Advent of Whiskey: Coding Advent Calendars and the Strangest AI Projects


It’s the season of advent calendars, and coding platforms are launching challenges left and right. If you are waiting for a sign to try a new language or framework, advent calendars are a great place to start.

The Advent of Whiskey series will be 10 episodes leading up to Christmas.

Chuck and Robbie are following Flaviar's Whiskey Advent Calendar 2022, trying two new whiskeys per episode and talking about the latest in tech. Robbie might be gearing up to try the CSS advent calendar challenge but don’t expect Chuck to try CSS any time soon. 

In this festive episode, Chuck and Robbie talk about learning new skills with a coding advent calendar, AI's strangest or most exciting use cases, and the Advent of Whiskey series following the Flaviar Whiskey Advent Calendar 2022.
