Challenge Title: Coding Challenge Platform Design
Challenge Difficulty: Intermediate
Estimated Time to Complete: 48-72 hours
Required Tools/Resources: Computer with internet access, coding software/platforms

Objective

Design a user-friendly and engaging coding challenge platform that caters to both beginners and experienced coders. The platform should provide a variety of challenges, tutorials, and resources to help users improve their coding skills.

Research

Research existing coding challenge platforms such as LeetCode, HackerRank, and CodeSignal to understand their features, strengths, and weaknesses. Identify the needs of different user groups (e.g., students, professionals) in terms of challenge difficulty levels, programming languages supported, and community interaction.

Materials

Choose materials (e.g., color schemes, fonts) that enhance readability and usability for users of all skill levels. Consider incorporating gamification elements to motivate users to complete challenges and track their progress.

Concept Development

Brainstorm ideas for unique features that set your platform apart from competitors. Develop wireframes or mockups to visualize the layout of the platform’s homepage, challenge pages, leaderboard system, etc. Focus on creating an intuitive navigation system that guides users through the platform seamlessly.

Deliverables

  1. Wireframes/mockups of key pages (homepage, challenge page)
  2. Description of key features (leaderboard system, tutorial section)
  3. User flow diagram outlining how users navigate through the platform

Evaluation Criteria

Projects will be assessed based on:
1. Innovation: Does the design offer new or improved features compared to existing platforms?
2. Usability: Is the platform easy to navigate and use for both beginners and advanced coders?
3. Engagement: Does the design incorporate elements that motivate users to participate in challenges regularly?

This challenge aims to inspire creative thinking in designing a coding challenge platform that meets the diverse needs of its user base while providing a seamless user experience throughout the platform’s interface.
