We know that starting off with nothing in your hands is super hard. Octanis members therefore get immediate access to beginner-level tutorials related to the tools, hardware and software we regularly use in our projects. As a member, you are free to choose what skills you want to learn next and you can keep track of your learning progress over time. We want our members to stand on their own feet as early as possible.
We believe we have a unique way of working together. It's almost like a game: You do something, show it to everyone online and get instant feedback. This tight feedback loop has given members an enormous amount of satisfaction and permits fast iteration cycles. Every project we do is for the greater good, targeting a crazy goal or both - and any revenue is reinvested in members projects according to a fair scheme.
Nobody cares for sleeping projects at Octanis. Members leading projects understand that a fast pace is necessary to keep momentum and interest up. Our rule of thumb: If a project hasn't had substantial progress after 18 months, we put it on the shelf for another day.Read the Code
