The Dood's been busy. I haven't been posting a lot and most of my free time has been spent doing the 100DaysOfCode Twitter challenge. This is my second attempt at the 100DaysOfCode challenge. The last time I attempted the challenge I made it to around 70 days and summer happened.
I waited till autumn for my second attempt. I figured what better way to spend the colder months than doing the coding challenge. So for the last 50 days I haven't done much else but code. Halfway there! 50 days to go!
Over the course of 50 days I've managed to make a couple simple web apps. One is a Fahrenheit to Celcius converter and the other app is a tipping app. I still have to style them, and I may build on them in the future. http://new-aeon-design.com/apps/index.html
My main goal for taking the coding challenge was getting NewsCryptoBot back up and running and making some much needed upgrades to bitcoindood.com. So far so good.
NewsCryptoBot is running and pulling bitcoin prices from the Coindesk api and posting the news to Twitter. Bitcoindood.com is starting to get it's much needed facelift and after a long delay the news aggregator is back up and running. http://bitcoindood.com/
Both the news aggregator and NewsCryptoBot are running off a Raspberry Pi and NodeJS. I'm also working on a crypto podcast aggregator that should be up shortly. https://twitter.com/NewsCryptoBot
The best thing about the 100DaysOfCode is how much confidence it builds. Although I still have a long way to go, I'm learning a lot and problem solving while I'm coding is getting much easier.Each day my confidence grows in my coding skills and I'm looking forward to see what I can accomplish at the end of the challenge.
I'll keep you all posted and post an update at the end of the challenge.
