Advent of Code (AoC) is an Advent calendar of small programming puzzles for a variety of skill sets and skill levels that can be solved in any programming language. This page catalogues efforts by users to solve these puzzles in APL. Feel free to add more, including your own.

The solutions can be used as references for solving the puzzles, or just a general way to hone your APL skills.

Adám Brudzewsky's video on parsing text files, useful for solving Advent of Code problems.

At the end of AoC 2021, Adám Brudzewsky published an informational video[1] with companion code[2] to parse text files that are similar to many common input formats given by AoC.

In January 2024, hosted a four-hour-long live stream where a panel of seven discussed Advent of Code 2023.[3]

There are a couple of leaderboards for APLers: 375448-b54bbc8d and 656501-67f7cded.
