Four days in and I have three observations about #AdventOfCode so far.

  1. It’s great fun and a great challenge but can be very time consuming. It’s definitely worth doing with either your primary development language or one you are learning if you want more of a challenge.

  2. It would sometimes be good to have more example data for testing. Today’s tasks have both caught me out because of this.

  3. It gives me some sample code to show to any prospective clients or employers. I can’t share client code and my ability to work on side projects is limited due to real life.
