Starting from mid 2017, I suddenly discovered a new found love for programming puzzles. Call it my zen moment or sudden absurdness, but I began to rummage for programming problems. I am generally allergic to competitive coding, because as a KravMaga practitioner, I hate to do anything, but defend myself when somebody is pointing a gun to my head and asking me to do write(or anything for that matter!) code.
I have tons of of problems that I have solved in languages of my choice, depending on my mood at that point of time.
Recently, though a bit too late, I found out a really cool site Advent of Code full of programming riddles. Some of these riddles are really challenging but not unsolvable. Being a great fan of TDD, I am really enjoying solving these. While I have got most of these on my own, for some, I had to Google for few hints. What’s truly amazing is there are guys who have been doing this religiously and getting into a competitive mode of solving them every day. It feels really happy to be reading some of the experiences.
All the code I had been writing were being stashed away in folders on the cloud and it’s only towards the end of the year, I decided to create GitHub repositories for all the code, that I write, starting with the Advent of Code.
I plan to write about certain puzzles in detail, as I solve them more. My repository for Advent of Code is https://github.com/prabhu-durasoft/Advent_Of_Code
