Jennifer Dewalt, to teach herself to code, built 180 websites in 180 days. Get an intro to the project in her story for Lean In. The JFDI (Just F-ing Do It) approach is inspiring to me because while I learn best by doing, I often bury myself in books and tutorials. Getting hands on with any new skill early and often is a great way to practice the theoretical.
I’ve rebooted this website many times, this time I hope it sticks. Perhaps a separate dev site would cause less frustration (of rebuilding headaches) in the long run.
