Advent Calendar for Developers

Advent Calendar for Developers

It's that time of the year when every big company creates an advent calendar. If you're not familiar with what advent calendars are, they are a set of presents that you can buy from different vendors (candy, perfumes, etc) and open one present each day from December 1st to December 24th. It seems cool, but what does it have to do with programming? Well, now we have an Advent for devs called Advent of Code 2023.

What is Advent of Code?

Advent of Code is an Advent Calendar of small programming problems that you can solve in any programming language you know or like and that will test a variety of skills. Think of this as a different way of solving coding challenges other than LeetCode problems. The fun part is that the challenges start out easy and increase in difficulty each day, providing a fun and engaging way for participants to test their coding skills.

This year, a new policy has been introduced: participants are asked not to use AI to get on the global leaderboard. It's an interesting approach and I guess we'll just have to see if everyone will abide by this new rule, but in my opinion, I think you should do your best without any AI help, even if you struggle, the whole point of this is to test out your programming skills and maybe make an overview over your current knowledge.

Do you think you are up for the challenge? Go to and start the challenge.

Have fun and Happy Coding!
