in less than an hour in spite of my typos and programming language syntax errors.  It took a bit longer to “beautify” it and make it fit for public consumption.
