What counts as a commit?
You are committing and pushing code to github that is not work related. This project is a time for you to work on skills and projects you are personally interested in.
How do I decide what project to work on?
The world is your oyster! Search Open source projects on github and join the Women Who Code DC #100daysofcommits Slack Channel.
What if I can’t hit 100 days in a row?
That’s OK! If you are using this project as a means for building a ‘coding’ habit, we suggest never miss two days in a row. Learn more about this habit building mindset from Leo Babuata of zen habits.
Is 100 Days of Commits just for women?
Nope! 100 Days of Commits is for anyone who wants to participate. Women Who Code DC is an organization to empower women to excel in the technology field. Learn more about 100 Days of Commits here.
