Advent of Code is an Advent calendar of small programming puzzles for a variety of skill sets and skill levels that can be solved in any programming language we like. People use this event as a speed contest, practice problems, or even to challenge each other. It’s made by Eric Wastl and 2018 was the 4th edition.
- → Challenge myself.
- → Discover new things (new language, new problems, etc.)
- → Share with my friends possible solutions and optimizations.

I started out this section without completing the 2018 edition because I wanted to practice my C++. But I move on to something else since then.
To be continued.
I wrote a small article about my experience. You can find it here: blog article
Since it was my first year doing this challenge, I did not try to rush my solutions.
I would rather spend on more day on a problem by thinking about it and come up with a better solution than previously.
Plus me and my friends were more fighting for concise solutions than submission time.
