TechAtHome: A 30 Days Study Jam

About this event

Sequel to the furthering of the #ASUU Strike and the list of events we have for this session, we are bringing you a #TechAtHome experience

The #TechAtHome program will be practical - as are our previous programs - but it will be solely dependent on you. The program takes the form of a 30 Days Study Jam and will be available in Streams coordinated by Stream Leaders.

A Stream can be a Programming Language, a JavaScript Framework, a concept under a particular stack, Mastering a tool, etc. Participants will tweet their daily work using provided hashtags to create awareness and keep conversations going.

At specific timestamps, there will be a Google Meets call for each stream, where stream leaders and appointed speakers can do checkups, answer questions, give a demo, etc.

To become a stream leader, you simply have to:

👉🏻 Select a concept to stream on that you know people would be interested in

👉🏻 Get a minimum of 2 people to assist you in managing that stream should in case you were absent

👉🏻 Pitch the stream details to any of the Core Team members

👉🏻 Set a 30-day path with resources to guide you and whoever joins your stream


To become a stream member you simply have to:

👉🏻 Decide which stream(s) to follow

👉🏻 Follow the path by using provided resources

👉🏻 Tweet along with your fellow streamers

GUIDE TO STARTING A STREAM

Streams will span for 30 Days. The streams will focus on specific concepts, not broad ones, because of the 30-day timeframe.

Good examples of streams include:

1. Let's Learn Laravel (a Framework)

2. How to Use Docker (a Tool) for Deployment (a purpose)

3. Pentesting with Burpsuite

4. Typescript in Thirty Days (a language)

5. Coding Interview Preparation


Bad Examples include:

1. Backend Web Development (too broad)

2. Machine Learning Engineering (too broad)

3. DevOps (too broad)


Notes:

👉🏻 These are not yet available streams, so you have to pitch them again if you want to lead a stream

👉🏻 You can follow one or more streams, although it is advisable to follow one or two, to help you learn better.

👉🏻 Nobody is responsible for anybody's learning outcome, so nobody will force you to be consistent with your daily learning

👉🏻 If there's a stream that people would like to join and it doesn't exist, feel free to bring it to our notice whether or not you plan to lead the stream.

👉🏻 Each stream will have a Google Meets link attached to it for Saturday meetings, as well as the Stream Leader's name.

👉🏻 You don't have to be an expert to lead a stream. You can be learning that concept from scratch too. However, you need to be good enough to stay consistent and answer questions if you can

👉🏻 You can pitch a stream publicly or privately
