Learning To Code By Building 180 Websites in 180 Days

How did I do it?

If you just don’t want to read this because… well, TL;DR then just make sure to check out the websites :D You can find them at


Well, I wanted to learn coding. But how? I have tried many resources, such as:

  • Codecademy
  • Treehouse
  • Code School
  • Dash

None of them appealed to me. So now what?

I had to figure something out, I knew I was missing out on something big. After all of those courses, all I had were the basics, I still didn’t know what to do. I wanted to make REAL projects, in the REAL world. But I had no clue to how to actually make them. The truth is, that none of the online sites that claim to teach you coding actually work. Sure, they teach you the basics, but not how a real application is made, or how you can make something yourself.

I wanted to make something. Something that would change the world.

So, after hours of searching for ‘Coding Courses’ online, I gave up. I had to teach myself. See, I like learning things with projects, and actually getting your hands dirty.

Talk is cheap. Show me the code.

So I decided to do something crazy. I decided to learn to code by building 180 websites in 180 days. It was pretty crazy at first, but with the strict one-day deadline, I could actually get something done! Maybe I could actually learn something.

So here I am, making one website every day. If everything goes well, then I should be done by April 29, 2016. I know it will be a pretty crazy ride, but hopefully I can get through.

Why You Should Learn Coding

Why should I anyways?

Well, there are many reasons. First of all, there are WAY more jobs for developers than there are developers, developers are in demand. Plus, many people, including the president people to learn to code. With coding, you can do anything, launch a startup, make a meme website, anything! You can put anything you have in your mind and publish it out for the world to see. Coding is pretty awesome.

If you actually read all of this, you’re pretty awesome.
