How to Program an Elevator

Elevator Saga

I discovered a new site called Elevator Saga while listening to the Stack Overflow Podcast. It’s a great site for testing your javascript skills in a fun way. Essentially, you are given progressively more difficult scenarios and have to program one or more elevators to carry passengers to different floors in a given time limit.

I am going to be working through each of these levels and sharing how I tackle each challenge. By the end, I’m hoping to have a decent working elevator program. If you’re interested in writing your own program, you can find the API documentation here.
