Seeking collaborators for open-source projects! No previous experience necessary.

Hi Community!

I am seeking collaborators for web app project(s). The main motivation for this is to grow my portfolio. If you want to grow your portfolio and gain some experience, then let's team up!

The project(s) will be open-source and not for profit - as I don't want to deal with the legal hassles of starting a for-profit enterprise with someone. If we develop a good working relationship, then we can explore that option in the future.

The only requirements are:

  • You are interested in developing a web app;
  • And have been taking a course (or courses) on Treehouse that have provided you with the basic skills to do so.
  • It would be helpful if you know how to use Git for collaboration. Treehouse has a Git course.

This is not about executing a perfect project. It's about using the skills you have acquired (or are acquiring), learning, and building a portfolio.

The exact nature of the project hasn't been decided yet. I have many ideas. We'll toss around some ideas, then pick one. It doesn't have to be a large project; It can be a small one that we can execute in a couple days; Or one that will take weeks.

My skills are:

  • Web, UI design (experienced)
  • JavaScript & NodeJS (intermediate)
  • PHP (experienced)
  • Java (basic)
  • Android (basic)
  • Git (intermediate)
  • WordPress (intermediate)
  • Joomla (experienced)

Whatever expertise you bring, no matter how great or how small, will be appreciated.

Contact me if you are interested. Skype me at ronwadeskype anytime. Don't be shy!

I added you to Skype.

I've got some knowledge of Front-End, and I think I'm pretty good at Python stuff, and know a bit of Flask. Bu I also want to broaden my knowledge in Django and Node.

I hope we'll be able to work together! I think a buddy to work with is what miss when learning online ;)
