I'm starting 30 days of commits in July, who'd like to join me?

I decided to start 30 days of commits in July and I'd like to others to join me. If you're up for it, come join the discord server that I've made and am using for this event.

What is it?

30 days of commits is the idea of spending 30 days working on a side project and trying to fit at least one commit a day into the project.

Why?

It's really easy to fall off the wagon working on a side project you really like. That's what happens to me. Events like these, community, and being able to share my progress, keeps me working on the stuff I like to work on but often get distracted.

What's the goal?

That's up to you! I'm on the fence between:

  1. working on a photo manager application I started working on back in 2018 during "The Shippening"
  2. PICO8 game development - I've got a couple of small working projects.

My goal is to just work on these, make some kind of progress.

Come join us!

EDIT:

Looks like this caught a good deal of popularity. The server community decided to use the hashtag #30DaysOfCommits to use on Twitter if you want to follow along there! :)

This is a great idea! Consistency is key, and I definitely need that for one of my projects right now. I'm in.

easy-peasy. Unless you count commits for work which could potentially cost me my employement šŸ˜‚

No, I don't count those, but still, outside of work, I don't think I ever managed , in my life, to stay off code, for more than a week :D

I might take part in this. Last few months I've been working on a Markdown powered micro-CMS in PHP and it might be beneficial to have some structure to my work on that.
