An Hour A Day

Total views

This project is inspired by Side project time, popularised by Google.

Basically, companies such as Google have shown remarkable success on allowing their employees to work on their side project for about 20% of work time, designing and developing something creative and learning new skills.

Similarly, I aim to study something new and improve my skills using about an hour a day. While this time will be used on topics that are not directly related to my ongoing project, I hope these topics I study aside can help widening my knowledge and understanding.

Example of what I might do on this time :

  • Competitive Programming Contests
  • Attending seminars and talks
