This was a relatively quiet week. It was mostly getting Christmas shopping wrapped up, keeping up with any last few projects at work before Christmas, and taking care of some things around the house.
I did start doing Advent of Code as a fun exercise each day. I decided to try it in Swift instead of C# since I wanted to use it as an excuse to use more of the language. So far, it’s working. I’m using some things in Swift (or the Foundation library) that I’ve never needed. I don’t know if I’ll complete every day or not. Some are taking longer than I wanted, so we’ll see, but if I can make the time, I’m going to do my best to at least complete the first challenge each day (there is an initial problem, then a more complicated one as part 2 of each day).
Otherwise, I expect this to be another more or less quiet week. Everything is starting to slow down due to the holidays and everyone’s associated vacation time. With any luck, it’ll be a pretty uneventful remainder of the year.
