During the last couple of weeks, we’ve been hard at work in collaboration with our community, building the things you told us you wanted most.
So here are the results.
But first, let me share a personal note. I think this is going to be the best release of the whole year. And why do I believe that?
The short and straightforward answer is that this release is packed with AWESOME features. But to make it clear, our primary goal is to support your professional growth from the beginning, and so far we have been able to do this in two ways:
1) By providing a snapshot of your current experience.
Yes, we truly believe that we can give you an accurate, 360-degree profile. Not only this way … 🙂
2) We take you one step closer to your dream job by showing you job offers that match your tech stack and needs.
However, with this update, we not only improved these two things but added a third too.
1) Meet your new, personalized LEARNING PATH (beta)
We’re beyond excited to introduce you to the most significant changes that have become available after months of hard work. And the first one is the learning path, which is a massive milestone in CodersRank’s life.
A step-by-step guide of what you should know
We created a personalized learning plan for you that covers all requirements and professional traits of being a good/skilled developer. We are going to provide you with a step-by-step guide on your learning path, so you will always know what you should do next and how it helps you improve your skills.
See your progress in numbers
We can evaluate your repositories, so while you are practicing new things that you have learned, your scores will increase. This is an excellent tool to track your progress.
Tools and technologies that you will use every day
We have prepared things for you that you will use in your daily work to create awesome projects. No worthless libraries, tools, or frameworks that are only used by 0.01% of companies.
How it works
As a first step, just select your own learning path.
Within each path, you’ll see different chapters, lessons, and tasks.
With our own AI-algorithm, we are generating recommended content for you based on your connected repositories.
Important notes regarding content
We don’t want to be a new Udemy or an n+1 coding challenge site. We just collect the most useful and relevant content for your needs – regardless of format or webpage. You can be sure that most of the time we’ll redirect you to the coding platforms that are most suitable to your needs.
You can also ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ these contents. By doing this, you help us suggest more relevant content in the future.
And after you finished a task, you can refresh your profile to check the difference.
Some additional notes:
- It’s available only for front-end developers right now.
- We are continually improving the quality and quantity of the content.
From now on, I think we can say that CodersRank is much more than a single profile page. And the best is yet to come. 🙂
Regarding the other features:
2) Say hello to our NEW LEADERBOARDS
Previously you could only see the developer rankings based on the scores.
Although it’s very difficult to determine where you acquired your knowledge, we thought your workplace and your education institutes were likely to play a role in this.
So from now on, there are 2 new leaderboards available.
Now you can see the top companies based on the users’ Total Scores.
First of all, we wanted to rank the companies based not on the average knowledge of the users, but the experience accumulated there. So we want to see how much knowledge is currently accumulated in each company.
Therefore, you’ll only support your current company.
For that matter, if you want to support your company, we suggest inviting your workmates to increase the total score of your workplace. You can do this easily in the Work Experience section.
You can also see the top education institutions based on the users’ Total Scores.
Unlike companies, we add your scores to every educational institution because we want to see which institutions have given the most active and experienced developers to the world.
3) Check out your new SCORE PROGRESS CHART
Our goal is to give you the most accurate picture of you. And we are planning further improvements to this in the future.
However, we do not just want to show a snapshot. We have a long-standing plan to show you your scores retroactively, and thus how you have improved.
The good news is that it is now available to you.
You can see how you have progressed, even by programming languages. And it’s also a good look back about when you started to use these ones.
4) Introducing the new TECHNOLOGY SECTION
So far, we have only given you feedback on different programming languages. However, this is not a complete picture of you, so we wanted to add a new section – technology – to your profile.
So you can better identify your strengths and weaknesses, and show others how you usually resolve an issue.
5) We hope you’ll also like the NEW LAYOUT of the skill boxes
And finally, we refreshed the layout of the skill boxes. Now they are more compact, and you can navigate quickly to the relevant leaderboard with one click.
All in all, we hope you’ll like these features. And of course, stay tuned – our backlog is full of ideas for the future. But right now,
