Welcome to the JPC Challenges!! 🏆
Welcome to the challenge component of our camp. As the challengers have outlined, this project that has been presented to you will be a work in progress over the duration of the camp, culminating in a body of work that you can use to display your new product management experience.
On the right, please fill out the form in order of preferance, allowing us to form teams based on your interest.
*note, we will try out best to give you your first choice, but this is not guaranteed
Team Formation 👥
We will be forming your team and annouce it later on slack and create channels for each team. To keep the teams small, we will have a maximum of four members per team, and two teams for each challenge theme.
Get comfortable with your team, find a common timeslot on weekdays or weekends to discuss and co-work
We encourage you to use GatherTown, Zoom or meet in person
Challenge Mentorship 🧑🏫
JPC is lucky to have many volunteer mentors who are here to help you through the creation of the final product. Each challenge will require teamwork, and the mentor will be there for guidance regarding any questions that you may have in problem solving. Once assigned a mentor, set up a weekly 1-on-1 with your mentor to track your progress and ask questions where you might be getting stuck
