Here’s an update on what I accomplished for the month of June.
I’m still at it with #100DaysofCode. Today is Day 92. It feels so crazy to be writing that! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, the #100DaysofCode community is so supportive! There are people from all around the world who’ve sent me words of encouragement. They’ve really kept me motivated to see this through.
I was recently made aware of a site called dev.to. It’s similar to Medium, but it’s strictly about developer related topics. I’ve written three articles on dev.to, and have gotten some great exposure and feedback. I’ve had almost 600 views on all of my articles!
My goal with dev.to is to spread information about topics that I struggled with when I was first learning how to code, in hopes that others won’t become discouraged like I did.
Since I started working with a mentor this month, one of his requirements was to have at least one git commit per day. (I’ll be committing later tonight.) At this point, I have 164. 😀 It feels so good to see all that green. There’s a lot of hard work and equal frustration in them!
In May, I was able to get my portfolio site live for the world to see. It was a great feeling, but I knew that I didn’t want to keep the “github.io” as part of the domain name for long.
This month I purchased a domain and now dayrentolliver.com is live! It was really intimidating trying to figure out how to configure everything (I still don’t quite understand CNAME, etc.), but I was able to do it with a little help from Google.
If not, I’ll pick myself up, and keeping working hard so that I’ll be more prepared when the next opportunity comes around.
Thanks for reading!
