Knowledge Genome Project (Community-designed certifications)
Iím working on a wiki-like learning measurement project and would love your help finding potential contributors.
Itís called the Knowledge Genome Project and weíre creating open learning certifications to measure programmer expertise. The goal is to create an easy way to continuously assess learners and compare the success of different learning paths/materials. Our end goal is to map out all of human knowledge, but the initial phase of the project is focused on mapping the Computer Programming ďChromosomeĒ.
Our model of learning measurement has been in the works for a few years, but the community itself is in a very early phase right now. Weíre looking for self-professed expert programmers to help map out the subjects and concepts that make up programming knowledge. Weíre mostly looking for folks to contribute their expertise and help write questions, not necessarily writing code. (Although there will inevitably be some code that needs writing.)
Itís going to be really fun project. If you know anyone who might be interested, please pass this info along.
