I was skimming Twitter on a Tuesday as part of my morning routine, when I came across the hashtag #301DaysOfCode. This wasn’t anything new, as I’d seen it a dozen or so times before without really digging into it, but for some reason, this time it piqued my interest.
I had recently been spending a lot of time working purely on WordPress for my business portfolio, but I felt like I was moving a little too far away from the coding atmosphere. You can get a lot done in WordPress with very little actual coding – a good and bad thing depending on who you ask.
This definitely bothered me, so the #301DaysOfCode challenge seemed like a pretty neat and easy way to keep my programming skills in practice. Three minutes and one second a day is do-able for anyone that really wants something. On top of that, I could pick to learn something that was still relevant to my business and WordPress: React.
Each week I’ll be trying my best write up a summary of what I’ve learned, and post it here. It will be both a good way to review my knowledge, and a way to share what I’ve learned with others. Possibly, it will even inspire someone else to take up their own #301DaysOfCode challenge.
