I’m on day 18 of 100 Days of Code. I thought it might be a good idea to document it here for anyone that might want to follow along or take the 100Days challenge with me.
If you’re not familiar with the 100DaysOfCode it’s a Twitter challenge to code each day for 100 days. This is my second attempt. Last time I did it, I made it to around 70 days then summer happened 🙂
I will say this, in those 70 days I updated all my CSS and HTML5 skills. Honestly, being 50 and doing web design since the 90s… My coding style was dated to say the least. I couldn’t believe how much CSS and HTML have changed over the years. I’m really happy I took that challenge and updated those skill sets.
Today I installed NodeJS on my local machine. I plan on setting up a local web server this evening following this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8XF6AFGqlc
On a final note I learned a little about functions yesterday and made a simple tip calculator web app. I still need to style the page and make a couple final adjustments, but the basics of the app are completed now. You can find it here. http://new-aeon-design.com/apps/tip_calculator.html
Well, that’s pretty much my last 24 hours of day 18 of my 100 Days Of Code. I’ll be posting a daily about this for anyone that’s interested. You can find out more about the 100 Days of Code challenge on Twitter by using the #100DaysOfCode hashtag or go to the website to learn more. https://www.100daysofcode.com
