Hello dev community 👋 How are you all doing this week?
For those of you who don't know what this challenge is all about should read more about it from here
Besides learning how to code, staying motivated while learning to code was one of my biggest challenges, which is why I always recommend absolute newbies to start this challenge. The Twitter dev community is amazing at keeping each other motivated, helping out with bugs, resources & advice. You will never feel alone in the journey and will constantly have other newbies around you who are at the same level as you.
Codiamo is a coding journal platform designed by me and developed by my husband, Foysal to allow newbies to keep track of their daily coding activities and stay on track of their progress. You will have 24 hours to add the activities and 24 hours to edit them. So there is no way to cheat!
On top, I believe keeping a diary of our activities will allow us to show our future employers what we have been up to in a more organised way. As a beginner, it's always hard to convince our employers that we are hard workers and have been active in the learning process everyday. Sure Github does it for us but it takes some time to learn how Github works and we don't always write code to learn how to code. We read books, play coding games, watch interesting tutorials, listen to podcasts and so on.
If you have already started your challenge on Twitter and would like to use Codiamo to track your progress, then the good news is we allow you 3 days to import your previous activities from Twitter to Codiamo but the bad news is you will have to import your days manually due to Twitter restrictions.
Currently, Codiamo has these features:
- Option to also make an activity private
- Little Animations - hehe! It's not a feature but I am so excited that I have learnt how to do small animations on webpages! I had to mention that it exists!
- A news feed where users can see everyone's activities altogether on one page should be coming very soon.
I started my second round of the challenge today and using Codiamo to document my journey. Check it here
You can also check out my brother's Codiamo profile who is currently 15 years old and learning programming and was my personal guinea pig ❤️. Thanks to him for being my own personal Codiamo tester. Link
Let us know what you think of the platform and the kind of features you would like to see. Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
Note: The app does not intend to replace Twitter for new developers but rather encourages to use it as a great resource and social platform. The only intention of Codiamo is to never lose the hard work we put into our challenges and keep our day to day activities in one place.
Happy Coding everyone!
