Twitter bot update

Decided to rework some code for the Twitter bot and start really retweeting! So if you are interested in doggy pictures go follow @HappyTweetBot1!

This has been a really fun project! Learned a lot about APIs and how to run scripts from servers and all kinds of good stuff! It was also pretty simple to start, and now I can measure the success using a number, the follower count. I know that might seem vain but it at least motivates me a little.

Responsive Web Design Projects

Also decided to make progress on the Responsive Web Design Projects at FreeCodeCamp. I started them last December if I remember correctly and then they kind of fell off. The goal is to finish them and get my first FCC certificate!

Brushing up my HTML and CSS was fun and a little frustrating. Luckily Google is the programmer's best friend!

Study plan

I decided to make a more robust schedule for coding. My base plan right now is:

  1. Read a chapter of EJS in two days. Then do the exercises on the third day.
  2. Do at least ten challenges at FCC every day.

This is just the base plan and I'm adding some "spice" to the mix. The spice can be anything that I want to do on that particular day.

I'll keep this at the beginning of my writings and change it as I see fit.

I encourage everyone to make a plan. Winners make plans.

What I did today:

1. Improved my Twitter bot

What I learned from it:

  • Working with API
  • Everyone likes doggy pictures :)

2. Continued Web Projects at FCC

What I learned from it:

  • Revised HTML and CSS
  • Why Google is so great

Time spent learning:

Task 'Twitter bot'. Elapsed time: 18 min 17 s
Task 'FCC responsive web design'. Elapsed time: 39 min 11 s

Time actually coding: 45 min

Total time: 57 min 28 s

Time spent is tracked by my TaskTimer script and the WakaTime app.

Further reading

Eloquent JavaScript book

My favorite coding book.

FreeCodeCamp

Check out FCC for the best interactive exercises! I have finished the Basic JavaScript, ES6, Regex, and Debugging lessons and can recommend them for a beginner

Exercism coding challenges

Psst

You can check my answers to the exercises of Eloquent JavaScript. You'll find them here.

Have a great day and see you all tomorrow!
