I’m working the problems in Elixir as well: https://github.com/JEG2/advent_of_code_2018

I started as well with elixir, but this year it is only my secondary language, primary is rust, I might need it for my job next year.

Its a bit sad though, that I can’t find todays livestream on twitch… @josevalim’s last activity seems to be from a week ago :frowning:

I’m doing it too. Much fun.

It’s also fun watching @josevalim’s videos after.

I have up to Day 3 so far and will add Day 4 later on:

This is my first year solving the Advent of Code puzzles.

I usually solve the puzzle first thing in the morning for the previous day, so in the afternoon I can watch José’s approach on his Twitch channel.

Even though I didn’t plan on doing AoC this year, after solving one task I got hooked :slight_smile:
Based on the experience from the past year, I decided to consolidate my solutions into a single mix project. This allowed me to extract some common helper (e.g. Enum helpers), which helped me clean up the code of the actual solutions, and make it a bit more expressive (e.g. see my take on day 1)

Similarily, I am also solving the AoC this year - github. Probably won’t finish again (last year I gave up after a few days :sweat_smile:) but maybe my solutions will be of interest to someone.

I’m solving the AoC exercised in Elixir for the second year. I planned on using Rust, but Elixir is much more fun to write :slight_smile:

I have solved both challenges of Day 1 and Day 2 so far … in Haskell. If (and only if…) I can find the time, I’ll try to do more challenges, as well as solve part or all of them using Elixir and Rust as well :slight_smile: .

My solutions (11 so far) can be found here https://github.com/mkasztelnik/elixir-adventofcode-2018. Some of the solutions are not optimal, but I’m just learning elixir.
