    My solutions to the Advent of Code challenges (by djotaku)

    Each one has certain problems they excel at or solve a little more easily. For example, perhaps there's some extended Python library I don't know about, but for this problem (https://adventofcode.com/2015/day/10) compare this solution https://github.com/djotaku/adventofcode/blob/main/2015/Day_10/Python/part_1.py to the Ruby solution: https://github.com/djotaku/adventofcode/blob/main/2015/Day_10/Ruby/part_1.rb The Ruby one is so much easier and cleaner. For this one (https://adventofcode.com/2015/day/7) Python decorators made the code a little cleaner and less indirect: Python (https://github.com/djotaku/adventofcode/blob/main/2015/Day_07/Python/part_1_memoization.py) Ruby (https://github.com/djotaku/adventofcode/blob/main/2015/Day_07/Ruby/part_1.rb)

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Slim

    Slim is a template language whose goal is to reduce the syntax to the essential parts without becoming cryptic. (by slim-template)

    I find that really odd, given the absolute best templating experience I've ever had comes from slim, which is an indent-based ruby experience, as an evolution of haml, which was originally pitched as the html equivalent to the indent-based sass syntax.

  • Haml

    HTML Abstraction Markup Language - A Markup Haiku
