Day 16: Dragon Checksum
Here you can use the solver to see the results calculated by a file input. Upload a file to the solver, press "Solve" and see the results. It may take some time to compute (mostly in later days). Some solvers have visualizations and interactive forms.
NOTICE: Usually the Advent of Code challenge is done by creating your own code. This solver is not a part of the challenge and should only be used for testing (like comparing results with your own code). If you really want to skip coding and get the star, you can use the solver.
What is Advent of Code?
Advent of Code is an annual programming challenge that takes place during the month of December. Created by software developer Eric Wastl, it consists of 25 daily puzzles, each designed to be a fun and engaging programming exercise that can be solved using any programming language. The challenges vary in difficulty and involve a wide range of topics, including data structures, algorithms, cryptography, and game theory. Participants can compete against each other by solving the puzzles as quickly as possible and sharing their solutions on social media or online forums.
Advent of Code is a great way for programmers of all skill levels to improve their coding skills and have fun at the same time. By participating in the challenge, you'll have the opportunity to practice problem-solving, learn new programming concepts, and get creative with your code. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced programmer, there's something for everyone in Advent of Code. So why not give it a try and see how far you can go? Who knows, you might just surprise yourself with what you can accomplish!
