I’ve known about the #100DaysOfCode challenge for quite a long time. Whenever I spend time on Twitter, which admittedly isn’t often, I see people posting about it. I never decided to “commit” to it because I used to spend hours each week practicing coding anyway.
However, the last two years involved having a baby (who is now incredibly 19 months old!) and just trying to find a schedule that works for all of us. We only have childcare part-time, but I work full-time. This is intentional so that I can spend as much time as possible with Kacey, but it makes it tough to do anything outside of work and parenting.
In addition, my job has over time become much more a practice in managing all the gears that turn (and most often, doing the turning myself) such that coding has kind of taken a back seat. The coding that I do have the opportunity to do is more routine and less learning.
After completing those certifications, I’ll move on to creating a web app of my own.
- Days 16-30: Complete the freeCodeCamp Front-End Libraries Certification
- Days 31-45: Complete the freeCodeCamp APIs and Microservices Certification
- Days 46-60: Create a web app
- Days 60+: ??
I’m really excited about this challenge and will update the plan based on how long things actually take me.
