I originally started doing this when I was doing the 100 Days of Code Challenge. It worked out really well. I'd link to what I had worked on, talked about what I did, what I had to learn to do it, and what my next plan was. I'd also include links to cool articles or tutorials I found and whether I had read them or were saving them to read for later.
Plus 100 Days of Code asked us to keep our log on github so it was kind of public accountability and some green squares on my profile :)
That's a really cool idea to make it public and host it on GitHub. I might start sharing some of my journal entries on Twitter as I'm doing the 100 days of code challenge currently. Thanks!
Would be cool to have a file that's just a list of resources you read/used as well so it's easy to share with people later!
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
