I’ll be starting this challenge tomorrow (Wednesday). I must admit that I feel a certain amount of professional shame by doing it, but there’s a conjoined sense of need to do so, too.
I’m at an uncomfortable juncture in my professional life as a developer. I have a whole lot of years of experience, but I look at job descriptions and I feel like that experience don’t align with them. It’s like that dream of showing up naked at your final high school exam, but you’re awake and it’s not a dream.
I didn’t make the right choices over the last 6 years in staying current with the latest technologies and picking the companies that would have ensured the right development of my craft. It’s uncomfortable and unavoidable.
So, doing this challenge for 100 days, along with working on my own app projects, is a way to get back on track.
Been in my situation? Mentored or known someone who has? I’d love to hear your pick-me-uppers in the comments!
