Day 1 of my #100DaysOfCode
Today I officially started my #100DaysOfCode journey and have decided to document that journey here on a daily basis mainly as a self accountability thing.
What is #100DaysOfCode?
Basically it is where you make a public commitment to code for at least an hour a day for the next 100 days. It was started by Alexander Kallaway, a Canadian Front End Web Developer, back in June 2016.
Why am I doing it and who am I?
I’ve always had an interest in learning Web Development but for one reason or another I’ve just never got round to it. I’m currently recovering from an illness that has kept me out of work for sometime so have plenty of time on my hands to devote to learning.
My name is Michael, I’m Scottish and fast approaching my 43rd Birthday!!! I’m starting the challenge armed with a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, and an even more basic knowledge of BootStrap 3.
For the last week or so I’ve been following Rob Percival’s The Complete Web Developer Course 2.0 and also Colt Steele’s Web Developer Bootcamp, both from Udemy. So far I have refreshed existing knowledge by completing the HTML and CSS sections of these courses.
So, What have I done today?
I combined these to write my first script on my own. It is very very basic in nature, but hey everyone has to start somewhere right?? I’ve even posted it on CodePen.
Other things I’ve done today include installing Git on my Macbook Pro and completing some exercises on Codeacademy and freeCodeCamp.
All in all I feel it has been a fairly productive day.
