so after a full month of development - almost 2 hours a day only of coding, hiring a professional designer to design the landing page. now, MVP of nerdmentors is ready, it is not a perfect system, not even rich in features, but might be good enough to see if we are on the right track with the bare minimum amount of features that can test some of our hypothesis. at the time of writing this update, there is still minor UI tweaks to be done, but that should be ready in matter of hours, then we will invite real users to test our application, wish me and @yousefjoe good luck in our beta testing phase.
"so, Udacity suddenly decide to stop paying for mentors on its nanodegrees" my co-founder said. this happened at the same time of COVID-19 was widely spreading all over the globe. many peoplew was staying at home than ever, having more free time and eager to learn more. at the same time, other experienced individuals needed another income channel. at this point, we decided we should build our own mentoring platform, we already had all the skills needed for building the platform or even giving the initial seed mentoring services in UI UX, backend development and Mobile development.
