I DID IT! I completed my first round of #100DaysofCode! What did I learn? SO MANY THINGS.
The best part for me was the amount of friends I made throughout this process. There were many times when I had random people from all around the world motivate me, help me, or even set up a time to meet with me and review my code. It made me truly appreciate the dev community and all of the beautiful people who wanted to see me succeed. It is weird because I never met any of you, but I feel like I could not have done it without your inspiration and motivation so for that I thank you.
One thing about me is that I am a very determined individual, I have always been that way. When I say I am going to do something, unless something dire happens to prevent me from doing it, I do it! Well the same thing happened with me for #100DaysofCode. When I first started I thought I should blog about it, without realizing that all I had to do is write a Twitter post to accomplish the 100Day Challenge, but ambitious me thought, "oh thats easy, you can do it." I was wrong.
About halfway through #100DaysofCode there were times when I had absolutely nothing to write about. On those days, I either did tons of my bootcamp assignments or watched youtube tutorials all day. There were days when I just did not know how to convey what I learned just yet or I just did not feel like typing or writing anymore. On those days, I struggled.
I can tell when I had one of those days just by looking at the blog:
Day 44, Day 42, Day 50, etc.
I had nothing really to write about and just shared what I did, such as watching a a youtube tutorial.
Next for me?
I will continue to code every day because I really do love it and learn so much every single day. However, I think I will take a break from #100DaysofCode until I complete my bootcamp. I do not recommend doing both if you do not have the time to commit.
I was worried about sharing content as a beginner and if it is any help, so I asked Twitter and received the following response:
So, I plan to write a blog at least once a week. I want to continue to share what I learn from a beginners perspective and continue to see my growth in coding. In addition, I may possibly start vlogging my coding experience. I will keep you all posted on that.
Lastly, I was recently accepted into the MLH Fellowship and I am super excited!
I can not wait to meet other developers, learn, and contribute to open sources.
I want to thank you all for helping me through this journey.
