Advent of Code
« on: December 08, 2019, 05:41 AM »
I realize it is perhaps a bit late to post this, but I thought some of the programmers on here might still get some fun out of it this year. From the about page:

Advent of Code is an Advent calendar of small programming puzzles for a variety of skill sets and skill levels that can be solved in any programming language you like. People use them as a speed contest, interview prep, company training, university coursework, practice problems, or to challenge each other.

You don't need a computer science background to participate - just a little programming knowledge and some problem solving skills will get you pretty far. Nor do you need a fancy computer; every problem has a solution that completes in at most 15 seconds on ten-year-old hardware.

Personally, I am using it as a way to try out the Rust programming language this year :Thmbsup:.
