MDN gets 15, Software Releases and the #100DaysOfProjects challenge | Front End News

Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of Front End News. I do hope you will find the following topics both interesting and useful.

MDN Web Docs: 15 years young

15 years ago, the MDN Web Docs portal was born - and web development was never the same. We all landed there at one point or another, in our quest for knowledge that will allow us to complete our projects.

Interesting things worth having a look at

I also stumbled upon the following news items and I thing they were way too interesting to be ignored, but they were also not fitting in the normal episode structure.

The #100DaysOfProjects challenge

One major challenge developers face with their projects is consistency - staying on track and keeping yourself accountable. That's where the community comes through, offering support and encouragement.

The most recent initiative is the 100 Days of Projects. This is the brainchild of Ceora Ford and it has been already embraced by a lot of people.

The rules are available on the official minisite at 100 Days of Projects. To share your content, just use the #100daysofprojects hashtag on Twitter.

Have fun and keep creating!

That's all there is in this edition. If you want a front-row seat to the selection process for the next episode, join me on Twitch every Saturday (go to at 20:00 EEST).

You might also want to subscribe to the YouTube channel at I am working on bringing you new content there, such as the recent interview with Katie Fenn on the power of developer communities. As always, your support is highly appreciated.
