Programming & the Bigger Picture x Twilio Hackathon Project Update

This post was originally published on April 21, 2020 on my blog.

Yesterday, I was an absolute beast with coding and my Twilio hackathon project. Each time I came up against something challenging, I was able to break the issue down into smaller, more manageable parts.

It's becoming more and more clear to me how much programming is about knowing what solutions are available and where to look for them. The more familiar you are with the bigger picture/web development ecosystem, it gives you more tools on hand to put one foot in front of the other to solve hard problems.

The deadline for the hackathon is steadily approaching (T-minus 9 days left!), so I realize I need to get going with adding my Twilio API to the app.

But first, I need to focus my attention today on making sure each user is seeing their unique data once they're logged in. I'm confident I'll figure it out, but it was definitely the main issue I ended with yesterday.

I'm looking forward to checking back in here tomorrow with a positive report :)
