Monthly Challenge for July, 2022: Let's build in public, starting with Daily Standup!

During this month, let's learn to communicate what we're working on, show our development, and be confident and proud of any progress made.

Who can participate?

Virtual Coffee's goal is to support all developers, no matter where they are in their coding journey. This challenge is opened to non-coding projects as well. So if you want to talk about the projects you're doing in other areas of your life, we want to hear about it. We encourage all members to participate. This challenge can be done alone or in a group.

Getting Started

Making Progess

Share your progress in the #monthly-challenge channel in Slack. We have a slack reminder everyday, but feel free to post when you can. Some of our monthly-challenge team will also be holding video check-ins, so be on the lookout for those announcements!

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 #buildinpublic, a personal blog, a post on, etc.).

Sharing every time some work is added is a good idea, small progress is still progress. You don't 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".

Prepare for your demo. Would you prefer to pre-record your demo or share itlive? Pick your demo method and make a commitment for the final week.

What if I need help?

You can ask a question in the #help-and-pairing channel, get support in the #co-working-room channel, or ask at a coffee! You can also take advantage of our coffee table groups like our VC Indie-hackers and our Accountabilibuddies groups. Asking for help is part of the process.
