Hi all, soon I’m launching a community initiative called ‘Digital Skill Swap’ to facilitate people meeting up and teaching each other IT skills. The basic plan is to list the skills that you can teach, and pair up with someone who can teach you a new skill.
For example, if you know enough Ruby to spend 30 minutes or an hour teaching someone the basics and you want to learn how to get started with Go, you would find someone who knew Go to teach you in exchange for you teaching them Ruby. Could be anything though, digital graphics or Wordpress or whatever.
I’m in Jersey but I’ve left the descriptions of where to meet generic, so they would apply to both Jersey and Guernsey.
I have yet to put together a blog post announcing it so I’ll let things percolate here for a few days. I’ll likely need help administering it if this gets any traction, so for now if this interests you please check out the site digitalskillswap.com and if you want to make improvements and know Jekyll the source is here at cyber.je.
Any feedback is welcome, positive or negative.
