Hello! Today’s problem was pretty straightforward.. I am tied with the amount of problems I finished last year.. Not close to burning out.. I wonder if it is going easy on us this year?
During the first 1 min 30, I was staring at a blank page, waiting for the page to load.
AoC really starts the first time you add
to a namespace
(set! *unchecked-math* :warn-on-boxed) (set! *warn-on-reflection* true)
I like @dos’s solution, which did not separate the input loading from the processing for the solution. It might be faster to type in that way.
This is the first year I'm (seriously) trying to do this. Does it usually get harder day by day?
(Today's puzzle was pretty easy, but if they're going to get difficult I might not have time to see it through.)
I skipped AoC last year because the year before I ended up spending sometimes multiple hours on a single solution. If it gets like that again I'm out, but a bit more challenging than today's would be nice too 🙂
I’ve done them since 2015, finished most but not all of them.. Except last year i bailed very early
Today's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0a5siw85N4&feature=youtu.be I also talk a bit about the different ways that people solved yesterday's puzzle
Let me know if I leave too many comments during the streaming 😅 I have a hard time holding them while excited by the contest.
they definitely get difficult and I was spending hours on problems routinely, but i’m not a fast solver
last year by like day 14 you had implemented a VM for a made up language, and then implemented pong using that language
I'm not a fast solver either, and also I'm doing them in Clojure, which I don't really know, so I'm extra slow.
i know the feeling… i’m trying to go back and do them in Go after I finish in Clojure, and it is … painful (i don’t know Go)
I've learnt a few neat functions from looking at you guys solution so far this year 🙂
In case you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend being well versed in all these base functions, really helps to know what’s possible. https://clojure.org/api/cheatsheet
