Starting the 100 Days of Code challenge

Starting the 100 Days of Code challenge

It’s been really, really quiet in the blog.

One of the reasons was me not coding in my free time any more. I code for a living and between code fatigue and having too many hobbies, I sometimes started a new project, but abandoned it shortly after starting it.

But no more, I really want to finish something and the 100 Days of Code challenge seems a promising way to keep me on track!

I will be coding for 1 hour a day for the next 100 days. I’ll try to follow the exact rules, but I might bend them and allow me to skip a day every week instead of every second week. Often enough, I’ll meet up with friends after work to grab something to eat and play some pen&paper. On those days, I usually come home pretty late. Normally, those days should be limited to once every two weeks, but it can also happen on a weekly basis. Just to give you an excuse upfront 😉

What am I planning to develop: I have two things in mind. First I want a nice, intelligent alarm clock. I want to sleep 8 hours a day, no matter when I go to sleep. So a fixed time to wake up is something I’m trying to avoid. I want this app to activate on a simple button click and it should sound an alarm after 8 hours (and 15 minutes to give me some time so actually go to sleep). I’ll explain the details later in a separate blog post. This is going to be a native Android App.

The second App is a collection of helpful tools for the Star Wars pen&paper RPG from Fantasy Flight Games. I’m still not exactly sure what I want to put in it, but a good start would be a wounds and stress tracker. This is going to be a ionic 2 App.

And here is the link to my log repo.
