If you are in the software development circles,I’m sure you have heard of the #100DaysOfCode. The premise is to code at-least for an hour everyday.
History of #100DaysOfCode
The #100HoursOfCode was started by Alexander Kallaway a self-taught web developer, absolutely passionate about coding and the future of technology.
He started the initiative after he was frustrated with my slow speed of progress in learning to code.He needed a way to force himself to get onto the right track and stay there.
My Reasons For The Commitment
- I want to become a better programmer but I realize that life becomes busy and I don’t practice enough.I always find other things to do rather than code.
- I’m taking the challenge to prepare for my certification exam 70-483 Programming in C#
- Create an online portfolio
Alexander Kallaway outlines these things that one commits to:
- I will code for at least an hour every day.
- I will tweet my progress every day, with the hashtag #100DaysOfCode and note which day of the challenge I’m on.
- If I code as part of my job, I will not count that time towards the challenge.
- Will only count the days where I spend at least some of my time building projects — not the days where I spend all my coding time working through lessons and tutorials.
- I will encourage and support at least two people each day in the #100DaysOfCode challenge on Twitter.
- I will only skip a day if something important comes up, and when I resume, I won’t count the day I skipped as one of my 100 days.
On top of the above I commit to :
- Sharing my progress on this blog everyday.
- Make a review post of my weekly progress.
That’s my commitment and I’m sticking to it.
