The 2018 Advent of Code competition is starting soon. Advent of Code is a code advent calendar. Each day unlocks a new programming challenge. You score points by completing the challenges quickly.
I’ve created a lobsters leaderboard for this year that you can join with code 224033-122b1da6. To see it you need to create an account, login, then go to the leaderboard page and enter the code for the private leaderboard.
Advent of code is a great way to learn a new programming language. It’s also a nice way to get a daily warmup programming exercise through the month of December. If you’d like to chat about the code challenges we’ve created the #lobsters-advent IRC channel on freenode to chat about it with other lobsters users. You can also chat about it in the main #lobsters channel on freenode (see chat for more).
