100 Days of Code


Learning How to Program and Write Practical Applications

Day 6: Done with Responsive Web Design!

The big push is over. Six days of coding through FreeCodeCamp's Responsive Web Design certification curriculum plus three or four days of preparation beforehand and the initial push is done.

Challenge Met

I knew the key for me would be to get to FreeCodeCamp.com and my text editor daily. And while the challenge says only an hour a day is all that is needed to complete the challenge, I put every bit of spare time I had into finishing this module as quickly as I could. I was at it for several hours each day.

Today, I almost got side-tracked after working through the CSS Grid module. I learned some new grid techniques and began thinking about refactoring this template again. I'm glad I pulled myself away from that because had I gone down that rabbit hole, I wouldn't be able to move on to the next step at FreeCodeCamp.

Time to Move On to Required Projects

Now I can move on to the first of several projects required for certification, a Tribute Page. I'm torn between creating an Indigo Girls tribute page, a tribute to Sarah Moore Grimké or a Harriet Quimby tribute page. Or, maybe I should pay tribute to Bessie Coleman? Hmmm... Ladies of Vibration, Lady of the Movement or a Lady of the Sky.

Completing these next few projects will move me closer to what I really want to dive into: Javascript - you can see why I opted for Javascript given the results of my wildly popular Twitter survey right here.

Day 6 Progress

  • Completed FreeCode Camp's Responsive Web Design Curriculum
  • Visited the FreeCodeCamp forum to look at other folks Tribute pages
  • Journaled and posted my progress

DAY 6 can be put to rest. ...Until tomorrow: DAY 7 of my 100 Days of Code.
