Launch Devmates: Challenges

alexwawl

Hello Indie Hackers👋,
I'm working on Devmates.co.
We are resolving daily coding problems which asked by top tech companies together. We share our solutions, give some help if anyone stuck, support each other and just hang out together on the internet. 🍻☕️💬

I decided to start working on Challenges because I believe that the best way to learn is learning by doing. So I want to make some challenges on a weekly basis and work on something interesting together. You can collaborate with someone or do everything by yourself.
Devmates Challenges
Challenges - micro-projects where you can learn new technologies, frameworks, languages, API, algorithms, approaches, etc. I hope it gives a chance for juniors developers to practice coding on some real projects. Senior engineers can learn something new by doing.
For example, they can try to resolve it using a new language or framework. Challenges don’t have any language/framework/technology restrictions so you can resolve any problem using any tools.

My motivation is to build a community around it and allow people to learn something new by making small projects. If someone stuck they can ask questions to people who are also working on the same “tasks” and get feedback.

Right now you can see the first challenge named "Conway's Game of Life". It's a kind of classic coding problem that can be implemented in different ways and can be asked in real interviews. It's not just plain "algorithmic" problem, you should visualize it or adding some additional "behavior". It's a kind of "test" version of challenges but in the future, I want to provide more interesting ideas.

So if you are working on some APIs, frameworks, etc let me know. Maybe we can collaborate and I can provide interesting challenges based on your Project. I think it's a great idea and would love to hear your feedback.
