Officially 20% of the way through this experiment, days are flying by and I’m learning a ton. This is how I would describe the current vibes:
That being said, after the first 3-5 days working through the FreeCodeCamp course and beginning my first projects, I started to feel comfortable both writing my own scripts, as well as reading/understanding code from others online.
I built a bunch of random stuff that you can see on my GitHub profile, but the coolest was a program that tracks how much time has elapsed since I quit my 9-5, and a YouTube randomizer app.
Over the next 10 days I plan to develop a basic understanding of React and will start messing around with Solidity. This is the point where I think this experiment is gonna start feeling real…
The hackathon for web3con (virtual web3 conference being hosted by Developer DAO) begins on February 28th which will occur during this upcoming 10 day chunk. I’m in the process of putting together a small team of people to build a basic project for that, feel free to reach out if you’d be interested in collaborating!
Last thing, I submitted an application to a very interesting web3 fellowship program called Le Crypto Fellowship. Accepted applicants receive €100k to fund a year of learning/building in web3 in exchange for 7% of their first company. Fingers crossed.
