Do students or apprentices need to be directly involved in a Kata project?
Projects with tight deadlines or strict requirements may not allow for students to be directly involved. By developing in the open, a client can provide opportunities to learn by observation, generate exposure for their brand, and while ensuring their requirements are met.
What is the difference between Drupal Kata and Drupal Dojo?
Dojo as an all-in-one learning repository, collaboration space, training program, and producer of high quality learning materials proved to be a bit too ambitious for a volunteer group. By separating out the project learning program (Drupal Kata), the Dojo can be more of a facilitator and marketing platform multiple learning groups, sprints, and community initiatives. The new Dojo website will provide users many ways to learn from watching, listening, reading materials, and virtually collaborating in real time.
As an independent program, the Kata can not only use the Dojo, but build it as a learning project. It can also produce it's own learning materials that can be distributed via the Dojo platform.
