Thanks for jotting down your thoughts & ideas. If you have more, please throw them my way.

As I read over your thoughts, it sounds like you are looking for a self-contained hosted web solution for managing the learning engagement. Kind of like a CodeAcademy or other online tutorial based learning sites. Am I right?

How would you feel about a test automation oriented site that can be self hosted [Running in Docker] and all of the Test Automation Challenges & Lessons are on Github? Then you can use the tools of your choice for the creation of your automation learning journey.

Does this really allow the community to learn from each other? There's likely the biggest argument with that.

If you have someone that will assist - or can yourself! - look at codewars.com (you need to do a coding challenge to get in). They have a selection of exercises at various levels.

We are testers - we can decide levels ourselves, but sorting them by topic would help make sure that basic single-focus exercises are in a specific area. As for combining them - I'm not sure how it would work to an advantage.

Great point about not being able to easily leverage the knowledge of others if everything was don't standalone. And I'll take a look at codewars.com this weekend.

Have FUN! That is an interesting site - there are many good people there, doing everything from code golf to "just enough"
