How to Commit to your Commits - A 365-day Commit Streak | 4:00 - 5:30 PM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the last year I have completed a 365-day commit streak. Github is a tool that many programmers use to collaborate on coding projects. Github currently tracks each user’s contributions on a image calendar. That is the platform in which I have used to measure my progress. I have dedicated myself to exploring and contributing to open-source projects that help to better my understanding of coding. I documented my dedication by writing a blog that accounts for this year-long effort. I would like to discuss how to do this and how a little bit of discipline everyday can lead to a great benefits. I come from a non-technical background, so many people who are approaching an interest in technology as a profession will find this very informative.

Since last year, I have gotten married, started a new job, moved across the country, and bought a home. Many things have changed, one thing remains constant, I have been coding everyday for the last year. I would like the opportunity to discuss the challenges, rewards, and lessons learned about this experience!

Austin Startup Week is supported in part by Capital FactoryTechstarsGalvanize, and Janik Vinnakota LLP. If you see someone from their teams, give them a hug and hi-five!
