Yesterday, I signed up to participate in the 30 Days, 30 Sites Challenge. There's already #100DaysofCode event going on since January (but I haven't done much coding aside from getting this forum up LOL), but I want to participate with this particular one for many reasons:
- My portfolio, my CodePen and my GitHub need some fresh content to present so that I'd finally be able to start networking and find new jobs in the field.
- It's good practice, I need to work/improve of my fundamental skills in HTML, CSS, frameworks, etc.
- No requirements or experience needed. Just build the challenge sites based on what you know and what you're familiar with. You'll also receive emails to resources where you can learn stuff you're unfamiliar with (for example, CSS Flexbox, responsive web design, etc.). The only requirement that they ask of you is to get a free CodePen account, where you can work and display all the code you made for that challenge. In that way, you won't have to spend time uploading them on your own server or sign up for a free hosting account or anything like that.
I think it'd be wonderful for anyone interested in getting into web development to participate in challenges such as this. It's open for everyone, including hobbyists. This is the first time that I've participated in a challenge like this before, so I'm really excited! The challenge starts this Wednesday (3/15), so the emails will start arriving on that day. I'll stop by here when I can to show you all my CodePen links when I do complete them.
So, if you decide to join, that'd be awesome! If not, wish me luck.
