I personally think that this is one of the best ways to learn new things - build fun and interesting for you projects. You can devote a small project like these to one thing or a concept and finish it in a couple of evenings or so.
Then, when you gain more skills in this area, you can combine them into something much more substantial.
The most fun part here is that there are no rules! You can do anything you want. You can let your imagination roam free and just code whatever you like, however you like.
Nobody is going to stand behind your shoulder and complain about missing requirements or strict deadlines.
Thanks for sharing this.

Well said. This is exactly how I felt while pursuing this, and it really paid off. Since finishing my challenge I noticed that I’ve been much more mindful about my CSS usage since this helped me understand properties at a deeper level. Now I work as a frontend engineer and and I’ve been able to pick up my companies code axe and conventions very easily. I’m also helping rewrite our CSS documentation too. Passion projects really do pay off.
