Anyone want to make a buddy programme for motivation and helping one another?

So I'm currently following the intermediate iOS development track and have been getting on okay with it. However, I feel like it would be a great idea to get in touch with some other people who are in a similar position in their iOS journey to stay extra motivated and to share and learn from one another.

I'm trying to take my learning as seriously as possible and it would be great to get to know a few other people who are keen to do the same.

Does anyone fancy making a mini buddy programme to get a little bit more social pressure to get working properly? Slack/email/Facebook group or whatever medium people think will work best?

You can count me in :) I have finished Beginning track and right now I'm practising things which I didn't understand fully before moving to Intermediate track
I definitely wouldn't go for an e-mail. I would choose between Slack, Facebook, Discord and Skype, depending on what we actually want. I have never used Slack so I don't know what it's like. Anyway, we can choose between having different discussions separated (Facebook, where every post is like a new topic), pure group chat (Skype) or slightly advanced group chat, where we can have several "chats" open, e.g. for different topics (Discord)

This sounds like a good idea. I'm currently working on closure section in Intermediate IOS development track. As far as I'm aware theres no Direct messaging on Treehouse but If you'd like to contact me and maybe discuss this a bit more feel free to add me on skype @ jp.morgan and maybe we could work something out
