As you may know my buddy, Kevin and I have a podcast together. My new project is building a website for the podcast from the ground up. Starting with nothing, I may use some frameworks like Bootstrap, I’m not sure, I haven’t decided yet. I’m currently working on the landing page, it’s not going to be anything to complex, relatively simple in fact. As soon as I figure out how to make a git repository and share it on here you guys will be the first to see!
The podcast has gotten some very good traction in the last week, we’ve more than doubled our listeners from previous episodes! It’s very exciting, a lot of thanks goes out to SoloLearn, for those of you who don’t know, SoloLearn is a phone app that has lessons on coding. They have a great supportive community and some cool challenges where you can challenge other people in the community on your knowledge of a specific language. SoloLearn has featured us on their main page, which has helped with listener ship a ton. As you can probably tell I’m pretty excited about this. We are eager to see what comes of this and are happy with the success thus far in the show!
I have made a big commitment in the last week, I am currently doing the #100DaysOfCode challenge! It’s been very successful so far, I am on day 12 now and I am super happy with the progress that I’ve made. A lot of people on social media have been very supportive and I couldn’t appreciate it more! The coding community in general is a great community to be in. Everyone is very supportive and positive, especially when it comes to encouraging beginners. So I am certainly thrilled to see where this journey leads me, I’ve learned so much already and there is still an infinite amount left to learn! Let’s get coding already!
I am still on the front end track on TeamTreeHouse and I have started on a little bit more difficult spot in the track, and I kind of have been procrastinating on actually finishing the projects because they seem hard. I am currently working on making a “Connect 4” game with creating new classes and objects. I’ve been focusing more on making that website than I have been with continuing my education.
The podcast has been a huge win over the last week! I couldn’t have imagined where I am, a year ago. The show’s been a blast and I can’t wait to keep it going. Also just starting the new website project has been great for me. I’ve pretty much built the landing page and now I’ve got to start on the actual meat of the site, which will take a bit more work, but I am totally ready for it! Bring it on!
