100 Days of Code: Day 9

Home / Technology / Web Development / 100 Days of Code: Day 9
HTML and CSS have become almost too easy for me, so today I am discussing my plans to move on to something more difficult. I took on some of the freeCodeCamp challenges and can't wait to try some of the intermediate and advanced tasks.

Today I spent about 90 minutes going through almost all of the HTML5 and CSS challenges on freeCodeCamp. It was very basic and not at all challenging, so I think tomorrow I am going to try to find something a little harder to do, or at least move on to jQuery, JavaScript, or some of the more intermediate/advanced sections.

Another option is to start on the 30 Days, 30 Sites challenge. Then at least I will know for the next 30+ days, I’ll be working on independent projects that can be as challenging as I make them. I could always start and do the freeCodeCamp challenges sporadically when I need a break.

On a slightly unrelated note, the freeCodeCamp Dayton, Ohio group on Facebook has over 350 members. I was kind of surprised when I saw this, but in retrospect, I don’t know why. There are a few big colleges in the area, and the city of Dayton is home to tech companies like LexisNexis, Reynolds and Reynolds, and Teradata. So, it stands to reason that there are quite a few coders in the metro area. Maybe that’s why it has been so difficult to land a job.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
