During this quarter, I will be building and launching an open source Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product in the open. During the course of the next six weeks, I will be pair-programming and learning with many guests on my stream to build and ship 🚢 this product.
I am building an open source, free Github App to allow teachers and content creators to turn their markdown-based tutorials into interactive learning experiences on Github!
Students can follow a friendly Github bot as it guides them through the learning journey through Issues and Pull Requests within their own repo.
Whenever I learn something by following a tutorial, I only absorb 25% of what the tutorial covers. I want to create a medium where content creators can tailor their existing tutorials for students like me who learn by doing.
Github offers a similar service through (lab.github.com), but the code is closed source and contributors aren't able to add features. This is why we want to build the open-source alternative.
I will be pairing with folks of various expertise to build my product. I will be inviting Product Managers, UI/UX experts, Community Builders, Students, and fellow Developer Advocates to share their expertise to build and ship features of the product.
