<p> Has everyone seen <a href="http://adventofcode.com/">Advent of Code</a>? </p>

<p> It's a site with a series of programming problems that are being revealed one a day, a la an advent calendar. You can read more about it <a href="http://adventofcode.com/about">here</a>. </p>

<p> I came to the party a little late so I'm only up to day 6. </p>

<p> Each problem comes in two parts. The second is revealed after you complete the first. Both students and teachers are enjoying the problems. </p>

<p> What I like about the Advent of code, besides the one a day release, is the fact that at least so far, the problems aren't super crazy hard. They require a little thought but they seem very doable. </p>

<p> For me, that makes them a perfect platform on which to play with a new language. I'm working through these in Clojure. I've been putting my solutions up <a href="https://github.com/zamansky/adventofcodeclojure">here</a>. I have no idea if my code is "good" Clojure but it's been fun nonetheless. </p>

<p> So, if you're looking for a nice set of small programming problems and want to explore something new, check it out. </p>
