New Year, New Challenge – 100 Days of Code

Starting the 100 Days of Code ( #100DaysOfCode ) challenge

 

I am always looking to boost my coding skills and as I watch everyone make resolutions for the year, I couldn’t help but think I should try this challenge. In case you don’t know what I’m referring to, one resource is https://www.100daysofcode.com/ – which really gives you a good overview of what the challenge involves.

What will I be building?

I am a project-oriented person, so I will be building a web application that runs sentiment analysis on text data from APIs.

The basic topics I hope to cover:

  • Flask Application
    • User login
    • Store data from external APIs
    • Utilize PostgreSQL and MongoDB
    • Jinja2 templating
    • Back end API development
    • Luigi ETL pipeline

I will try and send out a blog update every week or two with highlights! I will also be updating GitHub as I go along. Part of the challenge is also posting on Twitter, so each day I’ll be using the hashtag #100DaysOfCode and you can follow me @stoltzmaniac
