How many of you are willing to dedicate 1 hour/day for CE Project?

CEans,

We've been trying our hands at CE projects for a long time. Since we all are geographically separated, we want to start with a software project. The success of any project depends on dedication & persistence of members working on the project.

For us to make a successful project (We'll think big, but start small!) we need a dedicated team comprising of minimum three engineers [and maximum five engineers]. I wish to know how many of you would be willing to build a great CE software product from scratch.

Before you say "aye", let me talk about few things -

1. Our project is not going to be typical projects that you've done in your college or at workplace.
2. All the team members must 'love' what we are doing and be very proactive in contributing.
3. The team should be focused on completing the project and challenge themselves to execute their own tasks well before deadlines set by themselves.
4. There should not be any ego clashes between the team members.
5. There must be coordination among the team members [through email, IM, online conferences etc.]
6. There won't be any boss to judge the progress or assign the task [seriously, do we really need someone to tell what to do?]. Of course, someone can be a coordinator to sync up the tasks among team members.]
7. High level of self discipline is expected.
8. Team members should be very open to accepting suggestions & feedback from other members.

Now given these conditions, how many of you would be willing to work on a CE Project?

Its okay even if we do not get even a single response to this post. Don't say 'I will/can try' - it doesn't help. Don't say yes unless you are passionate and excited about working on CE Project.

In the end, you may look forward to following benefits of working on a CE project -

1. Proud feeling of creation & achievement.
2. Tremendous learning.
3. World-wide fame.
4. Pioneering work in the world of CE.

So, think before you post your response. 😀 [​IMG]

There will be many exams in due course of time. Will you still be able to work on CE Project? If yes, why can't we start next week?

[PS: We aren't starting immediately. The team will be formally formed for the project.]

A very good start but before saying 'aye' I would like to know answers of few questions:

1. About that CE software product.
2. Suppose if a person cannot devote 1 hour per day on CE project but can devote many hours on weekends or any holidays.Will that work?

Yes shalini the goal is to finish your by the deadline.

I'm dedicating more than 1 hour for the CE-IM Big K, I'm doing all my work on parallel & I'm enjoying working on different projects in the same time, especially It's the first time for me to do a hard work Socket programming (driving me crazy), I don't have any goals from the CE-IM or any CE project except this $10,000 😛

yes, I'm sure that most would find it difficult to put in one hour everyday. It'd be better to restrict it to the time put in on a weekly basis. For example, 7 hours per week would be better than one hour daily. Or so I feel.

And about the software product, well, I do know some programming but I dont think that'll be enough to develop a product, per se. So, persons who dont know software development as of now should also be allowed to participate.

Is this agreed?

I think its possible to put 1 hour a day, but sometimes we procrastinate 😉

Like others have mentioned, hours on a weekly basis may work better in some cases.

1. It could be any project that we will take up. The aim of this thread is to know how many of our CEans would be willing to take up the project seriously and build a software from ground up.

2. I do not want to discourage anyone. I believe working on weekends won't work. If you miss one weekend because you have lot of work at office; the whole project will have a tremendous setback.

3. I am specifically talking about a group of 3-5 engineers who will dedicate 1 hour daily so that we make process every day, issues get resolve in quickest possible time etc.

4. In my opinion, the projects like these will always have a risk of losing the momentum. Since there will not be any direct monitoring or obligation to complete the tasks, we want to be extremely careful in selecting the team members.

5. In the end, I am sure each one of us wants 1 completed project - from idea to reality. We all will have to put in more efforts to make this happen.

I am evaluating various ideas to make this happen. Its a great feeling to see the response. I can see things happening for real in next couple of months.

I forgot to add :-

1. For the software project; we'll need engineers who love to code and have done some coding on their own [not for college projects or professional work]. We are willing to wait until we find them.

2. We will make sure that the core team shares its work with others through the forum. So others may join the development. If you love programming and want to be a part of the core team for CE Projects, get started now.

3. I am sorry if my posts offend anyone. I am very keen on getting the things done.

I love to be a part of it. but as a newbie
Although I can repair, build stuff, use computers and all tht, software programming is a part tht I wish I am good at, but due to limited time and components I was held back, during my study years.
Now components and softwares are at my finger tip. So I am good to go.
I would love to learn software and be part of you guys.
I have resources, and I can at least give one hour to a project each day.
And if I know the stuff I will give myself to it. Well!! that's me 😁

I am always trying to learn something new.
Please put me in a corner, and I will be very obedient. OK ;-)

I am in for LFS project. i really dont know why i am getting so obsesses with it.
I am getting my hands on LFS studying linux admistrative tasks for nearly 2 hrs a day. I have not yet started looking at shells scripting

I dont think i will not be able to spend 1 hr a day, but in worse case I might not ( only when my sem begins and I need to attend evening college)

Good to hear that! I'd want to get into LFS as well, but I'm super swamped with work. But, I'll soon buy an old computer (Pentium II) from my friend for some experimental stuff, will use it for Linux purposes.

Biggie, perhaps we can create a universal list of which members are doing or planning to do a specific project, and how many hours a week they are working on it? Just for visualization purposes 😉
10 years ago
Ash, that is the plan 😉 ! This thread will be handy when we start selecting members for the project.

Another point: We have varied skill-set here. If the software needs to be done in Java; we'll need Java folks if it's in PHP, we'll need people who know PHP in & out.

We have not yet decided the project. That will be done at a later stage. I hope to see more response to this thread. 😀

thats actaully good. I am learning it up in dual boot in my existign laptop.I am sure if one fine day i get see that grub has failed and I have lost both the OS.
Do let me know when you will be a little free to start off.
I bet this would be too interesting to let go.

Hi its exciting to hear this .
and YES i could easily contribute 1 hr by reducing 1 hr sleep its so simple to me , but people talking about software and prior knowledge cool that i don't have much . I know SQL and Language C nothing more if you can give me the technology a 15 day before you start the project i will be ready learning IN and OUT.
I am a software tester in my organization so i can test the software product as well.
So Seriously i can spend 1 hr but let me know the technology before 15 days such that i don't want to be a newbie in this super project want to contribute something .
waiting for your opinion!!!😎😎😎😎

Good response so far. I think we can kick-off a small project (a software product). As I see, lot of CEans are from Banaglore. How about CEans from Bangalore coming together to get this started.

There will be minimum project management and maximum engineering. I'm sure it's going to be fun.

Guys, this thread is not an official thread to select CEans. I started only to see how many of us would be willing to work on any project we may initiate in future.

Yes, be assured that all our projects will be interesting err... awesome! 😀 I'm currently focused on expanding CE's reach. However, if few of us just can't wait, brainstorm on a simple project idea and get started.

Hello Big K!

can you please tell what you mean by "done some coding on their own [not for college projects or professional work]".

Although i am final year student but as per my schedule i an devote one hour daily.And i am very much interested in becoming a part of this team.

We'd include engineers who can think on their own, are passionate about solving tough problems.

We'd not trust people who simply say "I can" but rather, we'd be looking to include people will say "I have".

Of course. As you are aware, there's absolutely no discrimination on CE. Whether you are a student, a professional or a school dropout - everyone is welcome as long as they can bring value.

I guess that'll be the criteria we'll follow while hiring employees for CrazyEngineers.

Are you working on this project?or it has already completed??

No we haven't launched any project yet. Its high time though to have few of us passionate about making a small project successful and then building bigger and bigger project.

Can we have 2-3 (or more) of us think about a small web based project and then collaborate online to make it successful?

PS: CE Labs invites all such project initiatives.
