Study groups (formerly known as mentored developer projects) are set up by ACCU members to learn or improve some software development skill - coding skills, team leadership, mentoring, analysis and design, specification or any other aspect of software development.
There's no fixed format for a study project. Past projects have included, for example, a beginners Python course, where experienced Python developers coached those new to the language. Book study projects have also been popular. Others still have had one person acting as a "customer" commissioning a piece of work from a group.
As an ACCU member you might consider setting up or joining a project if you have a skill you want to develop or improve or you have a skill you could mentor others in. ACCU can provide logistical support in the way of project mailing lists or wikis. We can also negotiate discounts on books you might use.
To get involved - to join a project, set one up, or simply see what's going on - visit the Study Groups area in the members section of the site (requires login).
