Summary

Let’s create a version of the popular 5 Year Q&A Journal specifically for programmers

Description
Let’s create a version of the popular 5 Year Q&A Journal specifically for programmers. The idea behind the 5 Year Journal is that you answer a specific question on each day of the year for 5 years. So each day you can see your answer to that question from exactly one year before. In this project, we want to create a version of the 5 Year Journal that contains mostly questions about programming and technology. Because this field is advancing so fast, by using the journal it will be very interesting to see the progress you made in your life and whether your predictions from one year ago became reality. The creation of this project is more about sharing ideas instead of programming. Anybody who has a sense of community and some experience in the area of computer science and engineering/technology can share their ideas and contribute to the final version of the journal, which will be released as a hardcover book. Also some designers will be needed. If the project gains momentum we might also build a team to develop a mobile app and website! As an example: Day #187: “What do you love about your job right now?” Day #223: “What new skill are you learning?” Day #340: “When was the last time you helped a fellow programmer and what was their challenge?” In total, we need at least 365 such questions. They should be very short and can be answered in 1-2 minutes. Anybody who contributes to this project will be mentioned in the book and get a free copy at the end. ++ or comment below if you are in! :) Slack channel will be posted in the comments.

No special skills needed, later web and mobile development

    Interesting idea. So basically it is an online diary right ? What type of users are you targeting ? programmers ?

    @mahaat I think a journal should be written offline with pen & paper, so it should be a book. But there could also be an additional app or website where you can write your answers. And yes, it should be targetted towards programmers.

    @3picName I just realized that your idea is creating book in first place. Sounds good idea to me.

    What do you planning to get this done ? Do you have experienced in Indesign ? I think it is suitable for this kind of job

    @mahaat I don't have much experience with InDesign (+ I don't have a license). My idea was to do it in Word but of course you could do more fancy designs with InDesign
