100 Days Of Code - Round 1 Days 22 to 28

November 18, 2019

This past week was a gruelling week for me. I didn't write any code at home or learn anything new from the ASP.NET Core course. All I did was work on new features for JRS Document Storage and fix bugs. I am under immense pressure at work to release the new version of JRS Document Storage. I have other duties at work that also needs my urgent attention. Thus, when I got home, I wasn't in the mood for anything else. I didn't tweet about my progress. I didn't update my log on Github. I spent time with my family when I got a chance. I did learn something this week that I can take with me as a developer. Some of these points are conventional and not applicable to software development.

100 Days Of Code - Round 1 Days 15 to 21

November 11, 2019

Another week down, another blog post. I didn't skip out on any coding this week, but, I did do some coding at work one day instead of at home. This upcoming week I'll be doing some maintenance on the [JRS Document Storage desktop application](https://www.jaderickerts.com/projects/jrs-document-storage.html). I won't learn a lot of new stuff. I will continue with the 5 AM tutorials though.

100 Days Of Code - Round 1 Days 8 to 14

November 4, 2019

Second week into my 100 Days of Code Challenge and already I've missed out on a day of coding. I'm pretty disappointed because it wasn't for anything major that I did miss a day. All I did was stay up late to watch Chelsea vs Manchester United and I was too tired the following day to wake up at 5 AM. That one football match was enough to put me off my schedule. But, I won't dwell too much on the negative and focus rather on the other 6 days I managed to code for at least an hour. Here is what I've learned this past week.

100 Days Of Code - Round 1 Days 1 to 7

October 28, 2019

I've committed to the 100 Days of Code Challenge. This is my second attempt. The last time around I only managed to get to about 14 days but then life happened. I decided that I would rather start again then continue after having missed so many days. It didn't feel right. This is the first post of 15 blog posts about my 100 Days of Code Challenge. I'll post every week what I've learned.

Web Development - My New Career Path

September 5, 2019

After some careful consideration, I've decided to change my main area of development from desktop development to web development. It's a decision I haven't taken lightly. It's a switch I've wanted to make for a couple of months now. This was my thinking process behind the switch.
