Egged on by the CodeBuddies crew in our Slack channel, I decided to start off the new year with a new challenge: 100 Days of Code, or specifically 100 days of me sharing what I do when I’m not blogging here. Just to give you all some background, Richard Littauer wrote this post detailing how he spent 100 days writing meaningful code to get his projects done quicker. The post eventually went viral among noobs, and a year later, I’m still seeing post and code snippets by friends and followers sharing their own 100-day experiences.
I code everyday, but I don’t always share what I do. This is partly due to the fact that much of my coding comes from completing course assignments or doing client work, most of which I’m not authorized to share in a public repo. As I complete my specialization this February, and I launch my new portfolio filled with everything I created this past few months, I’ll have more to share. Some days I may post a complete project, other days you may get a post with a few code snippets. The point is to code daily, and of course I want readers to join with me.
For day 0, I set up this public repo adding details on the project and specs on how you can contribute if you’ve also started the challenge and want to share your work. Likewise, I will do a short write up for every day I code here on Our Code. Also be sure to check out CodeBuddies and request to join our Slack community if interested. I host hangouts there where you can learn, code, and chat with me @SheThrives11.
If your participating, share your blog links below in the comments section, and let me know how it’s going.
