In this blog post I will be covering the following topics :

  • What all I gained?
  • What will I be doing in Round 2 ?
  • Special Announcement

What all I learned ?

I started the challenge with basic HTML, CSS & intermediate Python knowledge. My portfolio a blank slate. During the challenge I learnt HTML , CSS & Javascript , built many projects alongside it. It didn't take me much time to grasp basics of Javascript so I could skip to the important stuff.

I struggled in the algorithmic part, I feel that struggle improved my problem-solving skills a ton. I love fetching APIs and playing around with data. I started learning node for server-side && Svelte & Sapper too.

The challenge helped me in making a habit to code consistently

What all I gained?

  • I created a mini-community on Twitter & Discord.
  • I made many new mentors.
  • I made many friends that I can ping anytime.
  • I understood the importance of being consistent
  • I understood burnouts are real and taking breaks is important

What will I be doing in Round 2 ?

I will :

  • focus on designing skills
  • work on Svelte related projects
  • more contribute to Open Source

Projects in mind :

  • Going through devchallenges.io
  • Working on Madad [discord bot] even more
  • Working on a Map project
  • Also posting more blog posts
