WHAT IS IT?
This is a challenge that was created by Alexander Kallaway and he wrote this article about it. Since then, it has garnered so much support in the field that it has now become a norm, especially for those learning like myself or those trying to learn a new tool. The goal of the whole challenge as highlighted by Kallaway is to ensure you code for a minimum of an hour everyday for the next 100 days. Challenging right? The goal is to find motivation to make coding a habit.
HOW DO I JOIN?
If you feel you are ready for the challenge, then joining is pretty simple. All you have to do is fork this Repository where you log about your daily progress. Also, use the twitter hashtag #100DaysofCode to tweet about your progress and then support those who are doing the challenge. You can find out more on the repo.
WHY I AM DOING IT?
After months of speculation, I have decided to join the #100DaysofCode challenge. This will not be the first time I will be committing to this, first time was at the beginning of the year but unfortunately I was not able to do anything and quickly forgot about it. At that stage, I had just started coding barely two months ago, so I wasn’t feeling the level of motivation I feel now. Also, I was alone, I haven’t had mentors, friends who code or anyone to push me, I was all alone and that was a big factor. But I’m glad I’m doing it now, I mean there is no better time than now and I hope to start and finish without missing a day.
I hope to achieve the following the following goals during this time:
- Start #30Days30Sites
- Complete FreeCodeCamp frontend section
- Learn new skills (Flex box, CSS Grid, SCSS, etc)
- Finish Frontend section of Web Developer Bootcamp Course
Well, I’m pumped up and I cant to see how this turns out. You can follow my daily tweets or check out my daily log on my Github repo. you can also check out my progress on my weekly goal check-in. I will beposting about my experience about the challenge in the next 100 days from today. So untill then, Happy Coding 🙂
