Apprenticeship: Marketplace

Mentor: ~timluc-miptev Reward: 1 Stars Apply for this grant

A marketplace in which users can post goods for sale and browse goods for sale by other users. Probably similar in feel to Craigslist. A lot of design will be required here, since the space of possible things to make is very big.

The most likely architecture has users hosting their items, with aggregator-type services listing and indexing items from multiple users. It's also possible that sales will be able to designate escrow parties for money or goods, and/or arbitrator parties to decide when a sale is complete.

Simple versions of this can be implemented to learn userspace programming, and a particular good design could become its own product.
