Still frame from a follow-up video.

APL Quest is the title used for a series of short live chat sessions held by Adám Brudzewsky with guest appearances by Richard Park. The sessions run on Fridays at 15:00 UTC since 4 February 2022, changing to 13:00 UTC from 14 October 2022. Each session focuses on one problem from Phase 1 of a past APL Problem Solving Competition, beginning with problem 1 from the 2013 round, and is followed up by publication of the code[1] and a video that summarises the solutions.[2]

APL Quest events happen in the APL Orchard, and requires a Stack Exchange account:

The Stack Exchange chat system allows signing up for reminders to these recurring events.[3]
