Hi, I'm Chance! 

I'll keep it simple. I have been designing/organizing/facilitating remote javascript coding cohorts since early 2017. Before that, I lived in Seoul and dabbled in UX design. I like to build, so soon after studying UX design, I wanted to start building things and began coding. Fast-forward, I got into the "Harvard of Coding bootcamps" but after doing the pre-bootcamp decided it wasn't for me. I went to FreeCodeCamp instead and haven't looked back. :) 


In each cohort, we aspire to give members an opportunity to develop both the hard and soft skills needed to work on real projects and real teams. We're an environment that rewards mutual support, self-learning and building projects that have impact (whether for others or your career or both).

The golden question we ask when making any decisions in the cohorts is "does this empower people and/or give them opportunities they wouldn't normally have?" Here are some of the questions that have shaped Chingu and why we exist:

Does having a support system of coding buddies with the same goals empower people to be more motivated and become better developers? Does having access to challenging remote dev team experiences help developers improve their hard & soft skills? Does having interesting finished projects in your portfolio increase your chances of getting a dev job?


New cohorts are usually launched once a month. They last about 5 weeks and you can keep joining new ones for free. 


Pledges go into the Chingu project - into hosting fees, project fees, and mainly time to facilitate and improve the cohorts. The Chingu cohorts is a side-project that has grown so much that it demands full-time hours.

And most importantly THANK YOU, the Chingu simply would not be possible without you.

One thing I've noticed with previous donations is that the people who donate to this one tend to be more active and committed in team projects and other activities. So going forward, whenever possible, I will form teams connecting people who have donated.
