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:
- writing code every single day
- all code must be written before midnight
- code must be up on GitHub
- written code must be useful (comments, reformatting, refactoring does not count)
- 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 😉
