Challenge Description

Congrats, you just landed your dream job! You're officially a software engineer at the Daily D'eel, a big time deals site that sells aquariums and other fish supplies. Each day the company announces and sells a new item at a discount. It usually takes a few days to sell out of each item, but they always do sooner or later!

You're a fish enthusiast and have a big aquarium at home. You've been buying things from the Daily D'eel for years and were super excited when you heard they were hiring hackers. You landed the job and started just a few days ago.

This morning, a member of the customer service team, Samuel Enderby, reported a bug and you took on the responsibility of investigating and fixing it. After purchasing an item on the Daily D'eel, users are invited to leave a review. Each item's page has a feed of the most reviews for shoppers to see. The problem is that new reviews aren't showing up in the feed for some reason. The customer service rep even tested it himself to make sure it was broken.

See if you can figure out how the feed works and find the missing review from "Samuel Enderby"!
