It took me over an hour to do the first day of in Rust. I feel like a toddler again. I'm OK with that though. 🦀

@cdaddr I'm trying to muddle through with #Nim myself :) My biggest issue is being self-taught and having no clue about algorithms or data structures :s This is language agnostic though...

@kungtotte Good luck! You should self-teach yourself data structures too, it'll pay off in a big way.

@cdaddr I'm working on it :) I didn't pay enough attention in math class and I have no higher education whatsoever, so a lot of texts regarding data structures a a little over my head unfortunately. But I try to read as much as I can and I do things like #AdventOfCode to practice :)

@kungtotte ask the community on -offtopic on Freenode and you'll get advice on books and courses

@cdaddr I just went through the same thing! Definitely learned a lot in the process, with hopefully minimal square-peg-into-round-hole in the solution.
