30 Days to Form a New Habit of Coding – Are You In?
Many times we have seen people, especially students, complaining about how they can’t maintain consistency while doing Coding and solving programming problems. All the excitement and enthusiasm of the beginners often get disappeared as time passes. The scenario somehow looks like this:
- Day – 1: Task Completed
- Day – 2: Task Completed
- Day – 3: Task Completed
- Day – 4: Pending
- Day – 5: ———
- Day – 6: ———
- And so on.
But as they said that it only takes 21 days to form a new habit and this applies to Programming skills also. Undoubtedly if you would dedicatedly allot some time to Programming and Problem-Solving each day for 3-4 weeks then chances are very high that Coding will become your new habit and you’ll be able to give yourself a solid command over Data Structure & Algorithm skills. Now, the question arises, how to do this? Okay, no worries, we’ve got a solution for yours this problem too! GeeksforGeeks is coming up with 30 Days of Code course where you can attempt one coding question every day for 30 days and can master your Data structure and Algorithm skills.
Yes, 30 Days 30 Challenges. Isn’t it exciting?
