Failed Experiment

Sep 2, 2016

I’ve been inspired by Jennifer Dewalt and her quest to learn how to make websites that resulted in 180 websites in 180 days.

That’s an epic achievement.

I wondered how this could be applied to programming? Could I create a new program/application everyday for 30 days? Not even 180. Just 30. I got my answer. NOPE.

The first day was easy enough. A simple Pomodoro App. I actually thought I could do this. Day one was pretty simple. Well… day two… not so much. I could make some progress, but I couldn’t finish something everyday. Not and have it worthwhile or interesting.

So I failed.

That’s okay.

Regroup and try something else.

So now I am trying to just program something for fun everyday. A couple of rules.

  1. It cannot be work. Meaning it can’t be a work project, or something I have to do for my job. Even though that stuff can be fun too.

  2. It cannot be a startup, business, or for money. This changes my mindset. I think about these differently. When I mix these, the projects always fail.

We will see how this goes.
