#100DaysOfCode is a challenge designed to encourage self-education in code and development. It's also the inspiration of a number of other challenges that have popped up such as #100DaysOfFitness, #100DaysOfHealth, #100DaysOfGratitude, #100DaysOfGiving, etc.

Here are the guidelines for #100DaysOfCode:
Learn more about the main rules, as well as some other considerations.
- Code for a minimum an hour a day
- Tweet your progress daily with the hashtag: #100DaysOfCode
- Each day, reach out to at least two people on Twitter who are also doing the challenge
Since I'm already doing this, because I code most days and I'm already on Twitter every day, it's not much of a challenge for me alone. But since my son, Joey, is a newbie-coder; we're going to do this together. So it will be my 2nd challenge, and he did the Scratch game design challenge; it should be fun.
I'm posting about this because I'm welcoming anyone else who'd like to give it a try as well. I know that @utopian-io is currently offering immediate account creation for open source contributors. So I think we'll also be tagging that as we do the challenge. In addition, many projects on Steem are hoping to bring more Dev's onto the blockchain. So I think it would be a great chance for Steem Developers to interact with the broader communities on #100DaysOfCode and Twitter, as well as, them to learn about us, @utopian-io, and developing for this blockchain.
If you're already a developer or coder of any kind, I bet you already code every day and already use Twitter.
Why am I posting this? Well, I'll be adding my updates on Twitter but I realized after a few chats on Discord that not many Steemians know about these voluntary code challenges. Of course, the only incentive is being an even more bad-ass coder. But I feel it extends beyond this. Many people I've spoken to here are really interested in SMT's, coding, blockchain, and more. But making the time to learn, not so easy. I guess I feel like this is a cool challenge to encourage accountability.
What do you think? Would you want to learn how to program? Do you already program?
