Online Code learning tool, Programr pivots to crowdsourcing model
We earlier profiled Programr, a super cool platform that enables users to write, compile and run piece of code online. The Pune based startup has now pivoted to a crowdsourcing model for generating interactive coding examples & exercises for its learning zone. Essentially, users now contribute their own bite-sized examples and exercises in 5-10 minutes each. Other users then upvote the good content such that the best content bubbles up to the top in the learning zones.
How has the pivot been working out with Programr?
Cofounder Rajesh Moorjani shares that since this month, Programr have received immense contributions from developers, faculty and students from around the world: 5500+ examples, 1200+ exercises and 700+ projects have been already contributed just in the last 3 weeks. The company expects this to double in the next 2 months.
But what about the quality of the content coming in?
Rajesh mentions that Programr has a dedicated team of 5 engineers that tests, approves and organizes each piece of contributed content within 24 hours of it being contributed.
If you are coder, do give Programr a spin and share your comments. Very recently, Bangalore based CodeLearn raised angel funding from France based Kima Ventures.
