Today I published TeachMate.org source code on github. You can
download it, modify and contribute. I will review your code and, if
it’s okay, there’s a high probability I’ll merge it with my repo and
deploy to the server. There are few reasons why I decided to do so:
1. I’ve got really nothing to hide in TeachMate (found a bug? don’t
be evil - don’t hack it, mail it to me or fix it).
2. Community working on a project is more powerful than an
3. I like opensource and I think more web-projects should do this
(like Reddit did).
4. I’m looking for a partner to work on this and other projects.
And because choosing a partner isn’t easy, I think this should help.
5. I’m not a ruby-ninja, but some of you probably are. So, if you
ever find TeachMate idea cool enough to contribute code, I’d love to
review it and, maybe, learn something from it.
Just to make it clear: currently, I don’t make any money on TeachMate
(I actually only waste them), I started it as an educational project
to teach myself Rails, so please don’t be too tough on me for the
code. Getting project popular wasn’t the major issue, but I’d
appreciate if you write a few words about it in your blog.
