Motivating and helping each other by forming small teams/pairs of devs who look after each other. No one likes to code alone

I sometimes find it very hard to find motivation to learn stuff. I've also been seeing a rise in rants about ppl talking about motivation. The aim here is to be productive. Help each other. If we have people to look up to, people to share what we're making or learning, we might be more compelled to do so, cuz we have people to impress. If you feel that you are alone and your peers don't understand you, this might be what you want. How: Initial thoughts are to get as many people on board, then randomly group them into teams of 4 OR make random pairs( or make teams based on interests. Whatever suits you). The teams don't have to be similarly skilled, just loyal to their teammates.(the teams aren't communicating with other teams to be clear). They will talk about their current projects or what they are learning and basically check up on each other. The checking up on each other part is important. Not to be confused with teams working on a single thing or spamming each other. There can be a central place to control teams where all the members are present, so if someone wants to switch teams, offer a suggestion, hopefully not spam,it can be done with ease. This is a collab, we can discuss the rules and the details, if people are interested.

    Okay I'm new here and i think i'm missing something. How exactly do i add members to a collab? Are we supposed to link to external site or discuss in comment section?

    I'm thinking a slack workplace would be a good choice to do this sort of thing. Members could talk in different channels and it'll be easy to manage. Even if we don't have many ppl it'll be a good start.
    Just to rephrase the idea is to check up on other people. One could start with asking what others are up to, and basically talk about the shitstorm of things that happen. Members should have a basic trust between them and can maybe help each other out too!

    Again, not many people per channel cuz we dont want spam and i think we should also talk about the rules, IF this happens.

    I think this will benefit new learners more than actual devs but idk, maybe devs will find it interesting too?
