What is Chingu?

Chingu is a global collaboration platform and coding-cohort generator. We connect motivated learners with shared goals to learn, help and build together.

We help self-directed learners connect and build real projects in teams so they can level-up, meet new coder friends and gain work experience.

Global collaboration unleashed

People from 77 countries participated in Chinguโ€™s summer session! ๐ŸŒŽ

Summer session stats

๐Ÿ™Š233,000โ€“270,000 collaboration-related messages sent

๐Ÿ–ฅ 70+ MVPs/adventures

๐Ÿ“Ÿ500,000+ lines of code (thatโ€™s with the dependencies taken out).

๐Ÿ™Œ 500+ coders from 77 countries came together to build ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Chinguโ€™s new Moonshot ๐Ÿš€:

2020 finished team projects ๐Ÿ’ƒ by the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. ๐Ÿฏ

Note: weโ€™ll have more info on this Moonshot in an article published soon

The new Chingu platform will be here in the next month, and why not add a crazy goal to go with the launch?!

Weโ€™re going to have to bring thousands of people who are hungry to learn, help and build together to reach this goal. Weโ€™re also going to need to continue to rapidly improve our tools and system to make it feasible.

Is it possible?

Well, for anyone who has experienced the enormous adventure (and hardships) that can come with building as a team, the idea of facilitating 2020 of such adventures to completion will sound down-right rambunctious. Itโ€™ll probably be like climbing Mount Everest with a rather boisterous grizzly bear on our back, which is to say it shall not be easy.

But alas, where is the growth in easy? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think thatโ€™s how you grow. When thereโ€™s that moment of, โ€˜Wow, Iโ€™m not really sure we can do this,โ€™ and you push through those moments, thatโ€™s when you have a breakthrough.โ€

โ€” Marissa Mayer, early Googler and former Yahoo CEO

Thanks to everyone who made this possible

I want to give a big shout-out to every wonderful soul who contributed to the Chingu project over the summer โ€” from Cohort-Facilitators to Project Managers to writers to everyone courageous enough to step out of their comfort zone and level-up with others!

Learners from around 70% of the worldโ€™s countries have collaborated in a Chingu cohort so far and weโ€™ve collectively built 400+ projects together.

This is no small feat.

Iโ€™m still blown away daily by the collective friendliness, collaborative attitude and straight up HUNGER TO LEARN & BUILD of the people around here! Itโ€™s people like you that make this possible.

Now letโ€™s dive into some global projects, shall we?!

Note: I apologize in advance as I have inevitably made mistakes with links, missing projects ,names etc. Consider this article a work-in-progress as Iโ€™ll continue to edit and fix mistakes (please DM me if you have found any mistakes or missing pieces).

skyped with my teammate and had great connections, pinpointed what we might get stuck with early on and will work to overcome those hurdles as early as possible in the voyage

I got to deploy a project to production! Iโ€™m especially proud of this because I got to do everything, from the design, to the implementation, building a test suite, setting up a CI/CD tool with test, staging and production branches and automated deployment, to deployment etcโ€ฆ Itโ€™s been a thrilling ride!

Someone from our team got a developer job

We had our first pair programming session!

Both my team mates have been working actively to get our project completed

One of our member made a pollution bot.

Most of the work on the back end is complete and we are making progress with the front end and connecting the two.

Made my first merge to master and it worked! ๐Ÿ˜

Feeling more and more comfortable with GitHub and the team process

I finished a tough algorithm challenge

We have a good landing page using VueJs.

Overheard in Chingu Interlude #2

ziggysauce & Oliver De La Via graciously did a live talk during this session on Pair-Programming!

Started the 3rd week of my new web developer job.

We have a concept!

I got my first remote internship offer as an Intern Full-Stack Developer at SEJAAL Inc. Iโ€™m very excited for this opportunity!!

I was able to use Atom with teletype and the whole team was able to see all the changes I was making to the README. They even were able to add and modify the README at the same time.

I have built a functional backend and front end. User sign up and authentication.

Team nearly finished Act 1, and I am learning circuitry and neural networks.

amazing team, I really like that everyone get the things seriously!

We have talked a lot and the benefits of that commutation are coming through.

I created two React apps for the first time

We have our first kind of pair programming with all the teamates. We collaborate to write the final version of the for the project repo.

We settled on a project and started brainstorming the design

We made first commits to our repo

We completed our team charter

Finally nailed down the idea. Moving to the research so we can get the first sprint started wednesday

A member of our team had an interview for a job on Saturday, I hope she got the job.

Set up webpack and mongoDB models

Had first Skype Interview and about to attend my second face to face!

Have been metting a lot and our times usually match up so we can meet.

Everyone had a first commit

Made Team charter for the first time

we had our first hangouts meeting

Brainstormed feature for our project. Chose the stack to use for our project.

Nari has been a rockstar. She helped me use a React Modal component and taught me how to work with the files within React. She has also been a commit monster.

Iโ€™ve gotten really good at React Native. Finished my sprint tasks.

Figure out how to process data on the backend

Learned Phaser object collision logic by reviewing my team membersโ€™ codes

We connected the front and backend of our app successfully

Linked front end to back end, went over the code together and had fun in our video chat :)

The frontend team was able to post/get data from the backend and use it on the front!

I have a pair-programming session tomorrow

Last Friday I had an amazing pair programming session with @Ivan
