A new week is going to begin!
First, I do have to apologize! I didn't code yesterday as I promised.
But, I have a good reason why, and I am allowed to, this time, excuse myself. And that means that today will be day six instead of seven, so I can still be on 100 days.
The reason was Rails Girls London. I mentioned that on two blog posts already, but I haven't actually explained what it is.
Rails Girls is a workshop (which actually happens worldwide, so check if they have one near you here) to teach girls how to code on Ruby on Rails. The idea is to introduce coding to woman and show them that, even though being a hard path, you can still be a developer if you wish for. Coding is for everyone. It focus on woman as well because as we all know, it is an issue in software development now. Woman exist there, but not as much as it should because most woman think "I can't code at all".
I have a blog post introducing a bit of web development that will eventually be published, but I want to say this: Code is for everyone who is willing to learn. 💻 I am not going to say it is easy, but if you truly wish to give it a try, I am sure you can be a developer.
So, back to the topic, I went on Rails Girls as a coach for a second time. On Friday we have an installation party, which is just getting everyone ready to rock on Saturday. Saturday is the real deal, where we go through this guide to help people develop a simple app in one day and deploy it to Heroku. It is a lot of information to take for beginners, but that is how I learned Ruby on Rails and I am sure it can help lots of people. But, because I spent from 9 to 5 teaching, I was exausthed in the end of the day. This led to me falling asleep as soon as I got home. 💤
So, for helping out people how to code, I can excuse myself for one day, right? 😁
Day SIX - 26/06/2016
Time spent coding: 1h
Task(s) done: Ghost theme progress
Today I didn't do as much as I wanted. I was supposed to code for 2h, but after some social events I needed a bit of a break. 😫 I need to have some fun on my own sometimes. Anyways. I made a slow progress on the html and css structure of my own ghost theme, which you can find here: https://github.com/myubi/ghost-chocolatey
Check the last commit! 😊
That is all for today! Need to recharge my batteries and be back for more coding action! 😴
