I finally decided to hop on the 100 Days of Code Challenge. My class mate from the university, Teddy will be joining me on this challenge. We have agreed to check up on each other in the evening to see how far.
We will be starting with Flutter and today (Oct 3 2020) is day ONE!
I will be updating this page as I progress with the challenge. So cheers to consistency and shaming procrastination.
SN: This challenge just reminded me that I have to upload my projects on GitHub.
Today I have not done much. First video I watched is an introduction to Flutter by London App Brewery on YouTube. I really love this video and her voice just makes me want to learn Flutter.
I wanted to buy the full course – Flutter Development Bootcamp with Dart but I thought why not try the free tutorials on YouTube first.
Introductions are over, now it’s time to get started. I picked a tutorial from one of my favorite channels, Academind. On day two I’ll be installing and setting up Flutter.
Day two… well my internet connection kicked my ass. I was left frustrated and wasn’t able to do much.
Finally finished setting up flutter. Had to upgrade Android studio. Another day wasted without doing much.
Honestly I have not done much in the last couple of days. The internet keeps acting up. Then my laptop decides to join the madness. That aside I had so much on me and I have to admit that I need to work on my time management skills. I am tempted to start this all over again but I’ll just keep going.
Day 4 – 8
Nothing to see here.
Got back to work on day 9. Internet seems to be better but my laptop is another issue. I had some errors about ADB being outdated. Trying to fix this. See you in day 10.
Hummm…day 10 did not go as planned. I thought I’d be coding by now but I dozed off while waiting for the emulator to boot up. This morning I wake up and realize I didn’t even launch the AVD emulator. It’s like I’m high on something.
I am installing and fixing has to be fixed now so in the evening I can jump right in.
Made a little progress. Had a quick tutorial on Dart programming language.
How to run flutter on a real android device: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/54444538/how-do-i-run-test-my-flutter-app-on-a-real-device
Device not authorized (answer from Mohammed Alukkal is the right one): https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50391607/android-flutter-debug-device-not-authorized
Running Gradle task ‘assembleDebug’… (This is taking an unexpectedly long time.) – I stopped the process twice. Restarted my laptop, the same issue. I just let it continue running and it worked. App runs on my device now *yay!*
Taking a short break to finish up on my Hackathon project. Will be back
Project done and dusted. I decided to spend the whole day finishing up on the eCommerce project I am working on. Everything has been sorted but we have to hold back due to the #ENDSARS protests.
Day 12 – 14
Finally built something. Should be done with this tutorial but I ran into some bug. Will get it fixed on day 16.
Finally fixed it thanks to this repository on github.
So I’m done with the free course from Academind. Will be back to give updates.
Day 17 – Day 18
Will post screenshots of my work tomorrow.
Rather than build the exact same ‘Flutter Travel App’, I decided to build mine as a ‘Chop Bar App’. I really enjoyed this tutorial and I wished I had started building UIs first.
Feeling a bit sick today. I have cold but I’ll be back tomorrow.
Still coding along with Doctor Code. I decided to switch things up and make mine a ‘car spare parts app’. This is one of the techniques I use to learn. By making little changes as I code along, it helps me test my knowledge.
One more tutorial, then I’ll build my own project based on what I have learnt.
Just starting with this tutorial.
Still on the tutorial from day 24
Day 26 – Day 33
Back! Started with the Chat UI. Screenshots from today
Taking a small detour. Revising HTML, and CSS
