December means Advent of Code (AoC)! This year with prizes!

 

I will let the creator of AoC introduce it himself:

Quote

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.

 

Like last year, there is now a Discord channel (#advent-of-code under Events) on the main Discord for discussing the problems in AoC, and GFL will also have a private leaderboard.  Once you are logged into AoC, you can join the leaderboard with the following code: 103534-dd0879f0

 

To spice things up this year, there will be prizes for the top 2 on our private leaderboard on December 26th at midnight Eastern Time.

  • 1st place: 1 month of VIP
  • 2nd place: 1 month of Supporter

 

A lot of people are quite quick to share solutions, but that's no fun! Please do not copy other's solutions; we are here to learn. :) If you are stuck, then you can start by asking others in the Discord channel or perhaps consult the subreddit, but be careful with spoilers!

 

Looking forward to tackling this year's problems with you all! 😄

Congratulations to @flamie Alexis and @Ancliz for respectively being in 1st and 2nd place! Your rewards will be sorted within a few days.

 

Thanks to everyone who tackled the challenges with us. Let's hope more will want to join next year. Perhaps it should be a mandatory activity for the development team. :lenny:

 

(For reference, I was in #2 place, but I don't count since I am the organizer.)
