The approach guides members through regular video walkthroughs of every code change in the repository, demonstrating to its members how to build a complex application from scratch and the everyday decisions that go along with building software in the real world.By walking through a code base in this manner, members are guided through all aspects of requirements gathering, developing, and releasing software. This experience proves critical to taking members to the next level of software engineering.
