    It actually was on day 19, it's just that puzzle #13 was the 19th puzzle given out [1]. I'm not sure why the numbers didn't come in order last year.

  • It's been 20 days since I started learning rust as my first language. Terrible experience. Should I move forward?

    I find that the "advent of code" project always has some nice challenges and you can access the previous years like https://adventofcode.com/2020. They tend to get complex and/or complicated quickly, but usually the first few are easy enogh, while sill giving you a challenge to learn something new.

  • [Slightly Off-Topic] Asking for Advice on (Rust) Entry-Level Jobs
    1 project | reddit.com/r/rust | 10 Jul 2021
    Hello, everyone! I started learning Rust and Haskell earlier this year; I'm still a beginner, but I'm comfortable with the basics of both languages, at this point. Although I don't have experience with many languages, I can confidently say that I enjoy Rust and Haskell far more than any other language I've tried. Being fairly new to software development, I don't have much to show for my current skill level, but I'll try to give some context. On my GitHub profile, mohamed-abdelnour, I have a small handful of PRs along with my solutions to AoC 2020. Ironically, solving AoC 2020 is how I started leaning both Rust and Haskell (and most of what I know about programming, if I'm honest), so the code I'm sharing now is (hopefully) some of the worst I'll ever write! Other than that, I'm slowly going through Project Euler problems, and I'm almost done with a certain company's secret "programming" challenge (if you know, you know). I don't have any previous work experience in software development nor have I worked on any "real projects" before.
  • What do you think is the best way to learn Rust?

    https://adventofcode.com/2020 gives you well defined, deterministic problems that can be solved in a variety of ways. I'm loving it.

    Functional programming: The best way to really learn functional programming is to learn Haskell and then use it to write a bunch of programs. I recommend https://adventofcode.com as a way to give you a list of challenges to solve with Haskell. Haskell really forces a functional programming mindset so using it gives you a much better understanding of functional programming.
  • [2020 Day 9] Part 2 - What is the most efficient algorithm?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/adventofcode | 26 Jan 2021
    One important thing to note is that all numbers in the input are positive. Since they are all positive it can be solved quite easily in linear time, O(n), and O(1) memory complexity. See algorithm here. I used this algorithm in my Rust solution.

  • [2020, Day 22, Part 2] Is there a way to speed up the state checking?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/adventofcode | 22 Dec 2020
    A solution that will work with very high probability (which I used here) is to store a hashset of hashes, HashSet. E.g you compute a hash for the two queues and see if that hash has already been seen. There is a very, very, small probability of a hash collision, but in practice this works.
