#codingthroughcorona day 1
Like many Americans, covid-9 decided it wanted to ruin my year. Most of the races we have been training for have been canceled. My company (Peerfit) had to lay off 40% of the employees. Unfortunately, I was one of them. I can no longer visit the gym.
I refuse to let this virus beat me, though! With a lot of companies having a hiring freeze along with unstable markets, I figured it may be hard to get land a job or contract at the moment. That and I have been really itching to work on some personal projects. So I bring you the idea of #codingthroughcorona!
I *hate* being bored, and I also hate not having a routine. So I have decided that I will treat this downtime just as if I had a job. I will be creating a real-time DND application. Each day I will write a blog post somewhat like a 1 person standup. Maybe people will read it, perhaps some people will learn from it, and perhaps it will help me land a job or contract. At least it will keep me stay sane through this!
codename Kill dargons:
For you tech nerds, the project will be written in Elixir / Phoenix. The plan is to fully utilize elixir for everything related to the backend. The front-end will be written in react and phaser.io for the game board.
Keep your head up!
We can all look to The Doctor for advice in these times.
In the days to come we will all face hard times. Just remember to keep your head up and try to write the best story you can.
