#100DaysOfCode … so what happened to that?

100 days of code text layered over blurred image of code

This post is part of a series I’m doing to document my progress with the #100DaysOfCodeChallenge. You can read the rest of the series here.


It’s been a little over a month since my last update, which is definitely not great 😅. Though there is a good reason for the sudden silence.


I spent November seriously amping up my job search, eventually landing a junior web developer role, and settling in. It really took up all of my spare time and is something that I plan on writing a post about soon(ish). Settling in has been particularly tough with childcare and the long commute. Falling asleep while doing the kids’ bedtimes doesn’t leave much time for my usual nocturnal coding challenges!


But now we’re settled into a new rhythm and I’m ready to hit the JavaScript again. Since I missed so many days from the challenge, it seems more honest to hit reset and start at Day 1 again. I also have more of a structured plan this time around. Instead of doing a little challenge from one source and some from another, I’m going to follow the freeCodeCamp curriculum because they do such a great job of balancing examples and practice. I’m also going to finally finish my SkillCrush course and do the Ruby modules I’ve been putting off because it didn’t seem like a good time to learn Ruby. It’s been really bothering me that I’ve left it unfinished for so long, and there’s never a perfect time to do anything, might as well make time for it now!


So the plan is to do 30 minutes of FCC JavaScript and 30 minutes of Skillcrush Ruby every night, update twitter/github daily, and write a post every 10 days.


See you again in 10 days!
