Hey ShiftSyncers,

Quick one: Anyone doing Advent of Code by Eric Wastl?


For those who might be unfamiliar, Advent of Code is an annual coding event that involves solving a series of programming puzzles throughout December, each becoming progressively more challenging.


For those already diving into the Advent of Code, I wish you the best of luck! Feel free to keep us posted on your progress, share interesting puzzles, or ask for help if needed.

I think I’ll give it a go. I’m really junior when it comes to programming, but I think this will be an interesting opportunity to both practice and learn new things on the go :) 


Thanks for the share.

Yup, Advent of Code is a great way to spend the Christmas time. :) Just out of interest, what language do you use for solving the puzzles? This year I went with Golang to try something new (I have started learning it in 2023).

This is my first time participating so I’m quite excited. As for the language, I was hesitant whether I should go with Python or JavaScript, but I went with JS since I’m learning how to write automated tests in Cypress and it only supports JS. I think it will be a good way to practice/learn it.
