This was going to be day 1 but then I thought I should make the day 1 entry more of a day one entry. So this entry has been ret-conned into yesterday, the 24th even though I’m really publishing it the 25th.
As part of my commitment to learn PowerShell and I think node.js and possibly a few other things I’m starting my marathon code-a-day today, April 25th. By my calculation that makes the last day Saturday, August 3, 2019 which is conveniently right before defcon.
I have been reading Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches for a while now. Well for what seems like longer than a month. I mean technically you’re just supposed to read a chapter while doing the exercises and that’s it I guess. But I’ve been going through each chapter in detail and making notes. Writing my own scripts, and going off on tangents. It takes forever. It’s fine though. That’s what 100 days of code is for. Something to keep me motivated as I go through the book. Good for me I’m already through chapter 4 and I’ve gone through and highlighted up through chapter 10. Yep. Optimistic.
I also own the Toolmaking and Scripting PowerShell in a month books as well. Guess I really went on a PowerShell marathon whenever that was.
