Managing a MongoDB deployment? Take a load off and live migrate to MongoDB Atlas, the official automated service, with little to no downtime.

By now you should be familiar with our Thursday Code Puzzler slot. The idea is simple: solve the coding problem as efficiently as you can, in any language or framework that you think is suitable.

Note: Even though there really is nothing stopping you from finding a solution to this on the internet, try to keep honest, and come up with your own answer.  It's all about the participation!

This weeks question is about deconstructing numbers to find digits that match a certain pattern.

Write a method that would find all positive integers that do not have 0 in their digits, and have a digital sum equal to 5. An example of this would be 14  (1+4 =5). 

Output what each of the numbers are and, as usual, aim for efficiency in your answer

Thanks to everyone who participated in last weeks question, providing some great solutions. 

MongoDB Atlas is the easiest way to run the fastest-growing database for modern applications — no installation, setup, or configuration required. Easily live migrate an existing workload or start with 512MB of storage for free.
