It surely is a bizarre concept, but there’s now a Chatroulette for developers – and it’s surprizingly fun.
Coderoulette is an interactive collaborative website where instead of flashing your penis, you have to flash your code.
“We're hunting for awesome startups”
Run an early-stage company? We're inviting 250 to exhibit at TNW Conference and pitch on stage!
The platform randomly pairs up coders from around the world and tasks them with various programming challenges they have to work out together in real time. In short, it’s all the fun of Chatroulette without any of the guilt.
To get started, you’ll have to sign in with your Facebook or Github account and answer a few preliminary questions with regards to your coding experience and (spoken) language preferences.
Once you’ve done that, Coderoulette will proceed to partner you up with another coder.
To actively encourage collaborative learning, Coderoulette will match developers with complimentary strengths. This means that each time you get paired with someone else, only one of you will have familiarity with the programming language the task requires you to use.
Go give Coderoulette a spin here.
