We always have fun in this forum around this time of the year, discussing the days’ (or yesterdays’) challenges and talking through solutions. I have an hour or two to spare around midnight nowadays to spend some hammock time, so figured I’d do some Advent of Code warm-up before the event. Looking at Twitter with the hashtag, seems like I’m not alone in this.
Also, see y’all in 32 days on another thread. Can’t wait to learn stuff with you.
Just in case any of you fine folks want to join in this pre-advent-of-code-advent-of-code discussion, let’s do it!

Still remembering advent of code 2 years ago, it was fun
Unfortunately, like last year, I’m super busy and won’t participate
I am using OTP liberally this time. Had real fun solving the wire problems and the bot problem of 2015/7 and 2016/10.
I know I shaved yaks. Also I know I love Elixir.
Now will go on solving 2015/14
Looks like a fairly easy problem for a day 14. But I wonder if I can assign a worker per racer and then plot the state into LiveBook and watch a simulation of the race
It’s been quite the ride this one. Almost there… 2015 seemed to be a bit more difficult than 2020/2021, I saw similar pattern in 2016. I guess Advent of Code used to be a lot harder in the past.
Two hours remaining, those who’re solving Advent of Code with Erlang, or a Beam language can checkout Advent of Code 2022 - Day 1 Discussions - Coding Challenges - Erlang Programming Language Forum - Erlang Forums to discuss.
I’ll be posting my sentiments around here mostly. Day by day basis. (Yes I intend to go 25 days this year!)
Would be really interesting to see someone using a really old programming language like Pascal or Fortran.
I wanted to use Ada earlier. Maybe I’ll give it a shot. Though Ada isn’t Pascal old, I guess.
