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