Announcing India's First Projects Showcase App On CrazyEngineers!

    Computer Science

    We are super-excited to reveal what we’ve been working hard for the past several weeks; and we believe it’s India’s first of its kind!

    What is it anyway?

    As engineers, you must have worked on academic or hobby engineering projects. 99.99% of these projects never get the publicity they deserve. For example, if you worked on a mini or major project as a part of engineering curriculum, the project gets submitted to the college or University and dies a silent death.
    We want to change that!
    The basic idea is that if you’ve already spent so much time working on your academic or hobby project; why not show it to the world? No matter if the project is 100% complete or still in progress; all you need to do is upload it to our projects showcase and let the world see what you’ve been working on.

    What’s In It For You?

    We believe this has not been done before or at least at the scale we are planning and it benefits EVERYONE -
    • Industry stalwarts view your project and contact you for further development. May offer you job.
    • You may get funding for your project - if you want to develop it further.
    • Ability to turn your project into commercial venture.
    • Get national and international exposure in over 180 countries.
    • Get ideas for your next mini project or major project.
    • Get help from others while working on your project
    • Get reviews and comments on your project
    If not the above,
    • You don’t have to work on developing a dedicated webpage/site for your project
    • Share the knowledge and help your juniors and peers
    • Collaborate with other engineers from all over the world
    • …and help build one of its kind showcase for academic / hobby / DIY engineering projects.
    We are looking forward to seeing all the small and big projects going live over the next few months.
    If you have any questions and comments about the all new Projects App, do share them with us in comments below.

      I am not in favor of this feature. You are directly/indirectly spoon-feeding the amateurs who are just in search of free stuff across the internet for their college submissions. Any sensible person will never make his sweat and blood undertakings out on open forums for the whole world to copy them.

      If you are inspired by Kickstarter for this idea, Kickstarter doesn't give code pdfs free for download.

      A better way will be to open discussions for the same where people will actually have to use their brains and come up with a solution. The kind of crowd we are having recently is of project-ideas/ready-made-projects seeking public and you just offered it on a silver platter.

      Document never contains code and, even if it is, something called open-source :coffee:
      Git-Hub, codePen, Google Code etc.

      Nobody is asking the project-uploaders to make the project available for download.
      It is just an open platform ready to be used in the best possible way.
      We have asked everyone to showcase the projects in their name. They are the owners of their own project page. They are recognized for their efforts by thousands of readers.
      I know so many people who have developed great projects, but the idea dies down with the lack of exposure that their projects get. :thumbsup:
      Let us hope to see some of the awesomest projects to get featured on our global platform.

      @Ankita Katdare : I get your intention for launching this but also see that the chances of abuse here are more than its proper utilization. Also even if its uploaded using your real name, whos digitally signing the codes so that they don't get misused. And abusers will always copy paste everything they get their hands on. Please see that it doesn't have adverse effect. Idea is noble but I am worried about its implementation. I have a lot of such open-source ready projects to share, I don't share because rather than contributing, people scam it out.

      @Nayan Goenka i agree to your, but i belive open source will help people to explore, help and learn.

      Nayan, has put a practical issue forth.Nevertheless git-hub has lot of open-source projects and any one who wants to contribute can fork and contribute , but I don't think many have been misused. Lets hope this feature doesnot get misused.

      Pardon me but I have to laugh on this. :D

      Anyways, If a user wanna leech, he'll do it anyhow. If not CE then anyother website or technical forum. Not publishing source code or opening entire project won't decrease frequency of leechineers ;)

      Embrace Openness! :cean:The world needs to be more open than closed.
      Let us try to encourage more and more people to come together in sharing their creations and empowering people so that they create beautiful companies out of innovative projects.

      Yeah! Let's say an open project is downloaded by 100 people, 95 of 'em will copy-paste the project - no shit, but 5 will surely fork the project, iterate the flaws, add some interesting features & make the project more innovative.
      That is sole purpose of open-ness : Infinite Innovation opportunity.

      More heads, more innovation. :thumsup:

      guys just show the working of your projects not the principle you used for it just tell tje ides not the procedure to gain it.
      if any body interested he will take forword to that guy who has the idea is this not right?
      also the security is helpfull so make the thread so secure that no body can download it without the permission of uploader. what you say guys?
      i think this will solve all the doubts of @ceans an a idea for the staff.

      It's 'showcase', folks. Not 'Marketplace'.

      I am in..
      I will surely post my ongoing project details.
      I know that i am not the first person to do it but I will work hard to get better results...

      I agree, It's a showcase place for your awesome talent.
      However at the same time we can not bound someone not to share the source code. If they do good, if not very good.

      The best part is their idea will ignite thought of millions other ideas and that's how technology grows.

      My Thumbs-up to this.
