Advent of Code 2017

Dec 05, 2017

This is my first year participating in the annual Advent of Code event. I've decided to do something more interesting than simply hacking away at the problems in Ruby or Python every night. To the best of my ability I'm going to write a solution to each day's problem in a different programming language.

The intention is to force myself to get a small taste of a bunch of new programming languages and programming paradigms. Since I was late to the party I rushed through the first 4 problems in languages I'm familiar with. But for day 5 I solved the daily problem with MIPS assembly. I look forward to learning and writing Common Lisp, Haskell, Prolog, and many more languages.

One hope I have is to complete a problem in GLSL. I'm already somewhat familiar with GLSL, but given its intended purpose it should be a true feat if it works.

You can see my Advent of Code solutions on my GitHub repository here.
