I had an Advent calendar as a child, which consisted of a paper calendar with flaps to open and reveal a graphic for the day. It was so exciting to open the window flap each day and discover a new surprise, all while counting down the days until Christmas!
Over the years, I've discovered that there are many different types of Advent calendars, some providing tasty treats like daily chocolates or an alcoholic beverage. Now, I've finally found the ultimate type of Advent calendar for us geeks: daily coding exercises!
The first time I heard of Scrimba was at a Women Who Code virtual meetup. It was Typescript study night, and I was interested in attending so that I could improve upon my Google Cloud Functions. They had us do the Scrimba Introduction to Typescript tutorial. I was impressed with the platform and how easy it was to code on the same page where you were watching the tutorial videos!
I've really had a blast anticipating the new challenges that would be revealed around 9PM (in my timezone) each evening for the past few weeks! On some nights I would refresh the browser as if I were waiting for popular concert tickets to go on sale.
