Program

We practice social software engineering: SSE. This activity is based on user interaction and collaboration. For this you must register with your e-mail and create a password. For guests and visitors we provide read only access to protect against spammers and trolls.

Our Program

We provide a training program to improve your skills and capabilities. Our curriculum is created by volunteers with experience in computer science and information technology. After training we offer free knowledge assessment exam for each class using a quiz of 30 questions.

If you pass the rating exams we recognize you as qualified software developer. This do not means anybody else will. So we provide an opportunity for you to work on our projects to consolidate your experience and prove your value. After this we endorse your activity on your profile page.

Your Activity

New members start with freelancer role. For this role we provide research classes and basic services. You can interact with other members and you can ask questions on community forum. After training you can start working for projects to gain experience.

Freelancers with experience will be invited to become instructors. In this role you can create new articles, video lectures and research projects. If you are prepared to become an instructor submit a support ticket or contact us on forum using a direct message.

Note: Instructors are volunteers who spend personal time in exchange for experience and reputation. You can be an Instructor only if you have time for research and study. We have no budget to invest for new content. 

Business Model

We operate with a minimum hosting cost. We pay for electricity and internet services. For future subscribers we offer premium services, project hosting and digital downloads.  We hope in the future this will cover our expenses and create a small investment found for new projects. 

Sage Code

Sage code (two words) is a component oriented programming methodology. We will create a collection of code snippets and project templates that you can download and use in your applications. It also represents our brand name. 

Sweat Equity

Instructors who create new articles, code snippets and project templates become stake holders. This is called “sweat equity“. Equity owners are our business partners. That is for your effort you gain reputation and prestige then you can influence our future development. 

Team Work

When you start a project you become project owner. You are in charge for leading the project team. After you have created a design document you can invite other members to join you. Here are some rules you must follow to be a successful project owner.

  • Written. All communication should be in written form; if this is not possible, any relevant communication should be transcribed or summarized in writing.
  • Complete. Communication should be comprehensive and to the extent possible, complete. Assumptions are made explicit and key conclusions are summarized.
  • Archived. All communication should get archived for search and later public review. Thus, previous conversations are available for posterity.
We are committed to sustain this plan for five years. After this time we will decide if the program was successful. If we have enough subscribers we will extend this program for another five years.
