#100DaysofCode — Day 1

So…I have been dabbling in code for somewhere north of 10 years now. Everything I know has been self-taught, but has focussed mainly on HTML, CSS, Javascript, and then some Linux administration on the side. While I know enough to do quite a few things…there is always room for more. And to tell you the truth, a lot of what I can accomplish right now is a result of being able to read code better than I can write it. Open source code and reuse of the same code over and over has turned be into a lazy learner.

So instead of continuing the cycle of copy/paste, I figured it was time to stop procrastinating and get some work done! This is where #100DaysofCode and Chance Taken at the Chingu Cohorts come into play. Today I declare that I am starting the 100 Days of Code Challenge and will code for at least 1 hour every day. Today also marks the start of my Chingu Cohort (more info here)…I’m a Kiwi!

I’ve only been in my Cohort for a few hours…and I’m already having a blast, the instant community that is being formed by many people from all over the place is awesome. We are already talking about out plans, about ourselves, and what our goals are…I think this is exactly what I needed to get my feet on the road forward again.

As for my coding today, I’m going to be doing the FCC Speedrun Challenge, starting off with recreating my Portfolio. I’ll post a link when it’s done…which will hopefully be in the next few days, if not soon!

So, day 1, getting back into the swing of things, starting with my Cohort and getting back on track with FreeCodeCamp to start with. Actual coding done: some html and css basics for getting my profile started.

Tomorrow I’ll talk more in-depth about my future plans and how I see this process going! Until then, code free!

GitLab (I prefer GitLab, but most of the learning sites and projects use GitHub…so I’m still debating how I’m going to handle this.)
