The third entry in a continuous series of learnings from this accountability challenge.

I decided to make longer form accountability posts for the trends I hashtagged below. Will this hurt how I’m perceived when I decide to hunt for a corporate job and let freelancing take a back seat? Not sure.

Some schools of thought say you should avoid these trends on networks like LinkedIn. To be honest, I can see why, so my intent is to enhance what I document about my efforts and process.

I want to see my own progress more than I want to prove myself to anyone else. So I’m planning to expand on my efforts in the takeaway section and give a “behind the scenes” look at what I find worth learning by providing my Anki questions/answers.

If you have any questions or input on how I’m structuring this and tracking progress, please reach out on socials or feel free to buy a sub and comment here 🙂


Day 3 of #100DaysOfCode to #buildinpublic with #100Devs

I studied:

  • resume building
  • a bit more html and css
  • git and the terminal refresher
  • templates for a landing page design for an upcoming project

Biggest Takeaway


I’m feeling a lot of positive, yet nervous, energy today as I’ve taken a big leap and was accepted into an idea acceleration program through an org called buildspace. It’s called Nights & Weekends (n&w s4, to be exact) and it’s the 4th iteration of a six-week program that helps people turn ideas into results. It feels wild that I’m trying to build a product while I still also recognize how much I have to learn about all of tech that I’m leaping into. That’s where the energy comes from but I’m embracing it.


I did some networking follow ups today and took a break from doing new customer cold outreach. It feels nice to be able to monitor my pace and respond kindly to myself. I have two warmed up leads that will be booking time next week and those included with my new product creation venture will keep me busy full-time for the next 6-8 weeks.

Design {and Development}:

Today in my networking I started reaching out to my sobriety network for end-user feedback on tools and technology they use to manage their life and what they would like to see out of a product marketed towards folks interested in, or already started on their recovery from addiction. It was met with excitement and some intriguing feedback. There’s still more research to do and design and product white boarding will start over the next couple days. Saturday is the n&w s4 kickoff and I want to be ready.

Note Dump

I use this space to generate Anki card content for my spaced repetition learning. For more info, check out Ali Abdaal on YouTube. The things I called out to quiz myself on are personal to what I took away from the material I reviewed but if you’re curious to discuss any, hit me up on Twitter or just become a paid subscriber to help by donating to Resilient Coders (then you can comment here 😉)

Today's cards are around git and the terminal.
