Not going to lie, I’m tired as hell. My days at work are becoming longer, and with so much to do afterwards just to carve out an hour (or 3) to coding, I’ve really had to concentrate on staying upbeat when I get home. I feel like the real challenge of staying motivated has begun.
To counter fatigue, I’ve created a night time routine that will allow me to get at least an hour and half of coding in after dinner. I want to try to get 2 hours in during the day too, and this means I’ll have to be more productive before work, while I’m traveling, and during my break hours. Even though my blog updates may not occur daily, I’ll make sure you all know what I’m doing through the challenge repo I created on GitHub. I want all my readers to ride along with me, and I appreciate the accountability.
In the first hour of the AngularJS course, I followed the exercise and built a small, simple program that (1) greets the user, (2) takes input from the user, (3) calculates both the sum and product of two numbers entered by user.
Here’s a small screenshot of what the code details:
My example above makes use of directives, controllers, and expressions. If that sounds like jibberish to you, read this post I wrote on AngularJS that explains the components in better detail.
Though I’m often exhausted at the end of the day, I’ve come to find out that if I keep coding past the first 10 minutes, I eventually get caught up in what I’m working on, and can go on for much longer. I’m determined to see this challenge through.
