    @waciumawanjohi One discord I really enjoy is Obsidian.md's community server. They have three pinned channels (faq, releases, announcements). They also have a general channel which doubles as their welcome channel.
    I've also seen other servers that prompt an initial Code of Conduct page and bot that you must agree to before you're given access to the rest of the server.
    See you all on discord!

    @waciumawanjohi I'm also trying to get into OMSCS, but I won't be applying until February for fall 2021. Hopefully I'll have completed nand2tetris by then
    waciumawanjohi
    @waciumawanjohi
    That's great. Yes, completing Nand2Tetris is a good idea. What I've read about students who were not accepted was that the school often pairs rejections with advice to take an upper level CS course and to apply again. The OMSCS subreddit has a pinned admissions thread every semester that's a trove of information.

    Hello I finished the first specialization python for every body on coursera, it was nice course

    @waciumawanjohi
    Hi @scor123 Congrats on finishing Py4E! Sounds like you're totally prepped for your next course. You'll notice that the curriculum now lists a Discord server. If you follow this link you'll find chat rooms for each course. There's more activity there than we've ever had with the Gitter. https://discord.gg/5pUhfpX

    Hello guys! Just finished the final project for the course How to Code: Simple Data. It would be awesome to have some feedback on it: https://github.com/cgbarreto/racket-space-invaders

    @waciumawanjohi
    Hi @cgbarreto
    You'll find more students online in OSSU's Discord server. https://discord.gg/5pUhfpX
    Also, please ensure that you are following the Honor Code of the courses that you are taking. A number of courses' codes do not allow students to post large end of course projects that are checked by an autograder. (Conversely, many courses do allow students to share large open ended projects that aren't autograded)

    @cgbarreto
    Hi @waciumawanjohi ! Thanks for the advice, checking the honor code it's clear that I can't post the code, by the way, already took it down. I’ll check the discord server

    Never mind. It was actually an issue with my discord account.

    Hey guys! I started with OSSU the end of july. Unfortunately I had to take a break because of exams in med school. Now, I'm back I noticed that the curriculum is slightly changed? Now, I have to do introdution to programming and introduction to computer science. So I can't choose between the two anymore? And what happend with the missing curriculum?

    @waciumawanjohi
    @naomi889 Similar to any school, the curriculum is in development and changes based on student feedback and course availability. If you'd like to freeze the curriculum in time, you can create a fork. Once you do so you can even roll your fork back to any earlier commit that you'd like. https://docs.github.com/en/github/getting-started-with-github/fork-a-repo

    @Alaharon123
    To answer those specifically though, intro was simplified to make it more clear what to do and that did result in removing a choice. Missing Semester was moved later in the curriculum where it's more suited
    Note that conversation these days is happening on the discord rather than the gitter. You can find links to the discord on the github

    @waciumawanjohi can you kindly provide me the link to the OMSCS. I want to check it out and look at their requirements. Thank you.

    @naomi889
    Okay, thank you @waciumawanjohi @Alaharon123 !! I think I will just start over again since I didn't get that far yet.

    tweedeviking Hey Ho,
    I am Manuel. For the last 12 years I have been working as a mobile developer, mostly on iOS.
    In all those years I worked in teams that claimed to be agile. But it never felt agile. Agile as in "Agility: The ability to perform changes fast"
    And especially during my last 2 jobs I started wondering, how ANYBODY should be expected to be agile when at the same time we are trapped in a messy pile of shit that we cutely name "Spaghetti Code".
    I think we should rename it "Barb Wire Code".
    So in the past year I have been working on an architecture that — I believe — should enable a more agile development process. From the way the code is structured to the way data flows through it and the ability to easily represent those codes in agile processes. I do believe that it enables steady development speed for the whole lifetime of a software project.
    It comes with a powerful modular concept that stretches throughout the app where each module can have its own DSL and all modules are independent, connected by a simple but expressive messaging system.

    I am looking for feedback from developers, interested in such topics. I invite you to join the channel "agile architecture" (#agilearchitecture:matrix.org). (bearbeitet)

    Do you have an example of when it popped up?
    Or rather, could you show the lines where you got the error.

    Hello everyone,
    I am a BSc Computer Science graduate from University of The Gambia where am currently working as a software developer. It's a young university founded in 1999.
    My interest is mainly around security and trust. Which direct me towards Blockchain technology use to address corruption and promote good governance.
    My the computer science department at my university is relatively small and don't have any expert in the area of blockchain. Looking for a supervisor to help me pursuit my research interest.
    waciumawanjohi
    @waciumawanjohi
    Hi @alagiesellu It's great to hear about your studies! This Gitter channel isn't used much anymore. I recommend you post in the OSSU discord: https://discord.gg/5pUhfpX
    To set expectations, most OSSU participants are trying to reach the goal that you have already achieved (learn the material of an undergraduate CS degree). But there may be someone with a connection to a blockchain expert.
