I thought I’d share what I recently watched that inspires me.
Jennifer De Walt shares her experiences (at JS Conference 2014) of how she learned to code by creating 180 websites in 180 days. It’s inspirational to see how she shares her successes and failures with the audience. Jennifer also mentions that with every site she creates, it is accompanied by a blog post (for each day) and the code is in a GitHub repository. In the past, I’ve tried to demonstrate what I’ve learned using CodePen in addition with GitHub.
As much as I love to copy and paste jQuery scripts, I would like to gain a better understanding of the fundamental reasons of why I should be coding in a certain way and to know the background of what I’m doing instead of merely copying and pasting scripts (Thank you Stack Overflow!)
