I would like to solve the coding challenge and get the first month of the specialization free. However, I could not figure out which challenge I am supposed to do after visiting the IBM Coder site and how exactly the link between the coursera platform and IBM Coder works once I complete the challenge. Could someone help me and provide more details?

Just a small thing, but would you mind posting the webinar links as clickable links? Rather than a URL people need to copy and paste. Us mathematicians are lazy 😋
