#100daysofcode R1D1

One of my goals for the new year is to do a bit more coding. I used to be pretty darned handy with Python, but lack of use has dulled my confidence and probably my abilities. I aim to get that back to help with a few projects I hope to accomplish this year.

I also have a pretty spiffy idea for a WordPress plugin floating in my head that I hope to work on as well. That’s all PHP, which I have been working with on a regular basis for a very long time, so there’s no learning or re-learning to do, just buckling down to get it done.

And then there’s Javascript. I’m pretty good with the basics, but then there are SO many frameworks and libraries that I haven’t tried or used. I’ve played around a bit with Angular, but I’ve been reading a lot about Ember and React and I’d love to take some time to see what the fuss is about.

But for my first day of code, I’ve been fiddling with PHP and the Twitter API to build on some basic code I’ve been using to pull Twitter feeds in order to extract and some other information to help quantify social media effectiveness and reach.

Why I decided to start my 100 days on this particular day, when I’m so backlogged with regular work I will be burning the midnight oil just to get everything done, I will never know. But if I can get an hour of coding done today, I can get it done every day!
