Starting tomorrow morning (March 24th) I’m going to be competing in my first Overnight Website Challenge. It’ll be 24 hours straight of coding which ends with a great new site for a deserving non-profit.
This is my first time doing the Overnight Website Challenge and I’m a bit nervous. I’m not exactly sure what I’ve gotten myself into. First off, I’m going to be up for like 28 hours. If I’m lucky, I’ll get a short nap or two, but that’s not a sure thing. I’m also not sure how my body will react come Sunday when I want to sleep or Monday when I have to go to work. That’ll be interesting.
The Challenge itself should be kind of fun. I’m on a 10 person team and I know my teammates rock. We’ve got a great group of people with tons of talent. The only real downside for us is that this is the first Challenge for 80% of our team.
No matter what happens, the non-profit that picks us will get a great website and we’ll have a great experience. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, expect some oddball status updates Saturday night and Sunday morning as my brain turns to mush due to lack of sleep.
Wish me luck!
