I'm one day late but here i am:
1-Why are you learning to code?
Because i want to make games! it may sound childish but i've always wanted to that. Anyway, my plan B is to be a frontend developer, and i also want to be experienced in backend. oh, and i really like cybersecurity. there are a lot of things that i want to learn but i'm focusing on these three fields (game developer, web developer and cybercurity).

2-What's your goal?
I would really love to work for a company that makes games (Bethesda, Capcom, CD project red, etc). I also want to be a professional in making web pages and cybersecurity. I'm aiming to create my own website as my own resume. make my own indie game and be a completely professional in the cybersecurity world.

3-What does succesful learning look like to you?
doing exciting projects that make me learn new things and understanding how things work! i can only learn doing exercises.

4-How will you measure that progress?
passing the courses i'm going through is a good way to measure my learning, but another good way to measure my progress is completing a "skill tree" that i made for myself, describing the languages and technologies that i want to learn. and the final one can be starting and completing my own projects (the indie game, my resume-website, etc).

5-do you have a timeline or any deadlines?
I dont have any, but i'm sure i will be a frontend developer (i want to develop plan B first to get a job faster xD) by the end of the year, i'll have my resume-website and after that i'll search for a job. at the same time i'll be working on my game developer skills to start creating my first game.

You're not late at all! You have until the end of the week if you want to stay on-schedule and want to be eligible for the raffle at the end of the challenge — or as long as you want if that doesn't matter to you 😊
