Becoming a programmer takes a small bit of intelligence and a LOT of persistence. Writing code every single day keeps your brain focused and helps you grasp difficult concepts.

Long form programming is the most beneficial. Having one 2-hour programming session is infinitely better than 4 30-minute sessions. Much like a Heroku dyno, it takes your brain time to "spin up" and "load the code". It might take 15 minutes to get in the zone, and by that time, if you're doing a 30-minute session, you only have 15 minutes remaining. If you're doing a 2-hour session, you still have one hour and forty-five minutes of great productivity ahead of you.

In order to encourage consistent coding, I've built a leaderboard for TeaLeaf Academy. Input your name and GitHub username and you'll be added to the leaderboard below. The more you commit, the higher up the leaderboard you'll get!

The leaderboard was built using Foundation Zurb and a scraper gem called Nokogiri. It's the same gem that powers Capybara's functional testing. If you're curious about the code, take a look here: Tealeaf Leaderboard GitHub


This site was built using TDD best-practices by TeaLeaf Academy student Patrick Jones
