WannaBe.Guru presentation

Most people think that studying is hard. When we decided to educate
newbies to web development, we knew we had to start with
making studying more interactive and fun.

The Idea Behind

Oleg Nesterov

MindK, CEO

“Many young people, who wanted to become web-developers, asked us what is essential to know to get a first job in a software development company. We combined our experience, best external resources (articles, books, video-tutorials) and the power of artificial intelligence to help people jump-start their career”

The Solution

Getting started with an examination
#1 Getting started with

Any web-development novice can be examined by WannaBe.Guru. It offers quizzes for several categories of knowledge (e.g. Git or Unix). Students can choose the category they are interested in and answer both theoretical and practical questions.


Keeping track of the progress
#2 Keeping track of the

After a quiz has been finished, the chatbot shows a student’s current rating. The very first results are helpful for figuring out the starting point. Every next result shows whether a user is getting closer to being called a “Guru”.


Best educational resources at the fingertips
#3 Best educational resources at the fingertips

By specifying the email address in settings, a user can get links to useful books, articles and video-tutorials. The resources grouped by theme will be delivered right into the inbox. Thus anyone can get relevant information to fill the knowledge gaps.


Empowered by machine learning
#4 Empowered by machine learning

WannaBe.Guru can answer user text messages which express greeting, valediction or gratitude. It responds to FAQs and reacts to different requests like “please start a quiz", "show settings”, etc.

Administration via Single Page Application
#5 An admin page to control and improve the bot

An admin can always control the bot. Through a laptop, tablet or a smartphone, Admin web page allows admin to manage lists of students, categories, questions, as well as add NLP intents.
