100 Days of Code Stories

These are the people whose stories motivated me to consider and participate in the 100 Days of Code Challenge.

Austin Tackaberry

How I went from Newbie to Software Engineer in 9 months while working full time. Reading this in the third quarter of 2018 got me started with Harvard's CS50 Course. I started it but didn't finish it; in fact, I didn't get past the first week.

I was in the middle of creating Journaling365.com, a WordPress site, and wanted to keep a coding journal blog for CS50 too. Not having been involved with web work for awhile, there were too many things that I had to relearn for me to

  1. Start CS50
  2. Continue writing prompts for Journaling365.com
  3. Start another Journal Blog of my progress and
  4. Work at my "regular" job

Because I really believe in the power of journaling for learning, (and I get stuck in place when things aren't perfect), I left CS50 on the table. I'll go back to it after I complete FreeCodeCamp.
