- Every business day for a minimum of 30 minutes, I must write code or learn about the tool-chain used in the development process. Documentation about the code does not count.
- The resulting code must be useful, or it should be code that points towards something that eventually will be. No tweaking indentation, no code re-formatting, and if at all possible no re-factoring. (All these things are permitted, but not as the exclusive work of the day.) Tutorials and working through code examples as a means to learn are allowed.
- All code must be written before midnight, and after 6AM.
- The code must be Open Source and posted on Github.
I have signed up for the Pluralsight on-line go class here. So far, I have made it to the "Variables, Types and Pointers" section. We just haven't written much code yet. So I won't count that.
In addition, I have downloaded and installed IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.3 IDE, community edition. The on-line class they use this so I figured I'd give it a try. It was relatively easy to set up, I should write a quick post on what I did for reference. I'm also going to evaluate the vim plug-ins out there for writing go more efficiently.
So, When I get back I plan on kicking this off full steam ahead.
