The 2019 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 224033-6a270b9d. To see it you need to create an account on the advent of code website, 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).
