100 Days of Code: How a Twitter hashtag will force me to code for 100 days

100 Days of Code: How a Twitter hashtag will force me to code for 100 days

For 100 days I want to program an hour a day – and the 100 days of code are supposed to force me to do it. On the plan are HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React. If that works?

The concept behind the 100 Days of Code Challenge is simple. There are few rules. After participants have made a public commitment to do so, they must do so every day for 100 days

  1. code for at least one hour,
  2. write a tweet with the hashtag # 100DaysOfCode that documents your progress,
  3. Exchange ideas with at least two people who are also taking part in the challenge.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re an absolute newbie or an experienced developer who just wants to learn something new – everyone can take part. The choice of content is entirely up to the participants. Studying a Python tutorial is just as legitimate as dealing with complex data structures, learning Git or loosening up the process with an educational game in between.

Some programming practice can’t hurt!

In order to deal with the topics I write about here on t3n.de in a practical way, I participate. Even if I’m a little scared of it. 100 days are long. On the plan are HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, JavaScript, React. Quasi a refresher for topics that I’ve come into contact with before. Let’s see what’s more. The challenge is time-bound. In other words, I do not intend to finish this or that today, but only to work intensively on one thing for an hour every day. It’s over after an hour, no matter how it went. No matter how far I’ve come. At the end of the day, I can still pat myself on the back – having dealt with it for an hour a day counts. The background is the same as for all other 100 Days of x Challenges: It’s about making programming a habit. For a part of the day that belongs to it like brushing your teeth every day or the yoga class every Tuesday evening.

Public obligation – even if it’s only Twitter

The public commitment via Twitter should help with perseverance. Basically, nobody prevents me from simply quitting – but the daily tweet and the exchange with others should prevent that. Optionally, the challenge suggests keeping a kind of diary about what worked, what didn’t and where there is a problem. There will therefore be a weekly update on t3n.de about how the challenge is going for me. There will soon be a profile on GitHub with projects that arise during the challenge. You can follow my Struggle on Twitter. Of course, I’m happy about fellow campaigners – you can read everything there is to know about the challenge at this point.
