Matt's Holiday Hackathons
Work can take up a lot of our time, but it is vital we make time to learn and do the things we are passionate about. For me, this means doing fun little hackathons on my holidays and weekends to either refresh existing skills or to learn new skills.
These projects aren't meant to be perfection. They are done fast and often forgo the shortcuts of professional libraries to add extra challenge or fortify my knowledge. First and foremost, these projects are a fun way to keep my mind engaged.
In more recent times, particularly as I split my time between programming and digital artwork, I have been doing smaller challenges and hackathons on specialised social platforms. They are a great way to get feedback and inspiration, so be sure to check out the profiles I have linked below.
