My #100DaysOfCode completed!
I’ve completed my #100DaysOfCode 2 days ago and today I want to tell you a bit about my experience. First of all, I’M SOOOO HAPPY THAT I HADN’T SKIPPED IT!
It was very inspiring and interesting, and, guys, I haven’t ever studied so much than these days. Every day, even on weekends, I’ve studied and coded, coded and studied, like this:
- I’ve finished half of ” Git a Web Developer Job: Mastering the Modern Workflow” on Udemy: now I know, how to work with Gulp anm not afraid of it any more, also, thanks to the course, I’ve started to practice BEM and it’s great!
- I’ve completed the session with a Chingu as a Project Manager, and here is our nice project, also I’ve prepared an article about best Project Manager tips on Medium.
- I’ve completed really badass Codepen snippets and improved my CSS3 transitions/animations knowledges. Here they are:
- Also, I’ve started a #100DaysOfCodepen” challenge, here it is
- And the last but the most important part – big projects, which I’ve fully completed:
- “Taxi” website – I’ve firstly used Flexbox model on this project and it was awesome!
- “Jim Adler” website – big and nice, 12 pages, 48 hours of work
- “Webinato” website – 87 hours of work, oh my! My best project ever: I’ve used a new SCSS files organization here, it’s my first dashboard ever and I’m so proud of it!
I think, these results are really great and I don’t know if I could achieve them without #100DaysOfCode challenge which inspired me so much and helped me to believe in myself, to believe I can work so hard and I can do really big things without skipping them. I’ve coded and coded, no matter if I was tired or if I had no mood for coding, I’ve studied and studied, no matter if it was hard, even if I had PILES of work to do, I’ve tried to find 1-2 hours to study and discover something new.
Sometimes I was like that:
But sometimes I was like that and it was awesome:
Why #100DaysOfCode is so great?
Firstly, the challenge community on Twitter is exteremely supportive and nice. Communication with it encourages. Guys, you’re amazing, really!
Also it helps to organise yourself: you know that every single day you need to code a bit or to study a bit and you get used to it. It’s very uncomortable for me now to spend day without coding or reading an article about improving my code, or watching a video course.
I’ve improved my skills, received some really interesting job offers, now I’m hired on a really big and great project – developing front-end part of the web application, so the challenge has really boosted my career.
Today I’m starting the second round of the challenge and hope it will be even better than this one! If you’re doubting whether participate in it or not – participate, guys! Don’t hesitate – just start it and it’ll change your life as it has changed mine.
