Hi there, glad you’re interested! Here’s how being a member of the Weekly Project Club works:
On Monday you’ll get a problem that a (fake) client has. Then, all you have to do is solve it! This won’t be an abstract problem to test your knowledge of obscure algorithms or efficiency. Your job is to help solve a real world problem, and make a (hypothetical) person’s life better.
For your weekly project, you can use whatever language you want. Feel absolutely free to use something you already know to gain some more experience, or try something new.
You won’t be totally on your own. On Monday you’ll be guided through a series of questions that will help you plan out:
- What your finished project will look like
- What you need to learn about before you start
- What needs to come first
- When you’ll spend time on your project
Throughout the week you’ll get regular check-ins to see how you’re progressing. We’ll keep each other on track!
On Sunday night you’ll submit your solution. This can be as much or as little as you like. It can be just some screenshots or a video, and a brief description of what you did. You’ll also have an opportunity to reflect on what you learned, and how next week could go better. We’ll also share some inspiring examples of projects from the previous week.
If that sounds good to you, why don’t you join us?
