    I dont get how the school principal puts you on the spot with an interviewer without getting theyre credentials...

    Lucky you. I tried doing something similar in my school, and my principal forbid it. I know he can't tell me what me or my class mates do in our free time, but only his attempt to forbid it was ridiculous.

    @wildcard start your own irc server(nodejs) and connect to it through an app on your members phones([ios: “swift”, “obj-c”], [droid: “java”, “js]).
    Use api’s to connect to it, push notifications etc.

    And if you are really into it, skip the server go all in with firebase, there videos on youtube showing you exactly this.

    And I just realize there may be a company around this idea. Provide web apis for highschool kids to create school community clubs and learn to code mobile apps and servers.

    Dont let the powers that be control your curiosity and your own education. Your at school for a degree, not to get educated.

    @repollo Holy shit, I wanna do this! Awesome idea! A platform for students to learn languages / it in general collaboratively, chat about it, build learning circles, get professional help by voluntary developers who are paid by donations (or even make a startup and pay them professionally?)! Who's in?

    @wildcard damn that was fast. Im still working on naming 3 of my products which i made beta release 2 months ago...

    I love StuDev, yet if unsure:

    Look under the Naming stack...

    And you should probably think fast since look at this:

    @repollo I like studev.io, but it's 80usd per year, and I'm just a poor little student lol
