The 120-Hour Workweek - Epic Coding Time-Lapse

Last week I set out to see how many hours of programming work I could do in one week on CodeCombat, our multiplayer programming game for learning how to code. I clocked in at 120.75 hours. Here's the epic time-lapse video I generated from Telepath (watch in 1440p if you can):

So what did I learn from this experiment?

Adjustable height desks are amazing.

I bought one from Ergo Depot a few days before. I must have switched between sitting and standing fifty times last week. I would never have survived otherwise.

What's My Motivation?

On Tynan

I haven't taken a nap since my last update, but I wrote a huge long motivational letter to myself. Here it is :

Dear Ty :

Hey man. Look, I know it's probably REALLY hard for you to stick to the sleep diet right now, but PLEASE PUSH THROUGH FOR ME. I've put some serious time and have gotten you most of the way there. You're doing the hard part now, but you can make it!

Just think about how great it's going to be in just a day or two! You will never sleep a full night again! The power is going to be amazing! You're going to start your new business! How fun will that be?? With all this free time, you can make it to a million by 25. I know you can. You've been hustling and that's awesome

I can't wait to tell people 'Actually, I don't sleep.'. THIS IS SO TY! You are going to make it and be a badass. It will help with everything' you will be a mini celebrity just for this if you play it correctly.
