Temporarily pausing work on Good Code 👮

Moemin 🛠️ @muchkler

Hi there everyone 👋

For the past 2 months, I've worked on Good Code — a website where you can download free Adobe XD templates that you can use to improve your HTML and CSS skills, basically an alternative to Frontend Mentor.

Honestly, it was and still is great! I've managed to create a small community with people submitting their code, people have bought templates, and received great feedback. So why am I temporarily pausing work on Good Code?

Well, I'm Egyptian, after finishing college, you're mandated to enroll in the military. Depending on your level of education, you either serve for 1, 2, or 3 years. Thankfully, I'm only doing 1. I spend little time on vacation so there's hardly any time for me to work on Good Code and get the rest I need.

That's pretty much it. I finish my service on the 1st of March next year, so hopefully I will resume working on it by then. Also, if there's ever a time where I feel like there's nothing to do, I might release a template or two.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

      Thank you! Always great to meet a fellow Egyptian.

      Yeah, it's been a rough 9 months but thankfully it's coming to an end soon.

    Good luck and thanks for your service.
