So far, so good!
I set my expectations for these first 2 weeks as increasing how much time I spend coding. Coming from a few months of nearly 0 times per week, I’m up to at least 4. Success!
Weekends are where I fell off which surprised me a little bit. Since I obviously have more time to code on the weekends, I thought my productivity would increase like it had previously. I found that it was actually harder to interrupt a day of doing nothing to do something that I kind of classified as “work” in my mind. To combat this, I will use weekends to focus on completing projects more so than courses. I still have plenty left on FreeCodeCamp and have a few ideas of my own.
Going Forward, I will also post an update every 5 days – specifically days ending in 0 and 5. I’ve mentioned this before, but writing has not only been fun, but beneficial in retaining information. Being able to talk about what I am doing in detail – in a way both techies and non-techies can understand is a skill I appreciate having and improving.
Goals for Day 15:
Decided to start my own #100DaysOfCode starting today.
Dance season is over, which means more time to prioritize coding and learning and building and blogging. So here’s what’s happening:
- Paused CS50.
Trial and error, folks.
- Reactivated my Team Treehouse account.
It has been over a year now since I last had an active account. I decided to reactivate it because I wanted a bit more structure than FreeCodeCamp or Udemy offered. Things like quizzes, tracks, suggested goals, and time estimates were appealing to me.
