An initial plan for the 100 days challenge is as follows, although I expect this to evolve as I go along. Day 1: - Clojure syntax and basic language use Day 2-42: One or more exercises from the following websites - [4Clojure challenges](http://www.4clojure.com/) - [Awesome kata exercises](https://github.com/gamontal/awesome-katas) with clojure.test - [ClojureBridge London exercises](https://clojurebridgelondon.github.io/workshop/) Day 43-75: - [http://Exercisim.io](https://exercism.io/) - [CodeWars](https://www.codewars.com/) - Clacks cryptography – other more advanced cyphers - Game of Life basics / clojurescript - Tic-tac-toe clojurescript - Othello clojurescript - Connect 4 - clojurescript - Space-wars in Clojurescript / svg – http://quil.info ? - Some projects with spec Day 76-100: (not 77-100) - [Advent of code](https://adventofcode.com/) - [24 pull requests](https://24pullrequests.com/)

Is day 76 a holiday?

jr0cket15:09:41

It would seem that day 76 is the day to see if anyone else is paying attention 🙂 Thanks for spotting the typo, as 77 should be 76 of course, to hit the start of the Advent of Code for 2018.

So does rule 5 here (https://github.com/jr0cket/100-days-of-clojure-code/blob/master/rules.md) negate what is being attempted over days 2 - 42?

seancorfield17:09:23

I would say the commitment is to spend at least an hour each day on those exercises (to see how many you can get done in an hour-ish).

yogidevbear17:09:05

I'm definitely willing to ignore rule 5 🙂

yogidevbear17:09:16

I think committing to over 40ish hours of 4clojure exercises, etc is well worth the effort

jr0cket19:09:40

I hadn't seen rule 5 until now. I will apply rule 5 partially 🙂

yogidevbear19:09:05

Don't worry about it on my account. It was just a naive attempt at a joke 🙂

jr0cket20:09:18

I am happy you noticed it though, gives me something to consider 🙂

seancorfield20:09:40

How does rule 5 conflict with those days' activity? I didn't actual follow that... even if it was a joke...

yogidevbear20:09:46

I think it's basically saying the the time only counts if it's spent working on a real project (as opposed to tutorials/exercises)

yogidevbear20:09:17

>I will work on real projects, facing real challenges. The time spent doing tutorials, online courses and other similar resources will NOT count towards this challenge.

seancorfield20:09:08

Oh, I totally missed that since it was below the fold in Slack! Hahaha... OK, good point.

jr0cket19:09:52

@yogidevbear Interesting point raised regarding rule 5, thanks for spotting that. @seancorfield thanks for the feedback. As with everything real, I expect the plan and the rules will adapt and evolve, otherwise that in itself wouldn't be a real situation. I hadnt really expected it to change before I started, however, I probably should have read all the rules first 🙂 To me the plan and rules are there to support and encourage me to do a significant amount of code every day for 100 days. Its the journey and the learning that is important to me (and hopefully a lot of learning I can share). Any changes to the rules or plan will be added to the journal I keep, along with the reasons for changing them.
