Frequently Asked Questions


We believe that every site has its own place on the internet which defines its purpose and activity on it. Facebook is too casual for technical/geeky stuff. "Having coffee at Aromas" is a common type of message on Facebook. On the other hand, on LinkedIn, people are very particular about whom to allow in their business and professional network. Students are not very welcome on LinkedIn because they are treated as clutter in that network by professionals. Hence they have no place to express what they feel about technologies, share their problems and Project-X is the place for it. In other words, Project-X is that technical hangout which the students miss today!

Project-X is not all about on which day which task was performed, who did it, how much total time did it consume, printing various reports related to that and presenting it to the higher management or teachers so that time sheets can be filled out! No! Project-X is much more than that! Project-X helps you look for a project idea,get your ideas reviewed, get help from industry people, upload all your project documents and diagrams at one place among other things. It provides you with an interactive real-time diagram utility for architecture and design discussions. Along with all this, it provides a log book to manage the tasks, while keeping it simple enough to cater to students’ needs without making it very industry like and official.

When you are a student and developing a project, your project profile on Project-X is your face to the technical world. You can upload all project related resources like diagrams, documents, even links to code (if you don’t mind sharing the code without violating any IP rules) on this site. You can take a look at other projects' activities and suggest modifications (if any) and also help them with their difficulties. You can invite your seniors and other industry personnel for a demo of your project and get valuable feedback from them and correct your mistakes in advance instead of waiting till the final exam.

As an industry or teaching professional, you have the required expertise to help students during their project work. Since you have gone through the same cycle before, you know exactly what are the pain points. In addition to that, this is a place for you to post your POC ideas and get them implemented from students. This is a place where you can look for freshers from recruitment point of view.

No, certainly not! This site is to help students execute their projects better. We do believe that if they do their projects sincerely, then getting good placement is a natural consequence or by-product. Any company that hires freshers, looks for a student's technical ability and communication skills. Project quality is a definite indicator of the technical ability and users can showcase their communication skills by putting a 3 to 4 minutes video on Project-X to show their communication skills. By doing this, as a student, you are placing your credentials as a good candidate for placement, in front of a large pool of technical experts from industry – which could possibly lead to placement!

Project-X provides users with elaborate privacy settings using which they can decide which parts or details of their project / idea should be exposed. Users can use it as required to protect their idea. In addition to that, every idea and project has an attribute "copyright" associated with it to make it amply clear about who has the copyright over it.

We believe that marks or scores are not a very good indicator of a person's technical ability and it may bias the person looking at the user's profile about the user's skills. Hence, Project-X does not provide any place where users can exhibit their marks.

Currently, Project-X team is not recruiting people from development of features point of view, but as a friend you are always welcome to give us your critical feedback and valuable suggestions to the team.

Yes, certainly. This is one of the biggest advantages for the industry user. You can have select technical users from your organization look at projects on the network and rate them. Based on the ones that get the highest rating, you can invite the students over to your office to get further details or interview them or maybe even give them an offer. You can get a much better idea about the candidate than just going by the marks.
In addition – when the network grows, students from other cities and states would also be joining the network giving the industry users an access to far more candidates than before.

Yes. That is the whole motive of Project-X. We want to be the bridge between guides from the industry or academia and the students. You can take a look at what the student has done and short list a group using a detailed work flow available on Project-X. By floating your idea or the fact that you are interested in having interns can be spread to the whole student community at one go – instead of putting up notices in different colleges.
