A Unison Advent of Code announcement in verse

Rebecca Mark

Twas the month before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a programmer was coding, with their keyboard or mouse;

This READMEwas bookmarked on Unison Share

In hopes that a puzzle would soon be there;

The advent was oauth'ed with my chosen creds,

While visions of Unison danced in my head;

And though I hadinstalled the UCM app,

I had just settled down for a long winter's nap,

When at 12 PM Eastern there came such a clatter,

I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to my laptop I flew in a dash,

To download the puzzle and code in a flash.

The moon on the silvery laptop did show,

A page still downloading, my network was slow!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a fun coding puzzle, the first of this year!

With a two part solution, each download's a click,

But a client exists for this, justsolveAndSubmit.

"Don't copy your input", theinstructions explained,

And when solving the puzzle you enterrun main.

To theUnison leaderboardmy browser did fly,

Filled with my fellow coders, all having a try.

To the top of the leaderboard! With each http call!

Now code away! code away! code away all!

As submissions came in to the board in a queue,

On a list full of friends, I saw my handle too!

So to all those who join us, with every function and byte,

Merry Advent of Code, and to all a good night!
