Who would like to make a group project in a week?

I thought it would be fun and different to do a group collaboration on a small project that uses one or more public API's. The general idea would be to bring a small group together that can have various strong suits, brain storm, and put something together. This could be something everyone uses in their portfolio to refer to for future clients or employers, or if it's something super interesting, we can come up with ways to monetize and share the revenue.

I'm full stack ASPNET, but I can learn and use just about any piece of tech. I'm also quite capable in javascript and react.

The idea isn't just limited to web developers, UX/UI wizzes that can do mock ups and content creators are most welcome to participate. I think this is a great opportunity to learn different things from different people.

Let me know if interested; and we can create a group to schedule a brainstorm session and do project planning.

    Great idea, David! Putting our brains/skills together- we could easily make something very unique. How can I join?

    How about around the aws apis?

    1. 1

      Any apis could be brought up for discussion. I have several links to free public apis with decent rate limits. One that's worthwhile is a github page public-apis. I think there's about a 100 on that page alone with many different categories.

    Any room for a marketing/sales nerd? 😬


    ✅ Cognitive Behavioral Marketing Strategy
    ✅ Conversion Copywriting (Landing pages, sales pages, email marketing etc)
    ✅ Team Optimization (Discovering, developing and utilizing team member strengths)
    ✅ Sales (qualifying, follow-up, closing deals)

      Definitely. I've been solo-developing for so long that I really haven't used any communication tools, and I know such a project as this will push me out of that comfort zone. Last time I used Slack was in 2017 when I attended a coding bootcamp. What's the trend these days? Is it still Slack because I can create an account and group? I'll be back to gather everyone up who's interested in another day.

          Just posted up the link: https://join.slack.com/t/newworkspace-3km5342/shared_invite/zt-l01s9gdf-hOhC8nXmeWYN63CM0OsW~g

          Feel free to advise on anything about Slack that would benefit as I used it for only about 2 weeks when I did use it.
