100 days of code
I’ve been doing #100DaysOfCode and managed to reach day 50. Noting down progress every day and sharing it on social media is very helpful while learning a new skill. I reached only the day 50, since I didn’t write the days that I literally did nothing. You can find my #100DaysOfCode notes here.
I managed to finish about 200 out of 307 lesson on Udemy course: The Complete Web Developer in 2019: Zero to Mastery by following the lectures and doing the challenges. When I reached the lessons about React, it finally came to me that I don’t like Front End Development enough to make it a center of my future career. Having to deal with arranging graphics on the website and some other more design related things were just making me feel miserable. That was one of the reasons I didn’t spend as much time on learning as I would’ve liked to.
After some consideration, consulting the internet, few of my friends, doing research on the job market and bringing up my past experiences during the university, I came to the decision. I will learn something that my data and excel spreadsheets loving brain can grasp easier. I was considering C# and Java, in the end making a decision to go for Java. C# is still bound to Windows OS, which I rarely use.
My new goal is to get a job as a Java Developer by the end of this year. I will use all the means I have to reach that goal, with simple self-learning at the base of it. I’m even more determined than before. Since the time I first wrote on this blog I came to love to travel and I need to find a new job to be able to do more of it!
