New section idea

VmortisVmortis Posts: 1Member

Hi, I’m new to the forum and i think i had an idea for a good sticky thread/ new section.

(In a hurry? jump to the arrow, 3rd paragraph.)

First let me explain why i had this idea: I'm a Computer Science student and at the last semester of the curse we have a class that's called "Project" and guess what its the goal there?? Yes, to make a project! And so it all started with the first question any student has when he must develop some project/assignment about anything he wants "What should it be about??"

From there i just went jumping forum to forum (IT, Programming, new tech...) reading some good posts and more important (than the information i gather) i realized that there’s actually a good community willing to help each other and that's what i need Help! In all those forums i saw a lot of quick ask and answer topics for new programmers, topics for the discussion of "all" kinds of hardware and software, job offerings... But i still didn't found what i would like to. And i think a lot of people in a similar situation could benefit from.

---> It would be like a thinking tank/brainstorming place for people with experience to give a kick start for those who are new to some level of IT (Programming, Web Design, Networking, Hardware related and so on...)

Goal: To help others jumping into the Job Market/achieve success.

Why: We already have the community and some forums even have a job offer section, they (you) already know whats needed to make it as .

How: As i said, maybe a sticky thread to start with and later a section divided by topics on the most needed skills.

I'll give you my example to start with:

I'd like to do a project related to OOP, (Object Oriented Programming) my preferred languages are Java and C++.

Putting it like this my be a little vague... but that’s exactly my point here. I want to show my skills in OOP and at the same time i would like to do something useful. Create some app/system for others, make a good "portfolio" so companies could see what i have to offer them. But I’m not sure what would or wouldn’t be a good idea to get my hands-on.

Instead of asking this in a general discussion area maybe there should be a place just for this. Where instead of people posting a job offer they would say "If you do , we can discuss a position in my company/office" or "At this moment may have great potential". And if some one needs tips on how to make his own project work for him (to profit or to get a job) this would be the place to ask that... to get some sense of direction.

I hope you can get the right picture here.

Thank you!

PS – I really want to do a project related to OOP, so u can reply about that. Also if you know some source of information like what i had described please refer it because i should have missed it on my research.

    Hi,

    This runs along similar lines to something we are planning in the future, but this is different enough to warrant its own section, I like the idea!

    Let me speak to the team and we'll come up with a section for this as soon as possible.

    Regards,

    Lee
