During this month, the idea is to learn to communicate around a project as you demo it, show the finished product or show the finished parts, give confidence and learn to be proud of any progress made.
Let's demo in public!
Monday of each week, set the goals for that week and by Friday review/check-in with those goals. We will be using the slack channel for this purpose.
There will be two ways for participants to demo their projects:
Virtual Coffee's goal is to support all developers, no matter where they are in their coding journey. We encourage all members to participate. This challenge can be done alone or in a group.
Share your progress in the #monthly-challenge channel in Slack. While no other platform is imposed, it can be a good idea to also share on social media for more reach but only if you are comfortable to do so (Twitter using -or not- the hashtag #VCMonthlyChallenge, a personal blog, a post on DEV.to, you get the idea)
Sharing every time some work is added is a good idea, small progress is still progress. No need to write a detailed blog post: a 140 characters Tweet can be enough. For example: "Today I added some styling. I used Bootstrap and implemented some cards to display the users in the home page".
You can ask a question in the #help-and-pairing VC channel, get 1:1 help during Office Hours (check #office-hours channel), join the VC co-working room. Asking for help is part of the process!
And remember, we're always here to help ❤️
