Web Developers: 5 ideas to Celebrate the Holidays
If you’re a fan of coding, let’s check out the most fun Christmas-themed things you can do to celebrate the season properly.
May the Magic of Christmas Be with You!
Advent of Code
Advent of Code is a holiday classic: it’s like an advent calendar for coding fans! A small programming puzzle is published each day; anyone can enter to solve these enigmas using whichever language they prefer. Want to challenge your friends to see who’s the fastest programmer? Advent of Code is the right way to do it, Christmas-style!
Holiday Video Calls
Who says that work calls can’t be fun? Websites like WebStockReview offer a great selection of Christmas-themed frames to brighten up your video calls with banners, twinkling lights, Christmas trees and much more. They might even make the most Grinch-like of your co-workers smile! Take a screenshot of your video calls and tag EPICODE on social media; we’d love to see your faces!
A Letter to Santa Claus
We all wrote letters to Santa Claus as kids, but how many of us ever received an answer from the North Pole? Hardly anyone, according to a quick poll among the EPICODE team. How about adding this Dear Santa Action to your GitHub repository? Santa Claus can finally answer your letter and maybe even make your wishes come true! It depends on if you’ve been naughty or nice this year…
Create your favourite Christmas playlist and share it with your friends to celebrate the season in style. If you can’t remember the most iconic titles, be inspired by this playlist by Spotify (100 Greatest Christmas Songs Ever) and let Mariah Carey get you in the holiday spirit. You can also import the playlist onto your website.
Just how long until you get to meet Santa Claus himself? This countdown will tell you how many sleeps are left until Christmas. You can also use your server’s Discord bot to remind all your co-workers how many days are left until Christmas. Plus, discover some Christmas Jokes to enjoy at home! The code for your Christmas Countdown is also on GitHub.
