100 Days of Code: Day 1.

In January 2018, I’ve began studying for my Higher Diploma in Data Analytics. I’ve been finding the course enjoyably challenging, and the support from tutors and fellow students is great. The course content is delivered online, and my coursework is submitted via GMIT’s moodle portal.

I felt kinda like this initially!


And then..

Family, work and learning on 2 streams of technical knowledge. Time for some self talk!


And here I am. I’m almost done with my end of semester projects for my H.Dip, and I’m cracking on with my nanodegree. I’ve still got a long way to go with the course materials and 6 more projects to submit before the deadline on August 15th 2018.

So, I’m commiting to 100 Days of Code, in order to honour the opportunity I’ve been given. I’ll be blogging regularly, and spewing out bullshit writing on my incremental progress with it.

Ever wanted to learn to program? Start now and commit. You won’t regret it.
