Each month a new simple homework assignment will be created. These homework assignments are meant to help bring the community together and help make VHS a better more welcoming place.
The homework assignments will not require any special skills that can’t be learnt in a day or two. If it requires resources they will be provided or a link will be given on where you can find them. Anyone should be able to complete these homework assignments.
People that have completed the homework assignment will receive;
- A badge in the Discourse system (Maybe Open Badge in the future)
- Social credit in VHS for doing awesome things!
- The person that does the best at completing the homework assignment will receive a special prize. (probably a mystery dev board)
Other prizes might be added to the homework assignment thread if they fit the theme
Proof of work
After you have completed the homework assignment please reply to the homework thread with your proof. Other people will “like” your reply to vote for it. You can vote as many times as you like.
