Any interest in a crustacean private leaderboard?
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.
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.
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.
Please add gustafe on Github!
yumaikas on github. I’d love to join.
Count me in. trevmex on GitHub.
The github web interface doesn’t seem to have a ‘request to join’ button. I think you have to add people manually.
JKowalsky on Github as well, I’d love to join as well!
NattyNarwhal, not sure if I’ll do it, but I’d definitely consider it.
Would you mind adding bpollack?
Cool. I’ll add my Haskell solutions :)
(Or at least I will if you add PhilArmstrong to the project :) )
I’d love to join! My username is Vaelatern.
I’ve invited you!
And I’ve contributed my clojure solutions!
I’d be up for it!
Post your ‘join code’?
Will do asap!
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”?
Relevant (for Elm instead of JS, but the point stands): http://martin.janiczek.cz/clanek/being-clever-antipattern-in-elm/
