Recently, Maciej Aniserowicz wrote on his blog about starting the second edition of the “Daj się poznać” competition. I’ve decided to take part in this challenge. I started my blog over three weeks ago and since then I have made two posts. I think that taking part in this contest will encourage me to have a more systematic approach to my blog. I think this contest will be a lot of fun and provide a lot of opportunities for me to learn new things. For the competition I am required to write an average of two articles a week for three months (minimum 10 weeks), and this seems like a big deal to me.
The contest will run from March to May and the winners will be announced in June. Writing a blog is only one part of this undertaking, the other is completing a project and all blog posts must be related to this project. I haven’t decided what my project will be but I have the whole of February to brainstorm. I know that I want to learn and try some new technologies, for example, ASP .NET Core 1, Angular 2, and this project will be a good occasion to do this. Maybe I will also try to use Docker, Azure or another cloud computing platform. We’ll see, but for sure I want to gain a lot experience from this project. Additionally, I am going to do this project on Ubuntu 14.04. ASP .NET Core 1 is a cross-platform framework and I am going to try it out on environments other than Windows.
As you can see, I’ll be treating this competition as source for many challenges: experiencing new technologies, regular blogging, and systematic work on my “side project”. Everything that I am going to use is currently in the Beta stage, so this is another challenge for me. We will see what happens in June. I hope this will be great fun and that I will have a lot of great experiences, so…let’s do it!
