What will we be doing?

We will be a team of 6 members at most, and we will build a web application for 6 weeks while following Agile/Scrum principles. Only part-time commitment is required (10-20 hours/week), as most of us are busy.

The programming languages/libraries used will most likely be:

  • JavaScript
  • React
  • MERN stack

Of course, we can use other languages/libraries if the team chooses to do so.

What are the goals of the workshop?

Primary goals:

  • allow the participants to gain more team experience
  • exchange knowledge with each other
  • filling in any learning gaps and correcting bad practices
  • provide a networking opportunity to connect with other developers and designers
  • build lasting relationships even after the workshop ends

Secondary Goals:

  • successfully build a team project for our portfolio (yeah this is less important than the ones above)
  • help each other with interviews/job search (we can do interview practice and resume reviews with each other, but after the workshop)

General Requirements:

  • 10-20 hours/week availability
  • Communication skills
  • Self-driven learner
  • Willingness to work as a team and use collaboration tools
  • Humility and receptiveness to feedback
  • the closer you are to GMT +8, the better (but any time zone is okay)

Developer Requirements:

  • Capable of building a solo project (Tier 2 in Chingu - check comments)
  • React proficiency (MERN is nice to have, but not required)
  • CSS/SCSS and HTML proficiency

Designer Requirements:

  • Wireframing tools (Figma or anything similar)
  • Knowledge of web design principles
  • Willingness to work with a team of developers
