Hey Ben! Personally, my motivation went downhill along the month. Lots on my plate those days, but most of all, I was a bit… disappointed to notice that most challenges were focused on “project-level improvements” (readme, setup script, dependencies, todos, git branches, etc.).
Even though they’re necessary, I expected more “code-level improvements” challenges (given the “code quality challenge” name), like the compound conditionals or the overgrown class ones. I’m trying to get better at refactoring and code organization, and that’s why I signed up for this. Maybe I didn’t correctly understand the overall challenge content beforehand (not a native English speaker).
I don’t mean that project-level improvements are not worth looking into, by all means, but they were simply not what I expected, and that’s why I had a hard time keeping my motivation for the whole challenge. Still useful… but not what I was looking for atm.
Hope it helps
