I’ve got an idea I’d like to test out. If you’re the eager early-adopter type, read on.
I’d like to create a study group of 5-10 developers who are super passionate about improving their programming skills.
If you’d like to join, I’m going to ask you to agree to the following:
Group members must be willing to invest a minimum of 4 hours each week in improving their skills. You will be asked to complete programming challenges, take part in remote pairing sessions, do review on each others’ code, and take part in occasional Google Hangouts.
I want this group to have time to build cohesions and strong relationships, so you must agree to participate for the next 3 months (this means you must also remain subscribed to Prime during this time).
You must take be comfortable taking charge of your own learning. I plan to help guide this group from a distance, but I will not be active member.
If the above commitments sound more exciting than daunting, reply in this thread and state your interest.
I’d like to keep this first experiment small, so I won’t be able to accept everyone. I’ll likely do a bit of screening to make sure people in the group have similar goals, and are likely to contribute actively. However, rest assured that if this first attempt is a success, we’ll start additional groups.
Feel free to post any questions you have.
