What I Gained After 1 Year of #100DaysOfCode

I am a slow walker, but I never walk back — Abraham Lincoln

How it started

I read an article from the creator of the #100DaysOfCode challenge, Alexander Kallaway , and it got me super interested. I wanted to get better at coding and grow my portfolio. I knew if I committed to it publicly I would finish it.

I started the challenge on 31-December-2016 and I finished it on 9-April-2017

Progress: #100DaysOfCode and Javascript30 are done

The Rules I Followed:

  1. I will code for at least an hour every day.
  2. I will tweet my progress every day with the hashtag #100DaysOfCode.
  3. I will track my #100DaysOfCode progress on my GitHub account.
  4. I will encourage and support at least two people each day in the #100DaysOfCode challenge on Twitter.

Tip: To stay focus eat healthy, exercise regularly and keep notes

Sources and Inspiration for Projects

A lot of people say they want to code but they don’t know what to build, honestly, there are endless possibilities. Some free sources with online development courses are freecodecamp , codecademy , coursera , udemy , udacity and of course there are several channels on youtube . You can subscribe to other challenges, like javascript30 or read books, like eloquent javascript .

Personally, I used:

  • Developphp.com — A great site with video tutorials about HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery and PHP
  • I followed the javascript30 challenge
  • I also committed to the #dailyCssImages challenge (I wrote an article about how I started withpure CSS images) but I choose not to do it as part of my #100DaysOfCode journey.
  • I recreated pens from codepen .
  • I developed my own personal snippets.

Web Environment and My Daily Process

  • I coded most of my projects on Codepen and some of them on the text editor Atom. (These are my reccomendations for offline text editors)
  • After I finished its project I uploaded the code on GitHub.
  • I shared my progress on Twitter and I always encouraged others.
  • To make my life easier I used a lot of tools for selecting colors , icons , images and typography (I wrote an article of my favorite UX and UI tools, you are welcome to read ithere).

What Did I Gain?

My growth wasn’t only in a coding level but on a personal level too.

  • My web development and web design skills improved.
  • It got me motivated to commit to other challenges like javascript30, dailyCssImages , 30Days30Sites , 301DaysOfCode (which is what I ‘m currently doing), and I’ll propably start #dailyUI too.
  • I gain followers on Twitter , Codepen , YouTube and even in GitHub .
  • I learned to be more optimistic and grateful.
  • I got better at time-managment.
  • I learned to set priorities and actually stick to them.
  • I got feedback on my projects and positive vibes for my fellow coders.
  • I met a lot of people with different backgrounds and different aspirations (most of them were via emails, Twitter and Skype.)
