My Journey Of #100DaysOfCode

👋 Everyone

I completed my #100DaysOfCode challenge on the 15th of November, 2020.
Here is my experience with the 100DaysOfCode challenge.

TL;DR

It was an amazing experience, you should also try it.

How I started

It all started with a reply on 👇


How you can start?

Rules are pretty simple.

Just start with what you want to learn or explore. I started it because I wanted to be consistent with my DEV work and explore new technologies.

What I got from 100DaysOfCode

I have done a lot in these 100 days.

  • Learned a bit of Django and DRF(Django Rest Framework)
  • Made some cool animation in Flutter
  • Connected with a lot of cool people on Twitter
  • Pushed my boundaries

It was such an amazing experience!

Problems that I faced

I can't work daily😩

The main problem which we all might face is we may get bored/tired and drop out of the challenge. In my opinion, just try and push yourself for a week or two then eventually you will develop a habit to work daily.
TBH, I was very greedy, but this greed helped me a lot. It helped to work even when I was feeling very sleepy - I would not recommend this to anyone, good sleep is necessary
I needed to push myself to work for an hour daily, eventually, it became a habit and now it is hard to break. Either I'm coding or I'm learning new concepts through articles, YouTube, or GitHub issues.

Can't find proper resources🤦‍♂️

Many may say it's just an excuse, but sometimes it is really hard to find something you were looking for. I had some difficulty in finding resources for DRF but this playlist from Semy Colon helped me a lot.

What I did in 100 days?

Days What I did
0 to 19 Learned Django and DRF at the surface level

65 to 73 College project(JavaFX), tried riverpod(https://riverpod.dev/)
74 to 82 Again worked on my portfolio site😅 and planned for a hackathon project.
83 to 85 Worked on the hackathon project😩
86 to 100 College project, YouTube videos on flutter

If you want to see all of my tweets you can go on this search query
PS: It was very nostalgic for me to see my old tweets and write this🥺💙

Final Thoughts

100DaysOfCode challenge could be a really good start to learn, explore, and if you are trying to be consistent. But don't just stop after 100 days. After you have achieved one goal, set another one for yourself. Just keep on trying out new things, just don't limit yourself.

Obviously, we all face such issues! I just try to find a solution for it. If this doesn't work then I just try to do the same thing in different say.
