    Pros: 

    A very nice challenge indeed

    Cons: 

    Seems unrealistic when you have a job

    The concept is good especially for those wanting to switch careers or trying to learn to code, but for those who already have tight schedules it seems very unrealistic. But for those who managed to do so good job!

    Eli Or has never used this product.

    Pros: 

    It inspires me to code (almost) every day, and it has a very supportive and diverse community.

    Cons: 

    None

    I've been spending my summer doing the 100DaysOfCode challenge, and it has helped me spend a lot of time on learning app development. There is something satisfying about tweeting your progress every day, instead of celebrating the small steps forward all by yourself.

Hi Everyone, my name is Alex and I've created the #100DaysOfCode challenge. It initially started with me being frustrated at my job - the technologies I wanted to learn were not the ones used at the company, but I had a hard time making myself code after work - I would always postpone it to the next day, and watch some TV series instead... From the books/blogs I've been reading on habits and self-improvement I knew steps one could take to increase the likelihood of successfully acquiring a new habit, and out of combining them I came up with the initial rules and made the decision that I would commit to coding for 100 days in a row. I've announced it in this article: 1) https://medium.freecodecamp.org/... After that, to my surprise, a lot of other people started joining me in it and over time I kept improving the challenge based on the feedback, questions and ideas. All of that information is now on the main website. The best way to learn more about the challenge is to read the original article above, then go through the following resources: 2) https://medium.freecodecamp.org/... 3) https://medium.freecodecamp.org/... (This article was written by Quincy Larson, creator of freeCodeCamp) Also, for more context and broader conversation check out the links to the podcasts I've attached to this page. Community. A huge community has risen around the #100DaysOfCode challenge on Twitter, with people learning to code, improving their skills, helping and motivating each other. You can find all the channels you can use to connect with the community here: http://100daysofcode.com/connect/ and here: http://100daysofcode.com/resources/ I hope you join us in the quest to improve our coding skills! Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter (@ka11away) or ask any questions! :)

@ka11away Nice initiative Alex :) Appreciate it. Any plans to monetise it ?
This is a great initiative that got me (and many others) coding every day. Thanks for the inspiration

The community on Twitter is pretty big. I accidentally used the hashtag when I tweeted about coding in 100 consecutive days. I got hooked and now on 254th day of coding. https://github.com/josephmaxim
I will indeed join this challenge today! Upvote!

Agree with @ipranav Would have been useful for non-coders to take up this challenge if there were some learning pathways with links to curated resources. Plus something that tells the learner what has been achieved at the end of the challenge.
