Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Build a gamified "Duolingo-esque" app for students to learn data structures and algorithms

Using React, Redux, Node.js, MongoDB, and an authentication library of your choice, we can work together to create a platform for students to learn the foundational pieces of computer science! We can first determine what our "P0" (priority zero) requirements are - things like streaks, lesson modules, games/exercises, and weekly reinforcement lessons. After we agree on which pieces we want to build, we can design a few of the main flows (either by sketching on good ol' pen and paper, or using software like Figma). After that, we get into the coding, first building the data and backend layer, and then wiring up the frontend to display and write information.

Building a Product/Business Tracker

There are so many trackers out there - Trello, JIRA,, etc, but they just don't for what you want for your business or startup. Together, we can identify what you want from your tracker (do you want to track business goals as well as engineering/coding goals) and build a tracking/planning platform that is bespoke to your needs!
