Language Guides are AI-generated guides to CodeCrafters stages. Unlike the official instructions for each stage which are mostly language-agnostic, Language Guides are tailored to your language.
This is a brand new feature that we’re still iterating on. You can find them below the stage instructions for supported challenges. e.g you can find the Language Guide for Redis here.

10th Nov 2023: Initial Release
- Language Guides are now available for all stages & languages
- These are currently very rudimentary, and they’re generated using only two inputs:
- The official instructions for the current stage
- The official instructions for the previous stage
- We’ll improve these over time by feeding in more inputs, like Code Examples & official docs for a language.
11th Nov 2023: Account for next stages
- In addition to the current & previous stage instructions, we now also feed in instructions for the next stages. This helps keep the instructions focused on what’s required for the current stage, and not suggest things that’ll be covered in the next stages anyway.
13th Nov 2023: Language switcher
- You can now switch between languages in the language guide card.
15th Nov 2023: Account for previous stages, documentation links
- Where possible, language guides will now link to official documentation for Rust, Python & Go. Occasionally these links might be invalid, we’ll fix this in a coming update.
- Language guides now account for all the previous stages you’ve done, not just the previous one - so they’re less likely to repeat instructions from previous stages.
24th Nov 2023: Grep guide updates
- Language guides for Grep no longer suggest using the regex utilities available in the standard library
1st Dec 2023: Git guide updates
- Language guides for the Git challenge now mention zlib libraries. Previously this was only handled for Rust/Python/Go, now it’s handled for all languages.
19th Jan 2024: HTTP guide updates
- Language guides for the HTTP server challenge no longer suggest using the http utilities available in the standard library
