Python 100 Days Of Code

Back in 2021, I completed the Python 100 days of Code challenge. The challenge is based on the idea of completing at least one hour of code each day for 100 consecutive days.

When I was partaking in this challenge, I was also working full time doing web design and development. I would usually finish my day of work and then get straight into it while I was still sitting at my desk and in the mode to concentrate.

On most days, it was very difficult. My brain usually wanted to switch off after I completed my work projects for the day. I persisted, even on the days it was difficult.

My goal was to get through the first ten minutes, if it wasn't working out I could always complete the challenge in the morning. Fortunately, once I would start, I would usually end up finishing. I'd be proud of myself for opening the challenge up, and the momentum built up each day. Keeping in touch with other people from the coding community helped. I built up great relationships on Instagram and Linkedin - where we would support each other through comments and direct messages. I have met some great people through doing the challenge who I still keep in contact with now. Another great way to feel supported is Reddit forums which are great for any issues you might come across. There is always someone willing to help you out!

I'd love to do something like this again soon - I believe there is always room for improvement, and always room for a challenge.

It was a tough, but extremely rewarding experience. I got through it with the momentum I built up by crossing each day off and of course the help of other coders in the community. I would recommend taking part in a challenge like this, it improved my skill and understanding, and it also motivated me to become better at what I do.
