Yesterday was a big one! I ended up just writing and writing and writing and looping and looping and looping. And, if I'm being totally honest and transparent, my original solution before refactoring had a
goto in it. Not great. But it came out pretty good after some refactoring and pulling logic out into functions.
In today’s puzzle, we're back to Conway. This time in the third dimension. We've got cubes that turn on and off depending on how many of their 26 neighbors are also active. And the rules for transition are pretty low, so I think this is going to be one blinky cube!
As always, this is the spot where I’ll plug any leaderboard codes shared from the community.
Ryan's Leaderboard: 224198-25048a19
If you want to generate your own leaderboard and signal boost it a little bit, send it to me either in a DEV message or in a comment on one of these posts and I'll add it to the list above.
