Member-defined Projects

If you already have a project that matches the attributes of the tier you've chosen for yourself you can submit it using the Solo Project Completion Form.

When you submit your project you'll need to provide URL's for:

  • the publicly accessable repository containing your project (eg. Github).
  • the running version of your project if you have deployed it (eg. Github Pages, Netlify, etc.).

If you don't already have a project create one using our specifications.

Solo Project Tips

  1. It is more important to complete the project than it is to add features since completion is require before you can advance to the Voyage Project.
  2. Concentrate on completing the required tasks for your tier and then work on bonus tasks only if time permits. Keep in mind that advancing to the Voyage phase of the Cohort depends on the completion of the requred tasks listed in the project repo we've provided.
  3. Choose tools you are comfortable and productive with. In the limited time available to complete the Solo Project it's not a good idea to try to use something you don't already know.
  4. Unless otherwise noted in the required tasks for you tiers Solo Project the languages, tools, libraries, and frameworks you use are up to you. For example, all of the following approaches are acceptable paths to a successful project:
    • Using any language for web development, not just Javascript
    • Using Vanilla JS instead of a library or framework
    • Using a framework of your choice like React or Vue
    • Using a boilerplate or generator like Create React App (CRA)
    • Using a CSS library or creating your own CSS
  5. Your repo should contain a well written readme.
  6. Remember that your app should run error-free. There should be no errors in the browser or server console logs.
  7. Identify and handle edge cases
  8. You should deploy your app to a server accessible from the Internet for testing, demonstration, and to allow the Chingu team to evaluate it.
  9. Chingu is all about collaborative learning and supporting each other as we level up! Use our Discord channels to get help and advice.
