    Any interest in a crustacean private leaderboard?

    1. 9

      I guess competition is healthy, but I have an additional suggestion: crustacean private help board: I don’t know how we’d do it, one big “ask” story/thread would be difficult, we could set up a github project for it and have questions as “issues” perhaps? We could have a wiki on it too.

      EDIT:

      Also, the idea of a lobste.rs joint github additionally appeals to me because I know we all dabble in various esoteric languages and we could have a “rosetta code” type of project where we solve the problems in different languages, and it would be fun to compare these solutions across languages.

      EDIT:

      In case anyone thinks its a good idea … please join up

        Sounds like fun to me, I’m azdle on github too if you’re adding people.

        I agree with @gerikson about not having a daily thread and I think one monster thread would quickly get unwieldy. I created a #lobsters-advent on freenode that we can for discussion.

          The AoC subreddit is a good place to look for help and tips.

          I don’t like the idea of “polluting” Lobsters with a daily question thread.

          I love the idea of a shared code repo.

                  The github web interface doesn’t seem to have a ‘request to join’ button. I think you have to add people manually.

                                This is one of those cases where “clever” is used as a synonym for “obfuscated.” Or am I missing something RE: modern js best practices, as hinted by the line “…we strive here to avoid creating new functions”?
