@magthe Regarding the Advent of Code repo – I'm really bad at git... Is it possible to keep a private .gitignore around for my project without making changes to the one in the root of the repo?
(I want to ignore the .stack-work folder)
@ocramz I don't get the point of that poster... I guess you could use it as a route for learning but yes, it seems very Haskell oriented. And I think people have very different needs so it's not really that kind of straight progression
Like, someone trying to solve a certain problem might have to start with "high performance" much earlier, and might never have to learn co-data or whatever
I'm not sure... reading your solutions makes me think that it would be quite interesting to just sit down and discuss how we arrived at our solutions, there's som underlying view on the problem that manifests itself in the code, but the view is not always discernible
in this case I needed to map a fold over a list, but the base case for each fold was given by the earlier one... it took a while to just get to that point... then a while longer to remember the mapAccumX-functions
I love the Arrow-stuff... so amazingly impenetrable, haha
@ocramz What's the rationale for C++ over C? Some (many?) prefer to write their application in some higher level language like Python and dish out the algos to C. I don't know C++, but it seems to me that C++'s strengths would come into play for larger scale applications and/or frameworks.
