FOSSCoop - a platform for student cooperative playground
FOSScoop is a web platform which covers theory and practice exercises, to help anyone in the development of coding skills.
About this Project
This project is part of the 2020 GNOME Community Engagement Challenge and meant for use by the FOSSCoop, a platform for student cooperative playground team, Challenge organizers, and Challenge judges.
The 2020 GNOME Community Engagement Challenge is a three-part challenge created in partnership with Endless. The Challenge encourages individuals or teams to create stimulating ideas that will connect the next generation of coders to the FOSS community and keep them involved for years to come.

FOSSCoop, a platform for student cooperative playground
FOSScoop is a web platform which covers theory and practice exercises, to help anyone in the development of coding skills. The theory is addressed in the Wiki section of our platform, in which articles explaining basic concepts of programming, Open Source, FOSS, GNU/Linux are gathered. The wiki is divided in three levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced. A Q/A section is available, where people can ask questions, express doubts, where mutual help is exercised.
The practice exercises are encouraged in the core section of our platform: the Bulletin Board. Here, new challenges are listed and constantly added. Specific challenges are designed for beginners, leveraging on children-related topics to stimulate curiosity in young age coders. Their completion is rewarded according to a system of ratings and achievements.
