The reddit thread is good reading:

I like to do such program / script in the languages I am learning.
For example in Scala:

This one is well made; one of the challenges is to avoid to use a feature before it is
introduced properly. :-)
I did that with my Lpeg chapter in the French Lua book or my regex tutorial: I was always
annoyed when the writer of a tutorial casually used a feature, then explained it later.
I try also to use near-real life examples: matching something in aaabbbcbbba is boring... ;-)
