Code 52 - a new coding project every week


code52 started with a simple idea:

"A new coding project every week"

We want to build fun stuff in our spare time, give back to projects which need support, and create a community which is inclusive and engaging.

Who's behind this idea?

We are (in alphabetical order) Andrew Tobin, Brendan Forster and Paul Jenkins.

Particular goals we want to achieve:

  • introduce developers to open-source projects and help them learn the ropes.
  • contribute to projects across a range of technologies.
  • let the community determine where to focus efforts (?).

Why a week?

We're still nailing down the details at the moment, but in particular:

  • shorter timelines encourage achievable goals.
  • shorter timelines reduce the incentive to procrastinate.
  • more variety of projects to work on over a period of time.

How can I find out more?

You can nominate and vote for projects on our Uservoice site.

Discussions, ideas and suggestions can be posted on our TenderApp site.

And we're on Twitter!
