100 Days of Code – challenge

About 100 days of code first time I read on this blog. Then I start to read more, and I find John Rasing blog and Richard Littauer post on Medium. I think it’s a great idea. Basically, I need some challenge, because I a lite bit lazy in recent times and my learning and coding progress is a bit pure.

I put below screen picture from my current GitHub account:

As you can see, there is no great progress for a few days. Longest streak took 7 days, contributions in total : 99 repos.

Rules for 100 days of code are simple:

  1. writing  code every single day
  2. all code must be written before midnight
  3. code must be up on GitHub
  4. written code must be useful (comments, reformatting, refactoring does not count)
  5. written code can’t be related to work, must be created in spare time, after hours (probably during nights, a day has only 24 hours)

Personally, I think that with coding every day is like a writing every day for the professional writer, it’s a big part of his life. The same like for example skilled craftsman who sculpts something in wood, inch by inch,  minute by minute, day by day …

I know that will not be easy to find a balance between work/life and side projects. Probably I will find some tools/apps to better manage my time and be more productive.

Something that I afraid is to stick with some problem to solve for a long of time and don’t have an idea to write a solution.

What I hope to achieve ?  Programming becomes a daily habit and hopes to continue it as long as I can.

I start from today 😉
