The Skillshare Front-End
As our team’s grown up at Skillshare, we’ve had to learn quickly how to architect an engineering front-end that scales with our product. We’re proud of the fast-paced, but robust engineering culture that’s emerged, and I’d like to take the opportunity to share a high-level picture of our stack in a hope to surface some actionable takeaways, or if nothing more, offer an insightful view into our front-end world.
Simplifying the Online Classroom
We’re continually refining what it means to learn online, and over the last few months, we’ve been launching a range of new features to make learning online as valuable, affective and as fun as possible. To name a few, these new features include; Groups – to learn with a smaller circle of students, Discussions – to collaborate with your classmates, and the Syllabus – to most importantly, guide you through class, learn new skills, and complete your in-class project.
