Sage-Code is an independent research community for Computer Science and Information Technology. We study programming languages, software engineering and high performance computing. We create tutorials, compilers, new languages, components and frameworks.
We are inviting, students and fresh graduates who are looking to gain work experience. Our members usually do not have jobs or may be freelancers. If you have a job or you are a professional developer you will probably find nothing of value here. Our content is for beginers.
Sage-Code will try to provide higher quality articles for faster learning. Our content is oppinionated and subjective. We may say that one language, framework or methodology is better than another. We create disruptive methods and new concepts sometimes different from industry standard and school teachings.
Our projects are open source. So far we have started documentation projects to sustain our free training courses. In the future we will start new projects that may be for training or for business. For Sage-Code projects we agree and follow these basic rules:
- Written: All communication will be written; any relevant communication on chat rooms should be transcribed or summarized in writing using work items. We preffer GitHub projects for tracking.
- Complete: Communication should be comprehensive and complete. Assumptions are made explicit and key conclusions are summarized using GitHub wiki-pages and project related discutions or tickets.
- Archived: All communication will be archived, with the project code and documentation. We will set-up automatic backup for each project on a private server so we can restore communication in case of desaster or hack.
Every project require different tools but some tools are common. Once you have decided what project to follow you can contact the project team on Reddit to receive instructions for specific tools. Sooner or later you will need to register for some accounts on different platforms to have access before you can work on projects with other developers. We recommand to register accounts on these websites:
|Provider||We use it for|
|Store your profile for finding jobs|
|GitHub||Hosting projects and wiki books|
|Making google docs and classrooms|
|Microsoft||Team work using Teams and Notes|
|Feedback and general chat|
|Discord||Project specific chat services|
|Personal profile and twitts|
|YouTube||Video channel for training|
Our training is organized in two classes: Software Engineering and Computer Programming. If you are looking for a profession, we advice you start with Software Engineering. If you are looking for a Freelancer opportunity you can skip to Programming. Later, take also Engineering class to understend better how to make applications.
After you register on Reddit feel free to ask any question, post feedback or make suggestions to improve our content. For each post or comment you will receive reputation points. Reputation is a valuable asset of your Sage-Code profile. Also we appreciate your vote on our posts. If you like a post you can vote up or down to give or take reputation points to other members. It is more likely to get help and invitations to projects if your reputation grows higher.
A second way to grow your reputation is available on GitHub. On this platform you gain reputation by working on projects. In fact you may already have a reputation if you have a GitHub account. This reputation is very important for companies who are looking for developers to hire. You will for sure receive Job interview invitations into your e-mail account if you have activity on Sage-Code and Linkedin profile.
Our community has a presence on popular social media websites: We use GitHub to host our projects but also Linkedin and Twitter for contact, news and communication. Once you are on Twitter you can read news, like or comment and participate to our surveys. If you are on Linkedin, we will appreciate if you connect your profile to us, then we can provide endorsement for your activity on Sage-Code.
Our organization is distributed and open. Anyone can join but we do use a registry. You can use your own accounts that you already have on social platforms. So, your data is protected by different organizations not by Sage-Code. We advice you to have at least two public e-mail addresses and at least one private. Use your private address as a backup for the other two. Never reveal your private address to anyone so that you can recover your public accounts in case of a hack or lost password. Also, use two factor authentification if you have a phone.
On GitHub our members have virtual roles. This roles are necesary to establish trust and protect our community against trols. After we get to know you we will assign you a role depending on your qualification level and your contribution. We plan to have 4 roles:
- Guest: this role is for visitors. If you do not log-in you will use this role even if you are a registered member. With this role you can visualize our public content. You can browse some of our articles and even clone some of our projects for study.
- Freelancer: In this role you can interact with other members. We will assign this role after you finish your preliminary training on-line. We will invite you to an interview to receive this role.
- Researcher: in this role, you can start your own project using Sage-Code community. You can invite other members from our community to join you and help you out to develop it. Your project must be open source though.
- Instructors: are members that prove reliable. On this role you can create training videos, publish articles and research papers under our umbrela. Our instructors usually have a public profile on Linked-in website.
Visit us on: Reddit, register and join our community. We look forward to hear from you. You can connect with us on a chat room or you can post an article about your learning experience using our tutorials. Maybe you can give us ideas for new projects or help us fix mistakes in our code. We will appreciate your future contributions.
