100 Days Code Challenge

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.

DAY 1

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 2

Day two… well my internet connection kicked my ass. I was left frustrated and wasn’t able to do much.

Day 3

Finally finished setting up flutter. Had to upgrade Android studio. Another day wasted without doing much.

Break

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.

Day 9

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 I had some errors about ADB being outdated.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.

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.

Day 11

Made a little progress. Had a quick tutorial on Dart programming language.

Troubleshooting

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

…..

Day 15

Finally built something. Should be done with this tutorial but I ran into some bug. Will get it fixed on day 16.

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

Day 19

Will post screenshots of my work tomorrow.

Day 20

Day 21

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.

Day 22

Feeling a bit sick today. I have cold but I’ll be back tomorrow.

Day 23

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.

My App

One more tutorial, then I’ll build my own project based on what I have learnt.

Day 24

Just starting with this tutorial.

Day 25

Still on the tutorial from day 24

Day 26 – Day 33

…. burnout

Day 34

Back! Started with the Chat UI. Screenshots from today

Day 35

Taking a small detour. Revising HTML, and CSS
