Advent of Code 2022

I don't think I've ever done Advent of Code before. (In fact, the only time I've ever even mentioned the season of Avent on this site was all the way back in 2006, when I had a LEGO Advent calendar and did unholy things with the extra pieces.)

Anyway, Eryn asked me if I'd like to do Advent of Code with her and I've been enjoying it quite a bit.

You can choose to tackle each day's puzzle using whatever programming language or tools you'd like. Because I'm a glutton for punishment, or perhaps because I was a sysadmin in a previous life, I started off solving each day's puzzles in zsh. I stuck with it for over a week before giving up and switching to Python. Eryn is using Rust and Jer is using Swift.

I'm putting each day's solutions up on GitHub, in the hober/advent-of-code repo.

Highlights thus far:
